​By taking this step together, you and your intended are making a statement about your commitment to one another, your shared values, and your belief that you are an integral part of a shared, interconnected universe.  Jewish wedding rituals are truly beautiful, full of symbolism and tradition.  The fundamental elements of a Jewish wedding have evolved over many generations to help enhance your connection to one another, your families, the local Jewish community and the Jewish people in general.  Jewish wedding rituals create a vessel intended to capture the rich feelings of joy and love, awe and wonder, allowing us to give expression to our highest selves and emotions.  A Jewish ceremony permits us to feel closer to the mysteries of the universe and God, even if for a few moments.  A Jewish wedding offers a deep sense of continuity, providing the sacred space to make your ceremony deeply meaningful and memorable.  Every Jewish wedding is a celebration!
