Rebecca and Michael were married at the Hyatt at the Bellevue in Philadelphia, a city in which Rebecca and Michael have a wonderful history. They’ve lived in several apartments in the city, had their “puppy love” moments there and even shared their engagement dinner at their favorite restaurant in the city. The Bellevue was a wonderful choice in venues for this most special occasion of their lives together to date.
Rebecca and Michael observed and celebrated in many Jewish traditions on their wedding day. Their chuppah was exquisitely adorned with an abundance of florals, including lush pink, red and white roses. It was almost as gorgeous as Rebecca on her wedding day! Her stunning wedding gown was light with ruffles in the skirting that flowed just beautifully. And Michael was very handsome in a classic black and white tuxedo.
The grand Hyatt at the Bellevue was filled with even more roses! Jamie Rothstein Floral & Event Design provided dramatic centerpieces in white and red and a special masterpiece for the bride and groom’s table. The glamorous Hyatt, with its dazzling chandeliers, artistically painted high ceilings and lavish draperies was made even more elegant for this occasion.
Beautiful wedding photos were taken by Cliff Mautner at the Hyatt as well as other locations around Philadelphia, including a special stop at Washington Square. The love Rebeca and Michael share was so evident throughout the day.
At the reception, great care was taken in observing more wonderful traditions, including dancing the Hora and the crowning ceremony of Rebeca’s mother. In addition, both parents were honored in the Mizinke, a beautiful ceremony celebrating the marriage of Rebecca’s parents’ last child.
Then it was time for all the guests to get into the action! The hip sounds of L.A. Starz from EBE Events and Entertainment kept the crowd on its feet for the entire evening. They were really terrific!
We tremendously enjoyed filming Rebecca and Michael on their wedding day and in sharing some of their favorite and most meaningful locations around the city. Congratulations to Rebecca and Michael! May your love only grow stronger and deeper with each passing year.
