Eric & Barbara met us via a web conference. They were planning their Houston wedding to combine a traditional Jewish ceremony and a somewhat non-traditional reception. Barbara’s hair was adorned by a pearl necklace made by a friend who told them when Eric purchased it for her “you can wear this on your wedding day”….and she did. This, it turns out, was the 1st piece of jewelry Eric had ever given her. Their vows…..which Barbara touched up in the car on the way to Congregation Emmanuel, were brief and heartfelt under the Groom’s family chuppa. After the breaking of the glass all headed off to the Milford House where Chef Emile, a Bride’s family friend, made a wonderful cajun meal of their favorites….red beans and rice, jambalaya, shrimp etouffee and more. There was a truly amazing moment when the Mother’s of both the Bride & Groom stood on stage to sing “Sunrise, Sunset” from “Fiddler on the roof”. Tears were in many an eye at that. For those night owls there was a relaxed after party at their favorite bar McElroy’s out on the patio. Eric & Barbara wedsite.
