Marissa and Jeremy tied the knot last June on a gorgeous, sunny day that was perfect for their wedding at Pomme!
The girls, clad in matching embroidered blue robes, began their day with hair and makeup at the Philadelphia Marriott West, while the guys were getting ready in the same hotel, but in a separate room. It took a little maneuvering but the two groups were careful to avoid each other as they prepared to head over to Pomme, where Marissa got dressed with the help of her bridesmaids.
Her strapless wedding dress was breathtaking, and was accented at the waist with a beaded sash. Marissa wore bright fuchsia pumps to match her fuchsia bouquet and the fuchsia bridesmaid dresses that her girls wore. The bridesmaids all wore knee-length dresses, with the exception of the maid of honor, who wore a full length mermaid style dress!
Marissa and Jeremy had their first look at Pomme, outside on the bridge near the entrance. Jeremy was blown away by his bride-to-be, and the two were so ecstatic to start their big day together!
Marissa and Jeremy are both Jewish, (Jeremy is a Rabbi himself!) and had a mostly traditional Jewish ceremony. The men gathered for the Tish, and both Jeremy and Marissa's mothers came into the room at the end for the ceremonial plate breaking. Jeremy then met up with his bride during the Bedeken, where she was waiting for him to put her veil on.
After the Bedeken, the two signed the Ketubah, which Jeremy wrote himself, and began to make their way upstairs for the ceremony. Marissa made the beautiful Chuppah herself!
The reception, in true Jewish fashion, was lively, exciting and full of fun, complete with lots of spinning and the bride and groom being hoisted in the air sitting on chairs!
To top off the whole night, the newlyweds had two awesome cakes: a beautiful cupcake tower cake, and a Superman groom's cake for Jeremy!
Needless to say, it was a wedding to remember!
