Chuppah for a Jewish/Greek Orthodox wedding

Here is a photo of the chuppah from tonight’s  Moroccan French Jewish/Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony at the St. Regis here in NYC.  Upon our altar were the lambadas (Greek candles),  a silver tray with the koufetta (sugar covered almonds) and the stephana (crowns), the groom’s grandfather’s tallit, the kiddush cup with French kosher wine, a covered glass for the breaking of the glass, and a plate of dates and a glass of milk with honey to seal their marriage with sweetness (a Moroccan tradition).   We combined the traditional and the personal.   We told their love story and honored family.   So many blessings!   I am aglow with the stardust of their love.  Pure joy!  Matthew Andersen from The Wedding Library was the event planner and he did an outstanding job!   The room felt like a cloud–heaven itself.   I have the honor of performing  Matthew’s wedding this coming  July.   Chuppah for Greek Orthodox-Jewish Wedding
