Creating anticipated events.
Hannah Katz and Jonathan Feldman, both living in Washington, D.C., were married at Adath Jeshuran Synagogue, in Louisville.
Over 130 of the 200 guests either flew or drove-in for the event. The out-of-towners stayed at a small hotel downtown. The weekend
began Friday night with a dinner at The Willow near Cherokee Park. Saturday night a dessert reception was held in the couple's
honor at the Bride's parents' home. The traditional Jewish wedding started Sunday at noon with a "nosh and greet" followed with the
traditional events leading up to a Jewish wedding. The ceremony followed and finally the reception began. Music was provided
throughout the event by the Pendulum Orchestra...WOW!

Traditional Jewish weddings begin with guests visiting with the bride and groom in separate rooms. Here, the bride is in
the larger room, under a gazebo. Appetizers and drinks were served and a live band entertained guests.
The groom's room is more business-oriented. Here, the groom and the witnesses are signing the Ketubah, or Jewish
marriage contract (also pictured on right). Lighter appetizers and Bourbon were served in this room.
Once the paperwork is signed and the rest of the business is in order, the male guests dance the groom into the
bride's room so he may veil his bride.
