Natalie and Tal were supposed to be married in Israel in a big Jewish Wedding Celebration with their friends and family. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, they postponed their celebration to next year. But, they still wanted to have their legal marriage ceremony, so they decided to elope in Jackson Hole! Boy, am I glad they did!
These two have been THE SWEETEST through the whole process. Natalie wrote of their experience working together, “We honestly could not be happier with Janelle. She was totally professional and awesome, and made my very shy husband feel comfortable enough to come out of his shell for pictures. What I love most is she totally was able to capture our spirits and personalities in her pictures. Also, she is so well priced! Seriously cannot recommend her enough!!”
This was my first Jewish wedding, and it was simply incredible!! Judd Grossman performed their wedding ceremony. Natalie and Tal’s ceremony included prayers, the seven blessings, wine drinking, smashing of the glass, multiple songs, and romance. There was such a sweet spirit present during their ceremony. Heaven was truly blessing their union as they vowed to forever be true to one another. Overall, their ceremony was tender, lively, and the epitome of what a celebration should be.
At the end of the day, Natalie and Tal got in the water all the way up to their chests. Tal is from the Mediterranean, so the water was cold to him! It felt so refreshing and ‘warm’ to the rest of us! In my experience, it seems like each elopement and wedding starts with the bride and groom having a desire to keep their wedding clothes clean from everything. Near the end of their celebration, they are more interested in epic pictures! Then they are more willing to do whatever I believe will achieve that goal. I am so thrilled that Natalie and Tal decided to get into the water! The pictures I shot from those wet moments are breathtaking!
