Modern Orthodox Jewish Wedding | Real Brides & Weddings

Shimra and Jonathon were married Labor Day weekend at the Torat Emet Synagogue in Bexley, Ohio. Shimra, with her closest friends and family around, got ready for the most exiting day of her life.

As she stepped into her custom lace and tulle gown, everyone in the room could feel her overwhelming joy. In the same building, Jonathon calmly got ready with anticipation. After the the last cuff link had been fastened and one more final spray of hairspray, Shimra and Jonathon headed out of the synagogue separately in anticipation of their first look. The perfect scene was set in a close friends private garden on a Bexley estate that is something out of a fairy tale.

After a laughter-filled formal photo session, the pair headed back to the synagogue to begin the festivities. From the band that flew in from New York City to the artfully crafted food made by the bride’s brother and the temple built from stone flown in from Israel, this wedding was anything but ordinary.
