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.Â Congratulations, Lauren and Josh!
Gorgeous! We loved having both of you at our wedding and couldn’t have asked for better photographs.
Thank you, Lauren! I can’t believe my luck recently with such awesome brides like yourself. I’m so happy we got the chance to work together.
