A wedding is a formal union of a couple’s different families. However, for Gabriella and Ritchie is was also the joining of their two religions, with Gabriella’s Jewish heritage playing a key part in the day.
Wearing a beautiful lace detail gown, Gabriella and Ritchie enjoyed a traditional Jewish ceremony. This included Richie breaking a glass, based on the tradition when loud noises were used as a time-honored method for frightening and appeasing demons that were attracted to beautiful and fortunate people, such as the happy couple beneath the huppah.
After the ceremony, everybody joined together for a mix of group family shots and romantic couple photos before the cutting of the elegant rose decorated cake.
The wedding party then tucked into a tasty wedding breakfast and was entertained with the laughter filled speeches. The pair’s wedding was then completed with a few more couple photos and their first dance as man and wife.
