Traditional Jewish Wedding Ceremony

Nicholas’s father officiated Simin and Nicholas’s Jewish ceremony, which concluded with the traditional breaking of the glass. “Traditionally, this act is meant to remind the couple that love and life are fragile and must be protected,” Simin says. “For us, two people from different cultural backgrounds, this moment also signified the breaking down of barriers to help create a world based on love, unity, peace and understanding.”
