Some of my favorite weddings were from the summer and here is a selection of some highlight photos from a wedding at the Seattle Tennis Club in August. I really love witnessing the dancing of the Hora. It often makes for such great photos as these two which I will start off this blog post with.

It is traditional at Jewish weddings to include a section of Hebrew music and dancing known as a ‘Hora’ which comprises a medley of popular Jewish tunes, including Hava Nagila (‘come let us be glad’), and Siman Tov U Mazleltov (‘may good luck come to us’).

 

 

During this section of the dancing it’s also traditional for the guests to dance together in a big circle, with the newly married couple hoisted into the air on chairs .

Laura has her turn being hoisted into the air.

Wedding at The Seattle Tennis Club. First Look

Here is the groom getting the first look of his bride to be from all angles at the entrance to the Seattle Tennis Club on a extremely rare rainy Sunday in mid August. What a beautiful dress.

The bride and groom’s spirits remained high all day despite the fact that the wedding which was supposed to take place outside on the grass, got moved indoors due to the constant rain. We were hoping it would blow away but it never did. The chance of a sunny day for their date was supposed to be 99.7%.

    Love the tight shot of father and daughter dancing. I don’t know what it is, but daughters and fathers at weddings seem to have a magical connection.
