Knollwood Country Club Wedding

Congratulations to Rebecca and Carlos on their wedding on the Sun Deck of the Knollwood Country Club in West Bloomfield. The couple chose to have their ceremony under a beautiful canopy or chuppah. This tradition is a symbol of hospitality and affirms the reality that marriage is the establishment of the home, an island of sanity and serenity.
The bridesmaids wore vibrant purple dresses and processed to the Finale from Handel’s Watermusic while Rebecca entered to Pachelbel’s Canon. Gorgeous bouquets of purple and yellow roses with white hydrangeas were placed along the aisle and woven into the chuppah.
Officiants Miriam Jerris and Deacon Brian Carroll did a wonderful job explaining the different traditions of the Jewish and Latino heritages that were incorporated into the ceremony. The use of the Lasso or chord is a traditional Latino marriage custom in which the cord is placed around the necks of the bride and groom in the form of a figure eight to represent their unity and desire to be together eternally.
A common symbol at Jewish weddings, the breaking of the glass is a customary conclusion to the wedding ceremony. It represents a turning point in the lives of Rebecca and Carlos, a commitment to begin their lives together as husband and wife. The couple, who have studied abroad and share a love of sports, concluded their evening with a reception in the country club. Best wishes as they begin their life together.
