My Wedding: Saturday Part 2
I can't get over how awesome my friends are, they all came DECKED out!
The day of the wedding, the temperature had drop 40 degrees from what it was on Monday! It turned out to be in the 40's and drizzling - such is life! Luckily, we were able to move the ceremony into our tent and push the tables around. I think it turned ou beautifully! You just have to roll with it on the day of the wedding...
Instead of the traditional circle of the man around the woman, we each circled each other 3 times and then walked in a circle together once.
My godmonther Galia lighting the traditional candles!
Each of our parents reciting blessings they wrote themselves.
Our beyond incredible Ketubah (A Jewish marriage contract) that my godmother Galia Goodman (Of Galia Graphics) created! She does this for a living, and we were beyond excited and honored that she made ours for us. The craftsmanship, love and detail put into this piece is incredible. We worked hard with her to incorporate both tradtional Jewish elements as well as Hindu motifs. Thank you Galia!!
Personal vows...We definitely both cried!
Drinking wine from my mom's family Kiddush cup.
Instead of having our Rabbi read the 7 blessings, we divvied them out between close friends and family, I loved this part of the ceremony!
So yes, there are a lot of wonderful talented people in my close circle: this wooden Chuppah was crafted and created by my other godmother Meredith! It was so special to be married under something someone close to us had made.

Rachit and I LOVE hot sauce, especially Sriracha, so I made it my mission to have it at the wedding! I drew labels for us, had them printed and then worked with my mom and friends the week before the wedding to fill these hot sauce bottles and label them. They also doubled as wedding favors!
My incredible planner Chelsey, of Gather Toogether events made these hanging farm tables a reality! She had the incredible idea and then worked with our tent designer and rental company to figure out the logistics - so worth it! Thank you Chelsey!!
Locally farmed food and lots of goat cheese! Our entire day was catered beautifully by The Inn at Celebrity Dairy.
