Le Meridien Hotel wedding - Erica & Justin

What a gorgeous wedding- Erica and Justin put so much time into having a touching ceremony, and intimate, fun reception and it truly showed.

Erika is so expressive. I love her smile!
Before the ceremony, the girls were on one side, the guys on the other. It's called Kabbalat Panim; Erica was greeting guests while guests were singing and toasting with Justin.

The rabbi explained that the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony because of ancient practice- the groom needs to make sure he's marrying the right girl. :) It's also a symbol that outward beauty isn't a priority.
Then they read the Katubah (marriage contract), say vows, and sign the Katubah

Justin and Erica's parents gave them blessings as well. It was moving.

Before the ceremony began, Erica circled Justin seven times, symbolizing wholeness.

The longest first kiss ever! YAY!

So happy they literally frolicked down the aisle. You might remember previous frolicking from E&J's engagement session at the Arnold Arboretum.

What an awesome cake!!
At the reception, the guests entertained Justin and Erica by singing and dancing and being goofy. What a party!! (and all before dinner was even served!)
It worked! They were thoroughly entertained!

Breaking the bread.

Wedding Tip of the Week - pack comfy shoes

I love shoes as much as the next girl (and the amount of shoe photos I take might be a little much), but do yourself a favor and pack something comfy and cute. My amazing cousin Lisa bought me some comfy shoes for my wedding day, and I couldn't have been happier dancing around in cute white flip-flops instead of my heels. (I actually still wear them regularly and it makes me happy to think of the first time I wore them!) The wedding we did last weekend actually provided flip-flops in the women's bathroom so noone would be uncomfortable as the night wore on. Erin- I loved that idea!

So, if you don't think you can last in your Jimmy Choos all night- bring a back up :) You definitely don't want any excuse not to dance!
