Jamie and Jared are such a wonderful couple and truly couldn’t be more perfect for each other. We were overjoyed to be filming their wedding day and celebrating with them on this most important day, a wedding event that Jamie and Jared carefully and thoughtfully planned together.
This wedding event took place at Glen Foerd on the Delaware, a stately historic mansion and grand estate overlooking the Delaware River in Philadelphia. Taking a fun break during their preparations, Jamie and her bridal party enjoyed celebrating with champagne outside before getting dressed into their gowns in the bridal suite of the mansion. Nearby, Jared took some time to relax with his groomsmen, to talk and have a beer before the day’s events. We were so happy that the couple also took a moment to read such wonderfully penned love notes to each other too, each expressing their happiness and excitement for this day! But soon it was time to finish dressing!
Jared and his groomsmen wore matching classic tuxedos, Jared standing out in navy blue, and Jamie’s bridesmaids and maids of honor dressed into coordinating champagne colored gowns. Jamie was such a stunning bride in her amazing fit and flare silhouetted, lace covered strapless gown! She completed her look with dazzling jewelry, a delicate headband and a long flowing veil for the ceremony. So gorgeous!
Before their ceremony, the couple shared in an exciting first look there on the grounds of the mansion, then entered the dining room to sign the ketubah. We were so happy to capture these events and to be filming alongside the wonderful team from Lauren Fair Photography on this special day.
Then the ceremony began outside under a gorgeous chuppah overlooking the Delaware River. Oleander did such a fantastic job filling this event with beautiful, lush florals and greenery. And we absolutely loved the beautiful sentiments, the vows that Jamie and Jared each shared there, detailing their wonderful history together and professing their unending love for each other.
Jamie and Jared’s reception was held inside the mansion and included more beautiful Jewish traditions, such as the hamotzi (or the blessing) over the challah bread and of course, dancing the Hora! Afterwards, the Mezinke tradition was held to honor Jamie’s parents as Jamie was their last child to be married. She placed wreaths on her parents’ heads as they were celebrated by their friends and family! The entire wedding day was coordinated wonderfully by Jamie Hollander Catering & Events for Glen Foerd on the Delaware.
The reception continued with laughter and dancing, with music courtesy of the amazing Hank Lane Music! And be sure to check out that scrumptious three-tiered naked cake from Cake Life Bake Shop. But Jamie and Jared planned another surprise dessert treat for guests… pretzels and Mister Softee ice cream!
Jamie and Jared’s wedding day was filled with so many personal touches and was simply put, so perfect! We truly enjoyed getting to work with this sweet couple and having the opportunity to celebrate with them on this most important day. Congratulations and best wishes to Jamie and Jared!
