It was a beautiful fall day when Braxton arrived to photography Nikki and Zeev’s big day! The couple began by getting ready with family and friends.
Nikki looked so lovely, with her elegant dress and beautiful updo by Aim & Ailie Hair Boutique.
Nikki and Zeev met before the ceremony for a first look and a small photoshoot around the grounds of North Suburban Synagogue Beth El
I love when our wedding couples get goofy!
I love this beautiful bouquet by Patti at Oh My! Floral.
They took a quick trip to the Evanston Lakefront for a few photos before heading back to the synagogue.
Back at Beth El, they began the traditional pre-wedding ceremonies: The tish and the signing of the ketubah.
The ceremony was held outside the synagogue. Look at this beautiful chuppah!
The groom and bride circled one another seven times. I love this Jewish wedding tradition!
Hooray Nikki and Zeev!
As the light faded, the guests were ushered into the reception.
The parents of the happy couple gave speeches, and Nikki and Zeev gave a speech right back!
After a delicious dinner from Danziger Kosher Catering, everyone gathered around the dance floor to get down with Mama Digdown’s Brass Band.
It is so much fun to photograph these dancing traditions! And these people knew how to party!
The hora! I love the movement in these photos!
Congratulations Nikki and Zeev! Thanks for having Braxton along to photograph your beautiful wedding.
