Timeless, elegant with plenty of personal details packed in, Julie and Jordan’s wedding in Washington DC is guaranteed to make your heart happy on this fine Monday morning! These cuties said their “I Do’s” in a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony at one of my favorite venues in the city and, lucky for us, Eli Turner Studios was on hand to capture every darling detail. Come back later this morning to see their peach and ivory reception!
From Julie: It is the most extraordinary experience to walk into a room, see only familiar faces, and feel love coming at your from all parts of your life. We wanted our wedding to be a celebration of all the people who have shaped us and supported us. We also wanted it to be a really fun dance party!
We incorporated a lot of family heirlooms – particularly a lot of religious heirlooms – into our ceremony. In traditional Jewish ceremonies, the wedding ring has to be a plain gold band. We used my grandmother’s wedding band. She was is the front row and that felt really special. I’m named after my great grandfather and we were wrapped in his prayer shawl at the end of the ceremony. Also, we drank from Jordan’s dad’s wine goblet.
