“Emerald & Lace; Tradition Meets magic!”
Newport Carnegie Hall: Cincinnati, OH
On a sun filled yet blustery day the wind sailed friends and family to the magical union of Nicole and Josh. From the moment, they entered the door to taking their seats in anticipation of the ceremony starting all could feel the spell of love that surrounded and flowed through the venue. The whole day was filled with enchantments, beloved traditions, spell casting, dancing, laughter and honor for the beautiful couple and all they held dear. It was truly a mesmerizing and memorable day for all.
The blustery weather was perfectly integrated into the couple’s theme where Hogwarts, Jewish Tradition, the Navy, and art all came together for their wedding day. Hogwarts holds a very special place in both Nicole’s and Josh’s hearts as it was where Josh proposed so it isn’t surprising that its magical presence flowed through their wedding day. Hogwarts mementos, art, and apparel were sprinkled through the space accompanied by and paired with beautiful water colored décor created by the bride to show off her love for painting and art which had brought the couple together. That love for art also glowed from the beautiful Tree of Wisdom Ketubah created by Debra Band for just this occasion. The words of the Ketubah are surrounded in gorgeous colors and details representing the season and cycle of life all culminating in A Love for All Seasons.
The Ketubah and Wedding Ceremony could not have been officiated by anyone better than Rabbi Julie Schwartz who was the very first female active duty Jewish Rabbi in the US Navy. Both Nicole and Josh had served in the Navy and Rabbi Schwartz understood the challenges and changes they both had faced while serving and that it had become an integral part of who they are much like their Jewish Heritage they were brought up in and held so dear.
The day, as magical as it was with all their friends and family there, was a little less than complete for Nicole as her mother had passed away just a year before. Her presence and memory was not lacking. Nicole put together a special chair adorned in her mother’s family Tartan, family crest pin and photos of them together to show her spirit, love and presence was with them. This culminating with the love of all who attended, there was no doubt that the love they had for each other and all their guests wasn’t merely an enchantment is was undeniably real and flowed through their entire beings.
Josh and Nicole’s wedding was truly a unique experience that I/ Abagail was honored to be part of it. Seeing as Nicole is also a very dear friend I/ Abagail was more than happy to take the job when Nicole asked me/ her to help co- coordinate the couple’s big day with the planner from Cincinnati to ensure it was as magical as the couple had dreamed it to be. Per my/her experience in the film production world I/ she knew when flipping a room every minute counts, so I/she delegated and kept everyone on task while resolving issues that came up. Where there wasn’t a designation for certain décor items I/she quickly tapped into my/her interior design background and found the best and most aesthetic solution for the setting. Every detail for the day had been meticulously planned and I/Abagail made sure each and every one of the details that held meaning for the couple were seen and felt by all who attended. The protection spell I/Abagail cast over the couple and their timeless venue was tested more than once and came through it completely intact each time.
