Part 3: Ceremony & Chuppah

Anticipation grew as guests took their seats to witness Sara and Mitch’s nuptials. In just moments, the couple would meet under beautiful, floral adorned chuppah.

When it comes to choosing wedding attire, most brides-to-be let personal style be their guide. After all, you want to look and feel like yourself, but with a bit more polish and shine around the edges.
