Like a cake, the basic ingredients of a Jewish wedding stay the same. But everyone has their own personal take on the recipe. The foundations include the Ketubah, ring exchange, and the seven blessings. The Ketubah is a signed and witnessed marriage contract. The ring represents an exchange of something of value. And the seven blessings each thank God in a different way.
While the first kiss would normally be the highlight of most western ceremonies, with Jewish weddings it is the breaking of the glass. The breaking of the glass serves as a reminder of all the struggles Jewish people have faced in the past. It’s loud noise also serves to scare away any demons who may be lingering over the wedding day. This is very similar to Greeks breaking plates, or Muslims making their war cry.
The reception kicked up with a group dance. The couple dances with their families in large circles periodically working their way through the crowd. The highlight of this event is the famous chair lift. The bride and groom each sit in a chair lifted by their family members. This particular couple wasn’t planning on having this experience however it seems they didn’t really have a choice when the family is involved.
