Warning: Never Separate a Wedding Reception from a Chuppah

March 21, 2010 – 8:55 pm9 Comments

At many weddings, you will find that there is a considerable gap, both temporal and geographic, between the chuppahceremony and the wedding reception.  Typically, the reason cited for implementing this gap is that the couple and their family like to have photos taken – many photos.  In fact, sometimes the gap is so long that it seems implausible that such a substantial amount of time is required for photography.   We suspect that this large gap is a relic from earlier days.  Prior to modern photography, we assume a sketch artist was commonplace at weddings, and the creation of a portrait of the bride and groom, as well as their families, took several hours.

Submitted for your education, the case of Motti and Carly Blum.   They were just a nice young couple trying to have a few photos taken at a scenic Melbourne location, following their chuppah. Nothing out of the ordinary here; it could be any couple in Australia – your sister or cousin perhaps.  We are sure that after witnessing the tsures experienced by this lovely couple, you too will become an advocate for having the chuppah and the wedding ceremony with as little temporal and geographic displacement as possible.
