Olivia + Nick: Cleveland Ohio Orthodox Jewish Wedding

On a Wednesday in November, the day before Thanksgiving, I traveled up to Cleveland to join Olivia + Nick and their friends and family to capture their amazing wedding day! In proper Orthodox Jewish tradition and culture, it was a total blast – full energy, a truly participatory action-packed celebration!

I started my day with Olivia and her family getting ready at her house, while my second shooter Scott Shaw started with the Nick and his family down the street at Green Road Synagogue. Getting details and some group portraits out of the way ahead of time, we headed straight into events. The kabbalat panim took place in one room, the tisch in another, culminating as both sides caming together for the bedeken, and Olivia and Nick finally saw each other for the first time among song and dance of the crowd! Such a beautiful and meaningful moment!

From there, it was straight into the chuppah in the main sanctuary, and once Nick broke the glass, their friends stormed the aisle and ushered them out to their yichud, singing loudly along the way! Afterwards, we took a few minutes for a handful of couples pictures back in the sanctuary, before Olivia and Nick were welcomed to the reception and entered a 45 minute hora! Full of wild dance moves and shtick, the hora was lively and hilarious! Following dinner, we were back on the dance floor for more fun, and we ended the evening with some night shots!

Mazel Tov to Olivia and Nick! Such an honor to be a part of your wedding day!

About

I aim to capture moments and expressions that tell the story of a day, and are authentic to the people involved. If you can look at a collection of images I’ve taken of a total stranger and get a feeling for who they are and what they felt, then I’ve done my job!
