We love cultural weddings and all of the beautiful traditions involved in the ceremonies. Capturing these special moments is such a wonderful gift for each couple, which is why Jay Farrell Photography loves creating these memories through a documentary, journalistic photographic style. Jay Farrell Photography had a great opportunity to capture the wedding day of James and Erinne at the West End Synagogue in Nashville, Tennessee. James and Erinne had a traditional Jewish wedding full of beautiful moments. Each photo that Jay Farrell Photography captured is a gorgeous display of each present moment in its entirety.
Before the ceremony, James and Erinne signed the Ketubah, which is Jewish marriage contract and prenuptial that contains the responsibilities that the bride and groom have to each other as a married couple. The Ketubah is signed by the bride and groom separately in different rooms before the wedding ceremony.
Erinne and James had a lovely ceremony that was simple but elegant leading to a delicious dinner at Nashville legend, Loveless Cafe, in place of a traditional wedding reception. After James and Erinne greeted their wedding guests, they went to a different chapel for some intimate moments of relaxation. Jay Farrell Photography loved capturing these moments with a pronounced “film noir” mood.
The wedding day was a loving celebration full of cultural traditions and loving family and friends, and Jay Farrell Photography had a wonderful time photographing his first Jewish wedding! “They wanted a wedding photographer who could tell the story of their day without taking over, so we were meant to be paired up to work together. That’s the trademark of a documentary wedding photographer.”
