This day. This shining, bright, beautiful Atlanta day. I arrived at the Park Tavern in Piedmont Park already filled with the kind of anticipation and joy that only comes with knowing that the bride and groom of the day are so perfectly matched, so beautifully aligned and in love. Menucha and Austin are two of the most genuinely loving, gentle, kind-hearted and wonderful people I know. It was so much fun seeing them come together on their wedding day, surrounded by the boundless love of their communities. A truly beautiful modern Jewish wedding, this event had it all. It’s impossible to say which was my favorite part. Was it the bedekken — where the bride and groom saw each other for the first time in days — surrounded by the dancing, singing community? Or maybe it was the ceremony, where Menucha and Austin so lovingly held on to each other, and read their wonderful vows? Or maybe it was the dancing after the ceremony. So. much. dancing.
I feel so lucky that I got to be there, let alone be inside so many intimate moments of the day.
