Ilyse & Max - The Sephardic Temple of Cedarhurst Wedding

Imbued with tradition, filled with fun, and overflowing with style—Max and Ilyse’s wedding festivities were a beautiful sight and we had a blast being part of their big day! The whole wedding party was a striking sight to behold in their black attire and Max and Ilyse looked so happy and carefree as they took photos with their favorite people. We made sure to feature Ilyse’s gorgeous bouquet as well because the wrapping on this bouquet contained a special touch—it was actually a piece of cloth taken from Ilyse’s mother’s own wedding veil!

We loved watching the Jewish wedding traditions come to life and seeing the joy on the guests’ faces as the reception continued into the late hours of the night. The spread of refreshments was immense, colorful, fun, and eclectic as it featured snacks served in cocktail glasses, sushi, ice cream sandwiches, fruit, Italian cuisine, and innumerable offerings from the artistry that was the main buffet.

In addition to the delicately crafted morsels of yummy food, the liveliness of the reception, and the overall grandeur of the event, there is no doubt that sometimes the smallest details are the most meaningful ones. One such detail was nestled on Ilyse’s earlobes all day; the earrings she wore were of particular importance because they originally belonged to her Grandmother Dolores and were also worn by Ilyse’s mother, Gail, on her own wedding day. We love seeing these treasures that are passed down through generations!

As the night drew to a close and the smiles mellowed from their six o’clock wattage to their sleepier (but equally ecstatic) nighttime energy, we were so grateful that we got to share Ilyse and Max’s special day with them. It was a wild night filled with dancing, push-up competitions, and many generations of love and heritage. Congratulations to Ilyse and Max!
