Emory Conference Center Wedding, Small and Sweet

Small weddings are often my favorites. Laid back and intimate, like Shannon and Joel's Sunday wedding at the Emory Conference Center, small weddings bring together important friends and family in a show of support for a couple entering into wedded bliss.

Here are a few favorites from this Jewish wedding celebration filled with thoughtful rituals, symbolizing the exquisiteness of the relation between husband and wife, as well as their promises to each other and to the Jewish people.
