I have been patiently waiting all year for Shira and Eli’s wedding…..and what a momentous event it was!! These people can PARTY!!!!
And yes, I have to admit that I cried as Shira walked down the aisle. I couldn’t help it! I’m human!!! (and the bridesmaids called me out on it as well, so I had to fess up.)
Thank you to my über-super friend, Katia and my über-wonderful husband Tristan for their help with this wedding.
We started the day at the Renaissance Hotel, where the bride and groom got ready…
Lovely moms and bridesmaids….
Shira’s mother shared some adorable photos of Shira as a little girl….
Here she is dressed as a bride!
Ilana (Shira’s little sister) helped her get dressed…
Shira’s groom, Eli, is a photography aficionado…..he brought his camera to his own wedding!!
Bow ties are not easy to tie…
Look at this guy! heehee!!!
Little sis talking to future brother-in-law before he sees his bride for the first time….
I think Eli is tossing a film canister in the air in this next pic….
Taking a look at his beautiful bride!….
After the first look, we walked over to Heinz Hall….
The towel for the Breaking of the Glass was a Terrible Towel!!
Shira and Eli picked Somebody to Love by Queen as their recessional! AND….the string quartet from Symbiotic Collusion KILLED it!!! WOOHOO!!!! (Go ahead and click on that link! I’m in the middle picture with the green scarf on!)
Beautiful purple and silver wedding details! Eli designed their logo!
Shira and Eli love cheese SO MUCH, that they decided to have a “cheese cake” instead of a traditional wedding cake!
The cheeses that made up this cake are: Humboldt Fog, Iberico, Morbier, and BellaVitano.
Eating their cheese….. my shot:
Everyone was on the dance floor the ENTIRE night! Every chair in that room was empty!
Dancing the Hora!…..
