The bridesmaids wore elegant, full length fuschia dresses as they walked down the aisle, carrying bouquets of fushia and pink roses.Â Adam was escorted by his parents, then waited under the chuppah for Robin’s entrance.
She was beautiful and regal, hair drawn up beneath her veil in a bun at the crown of her head, with a dazzling smile as Jeff performed the traditional “Bridal Chorus” on guitar for the processional…a song more commonly known as “Here Comes the Bride.”
Rabbi Hershel Jaffe led a simple, moving ceremony including the Seven Blessings and concluding with an explanation of the breaking of the glass.Â Robin and Adam were married with the wedding rings worn by Robin’s grandparents!
The tables in the ballroom were decorated with fuschia and pink roses accented with dark purple flowers.Â (Don’t I wish for a horticultural background so that I could tell you what they were.Â They were so beautiful!)Â White boxes with fuschia lettering matched the printed menus.
The toasts revealed the story of Robin and Adam’s romance: Robin actually met Adam’s mother first, as a student in her art class.Â And it was an advanced art class that would bring the couple together years later.
A photo montage put to music, “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen, treated guests to snap shots of Robin and Adam as they grew up and fell in love.
The night was filled with energetic dancing and celebration.Â One of my favorite moments…music geek and pun fan that I am…was watching Robin dance to the Jackson Five’s “Rockin’ Robin.”
Well done, Robin and Adam!Â Off to an amazing Hawaiian honeymoon…
