Gardens at Elm Bank Wellesley Wedding With Michelle & Jeff
Michelle and Jeff had a beautiful summer wedding in Wellesley at The Gardens at Elm Bank. Before they knew it, this wedding was set years in advance. They each grew up in the same town, attending the same highschool, the same college and moved next to each other in Boston where they eventually met.
They each shared a desire to have the ceremony take place outside set to traditional classical and jewish music played by the Keros String Quartet with the gardens and summer sun as the backdrop for their guests arrival. Michelle took part in the Jewish tradition of circling Jeff once she arrive to the huppah accompanied by the traditional song ‘Dodi Li’. At the end of the ceremony Jeff gleefully executed the tradition of breaking the glass to usher in the beginning of their marriage as Siman Tov, Mazel Tov played and their guests sang and clapped!
Cocktails continued outdoors before the reception began in the Carriage House to the high energy of their hora with the women joining the bride first then the men leading to an amazing burst of dancing right at the beginning of the evening. During dinner wonderful stories of them and toasts exchanged along with their First Dance ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ by Haley Reinhart. We had an amazing time performing for the special moments during the ceremony all to the high energy of dancing the continued after dinner.
Congratulations Michelle and Jeff to such a beautiful wedding and letting us be apart of the personal moments. Also, thank you Gardens at Elm Bank for being so wonderful to work with.
