Lauren & Josh’s Arboretum Wedding

Lauren and Josh had their ceremony and reception at the Houston Arboretum. The couple’s half traditional Jewish/half laid-back wedding approach was very refreshing to witness. The traditional parts, thanks to Wikipedia for the spellings, were the inclusion of the ketuba (marriage contract), a wedding canopy (called a huppah), a ring owned by the groom that was given to the bride under the canopy, and the breaking of a glass at the end of the ceremony. At one point I began mouthing along with the Jewish prayers which I had learned while working with Kindergarten students at a Jewish academy. I felt as if I was apart of their family really. The non-traditional parts particularly gave me a perfect introduction to the couple’s personalities. There was a soul deejay, soul band, tasty vegan food, and great dancing. Basically, everyone had the chance to let their hair down, and wrap their face with a bandana (scroll down). I absolutely adored shooting this wedding alongside my second shooter Mike Andrick.¬†Congratulations, Lauren and Josh!
