A Jewish wedding at sunset in a stark biblical setting during summer is something I never tire of. It brings together a set of elements which combine to give a significant start to the young couple's life together. The fading light and a view of the countryside combine in seriousness and are often countered by the Masader Kiddushin (ceremony officiant) who tries to lighten the occasion and put the young couple at ease. After darkness has fallen, the band lights up and commonly the strobe lighting gives a cascade of colors.
This collection shows key elements such as the chuppah (bridal canopy), bride, wine and cup, setting of the ceremony, band, family and guests.
