Real Wedding Recap: Noah & Jill, II

The Wedding Day, Sunday, dawned bright and…rainy!  Oh no!  Jill & Noah had planned to have their ceremony outside, and the skies were just NOT having it Sunday morning.  Luckily, the rain moved through all day and around 3:00pm, the sky opened up, the sun came out, and it turned into a really beautiful afternoon.  Outdoor ceremony, saved!

Here’s Dr. Groomy and I in the hotel lobby before leaving for the ceremony:

We took the wedding trolley over to the ceremony/reception venue, The Chicago History Museum.  WHAT A SPACE!  It was a beautiful building with a beautiful courtyard, perfect for a wedding.

You could just tell how happy they were…the bride kept flashing her beautiful smile at all of us!

The ceremony was beautiful…short and sweet, but incorporating elements of both of their faiths (the groom is Jewish and the bride is Catholic).  Their rabbi was a real treat.  He was from Russia and spoke with thickly accented English…and at one point in the ceremony, he was relating a story about being in Jamaica, so he spoke with a thickly accented Russian-English-Jamaican accent.  He said to the guests, “This is a once in a lifetime thing you are hearing!”  We all cracked up!

Right before the stomping of the glass!  The groom had a bit of trouble the first time, actually…it was quite amusing.  The glass shot out from the bag and the bride had to put it back in for him to be able to try to stomp it again!

Mazel Tov!

It was a beautiful ceremony and was such a wonderful thing to witness. Stay tuned for Part III coming up tomorrow:  reception details and fun!

  1. Nice pics! It’s a good thing the outdoor ceremony didn’t get rained out!
