It Was 7 Years Ago Today

 
It Was 7 Years Ago Today | At 11:11am sharp — not! At the (now defunct) Artful Lodger (a place we miss dearly, especially Ede and Fred). We were thinking about wearing leis, and Rich actually did. Also, Rich wanted us to go barefoot, but the concept of pedicures hadn’t yet entered my consciousness.

It Was 7 Years Ago Today | Rich wrote, designed, and inked our Ketubah by hand (all in Hebrew), which is an amazing undertaking in its own right. But if you consider that brainiac Rich could only muster a C in high-school drafting, it’s even more impressive. (Photo by Donna Terek)

Not only would I marry my wonderful husband all over again, but we’d have the exact same wedding (except we’d include the close friends we’ve made since then).

They were booked months before I walked in the door. I literally begged.

Peter did us a huge favor; this project wasn't really worthy of his talents.

About the photographer: When we found Donna Terek in 2000, the high-quality, journalistic-style of wedding photography so popular today was only practiced by a few photographers in the area. I think we interviewed almost a dozen photographers before learning about Donna. She shot film with two camera bodies (one with color film and the other with b+w), and she shot over 30 rolls! She even set up her lights to add an extra glow in the big room where we set up the chuppah. We absolutely love how she captured that magical day!

Happy Anniversary to the Happy Couple!!!

How have we not discussed this … Bill and I were also married 7 years ago except on 9/23. We have you beat by one day! :)

#1 Dawn

Ha! That’s so cool! Happy Anniversary to you two, too!

#2 Myra

Happy anniversary! I think when I met you, you were still in the glow of that wedding, which is why you threw yourself so enthusiastically into helping us plan ours (six years on Oct. 6) — which I, too, would do exactly the same, with the same guy and everything.

#3 MJ

Congratulations! Your pictures are awesome. We only wish we had a photographer that specialized. Absolutely nothing existed in terms of cutting-edge wedding photography (it will be 25 years for us tomorrow!). Even tho I expressly demanded no double-exposures, there were a few sprinkled in with the proofs.

Mazel tov!

Mazel tov for 25 years, Karen!!!

Ah yes, that really takes me back. As I recall, 1982 was the year that the “slip-the-bride-a-few-double-exposures-against-her-explicit-instructions” technique really caught on.

#5 Myra

Congrats Myra! I love the pics and the invitation! What does the word eleni mean above the two of you? (Of course it reminds me of my name.)

#6 eleni

BOORAH!

And happy anniversary, you two kids. :-)

#7 Lou

Hi Eleni,

The word that looks like “eleni” is actually the Hebrew word for rejoice. Those are Hebrew letters written in cursive form. (We should have explained this — thanks for asking!)

#8 Myra

Happy Anniversary! (belatedly, of course)
