Greg and Serin were married last weekend, on Clearwater Beach, FL. A beautiful west coast sunset, and beautiful cool weather were on hand for a magnificent wedding ceremony and family gathering. I really enjoyed working with The Hilton hotel, and Joanie, the Wedding coordinator was amazingly helpful! The coming together of Greg and Serin’s families were so interesting, as Greg’s heritage is of Moroccan descent, Sephardic Jews, and Serin’s family is Presbyterian, but they do such an amazing job blending their lives, and their relationship is so pure, that the differences between them are simple reminders of what they appreciate in each other.
Greg’s father recited the Sheva Brachot (Seven Blessings) in Hebrew, while I read the English Humanistic version of the blessings. As the sun was setting, and I was singing the Priestly Blessing, and I saw the joy in Greg and Serin’s face, I was once again reminded that G0d was certainly present at their wedding, and would be with them through every step of their married lives together.
Best of luck, Greg & Serin!
