There were so many things that I loved about this wedding. Where do I begin? Let’s start with the most important- the bride! Rebekah looked absolutely beautiful in her stunning gown. She was truly glowing. Her excitement for marrying Russ was radiating from her as she walked down the aisle. Some brides often look slightly nervous or overwhelmed, not Rebekah! She was so happy to be marrying the man of her dreams. My second favorite thing? The actual ceremony! The bride is Jewish and incorporated many traditional Jewish customs in the ceremony. Before the ceremony, the Rabbi took the time to explain the meaning behind the traditions. I was able to learn more from his explanations. I really thought that it was a nice addition to the ceremony. The ceremony also included traditions from the groom’s faith. The Rabbi even read excerpts from the Bible. This blended ceremony was so beautiful! Now I can not forget to mention the view and the weather! If you would have told me that I was going to be a little chilly that night (begining of October is still HOT here in Tampa), I would have laughed at you. The weather was just as gorgeous as the view of the Bay. Since we were on the water, it was windy and cool. The sunset view from The Rusty Pelican was the perfect backdrop for this wedding. I was originally supposed to play this wedding as a harp/flute duo. Unfortunately, my flautist was hospitalized shortly prior to the wedding. Thankfully he is in recovery and was able to attend the ceremony briefly as a guest. I’m so thankful that I was able to witness such a beautiful ceremony of the happy couple. Thank you for allowing me the honor to be a part of your special day! Mazel Tov!! Click on the photo below to start the slideshow!
