They had an elegant Jewish wedding with lots of traditions in Megeve and also had a private ski day in the Alps for the two of them just before! Let’s hear from Haute Wedding for more…gettinfg ready • Images by Sylvain Bouzatbride getting into boots • Images by Sylvain Bouzat gown details • Images by Sylvain BouzatThis German bride found her perfect match with a handsome Jewish French man that she had met around the office in London. His charm and easy to love personality had her head over heels in no time. shawls • Images by Sylvain Bouzat stunning couple • Images by Sylvain Bouzat alaga hotel • Images by Sylvain Bouzat wedding ceremony views megeve • Images by Sylvain BouzatThe couple spent the weekend skiing the famous mountainside of the Alps, going off-piste for a few photos, of course.

The delicate lace was absolutely stunningly made and complimented her long tulle skirt as she floated down the Alpine wedding aisle. i do destination megeve • Images by Sylvain BouzatFor the ceremony, they made sure to incorporate some Jewish traditions into their destination wedding. It’s customary for Jewish weddings for the bride to stand on the left of the rabbi, which is right for the guests, and then walk around him three times in an anti-clockwise direction. So, we had to leave a little extra room under the arch for this tradition. generations • Images by Sylvain BouzatDuring the ceremony, there are often many blessings from the rabbi wishing good fortune on not only the couple but their families. Then there’s a blessing over the wine, where you pass the wine to the bride’s mother who does not drink from the cup but instead passes it to the groom to drink. Caroline then passes it back to her mother who gives it back to the rabbi. They repeat this with every member of the family to symbolize the acceptance of the family and the bond they will share. couple under alter • Images by Sylvain Bouzat couple jewish • Images by Sylvain Bouzat

We love how family oriented the ceremony is! Before the big kiss, there are blessings in both Hebrew and English. Then Melvin breaks the glass to symbolize the joining as one. Mazel Tov! Now the celebration begins!
