Chava and Josh – 9/17/16 – Aster Cafe, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Chava and Josh met around a bonfire. Their eyes met, they starting talking and immediately felt a connection. Both of them are intelligent and combined have incredible talents like fire-breathing and acting. They wanted their wedding day to be a celebration of gratitude and feature pieces of their shared experiences and cultures which is one of the reasons they chose the lovely and unique Aster Cafe to host their ceremony and reception.
The day started at Chava’s hotel room. Her mother and aunt were busy making the bridal bouquets and floral decorations. Chava showed up from the salon with beautiful vintage hair and was soon after zipped in to her delicate vintage dress by her sisters.
Their first look was at Boom Island park, and it was crazy busy! There was a music festival taking place, so for everyone to get there was a job well done! We found a quiet corner of the park and were able have fun doing all their formal photos. After a little one on one time with the bride and groom, the party traveled to the Aster for the ceremony.
Josh’s sons greeted the guests with a program and package containing several gifts like a necklace and tulip bulb. Their ceremony was done by a very close friend and combined traditions of Judaism as well as astrological and pagan rituals. It was incredible! So exciting, so meaningful, and it kept their guests engaged and involved. They jumped the broom, kissed and marched into the cocktail hour where everyone eventually gathered for cocktails and noshing.
After dinner and toasts, the happy could did their first dance, and these two can move! They know how to swing dance and get the party started. There were several moments once everyone joined the dance floor where I was photographing and dodging some crazy awesome dancers.
Chava and Josh’s wedding day overflowed with words and moments of love and gratitude, and it was one of the most unique and special wedding days I have ever had the joy to be apart of! Thank you Chava and Josh! Cheers to many more happy years together!
