Wedding at Vecoma at Yellow River in Snelville Georgia – Joy & Robert

What a special wedding this was! Robert and Joy’s ceremony and reception were held at Vecoma at the Yellow River in Snellville, GA. This venue is a real hot-spot for weddings in Atlanta , and was showcased beautifully by the perfect spring weather we enjoyed. You can almost see Stone Mountain from there! This was our first time photographing a Hebrew ceremony and it was deeply moving. I have been so excited to share the details of this wedding on the blog, because it was so unique and spiritual.

One of the unique aspects that you will notice, is that Joy used a variety of colors in the wedding, representing the variety of promises God has given and the uniqueness of the friends and family members that have helped shape the couple’s lives.

and how cute is this? Joy and her friends were so much fun! They had this great idea for a “Charlie’s Angels” pose with flowers instead of guns (of course!)

The Rabbi began the ceremony by playing the shofar. The sound was so beautiful, it gave me chills!

The bride and groom exchanged their vows under the chuppah, which represents the protection of God over his people and the home that Robert and Joy are creating together.

Robert read the Ketubah to Joy. This is a written marriage covenant of the promises he is making to her as her husband.

 Sand covenant

Joy and Robert poured salt into a vase together, representing combining their lives together. And just as their own grains of salt could never be separated out again, their lives will be interwoven.

This was one of my favorite aspects of the Hebrew ceremony. During the ceremony, Joy and Robert walked in circles around the other, representing promises that they are making to one another.

Another fun group picture. This wedding party had great timing. I think they only had to jump twice.
