The wedding of Rachel and Alec was a truly spectacular event held at the picturesque Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs on New Year's Eve! The stunning surroundings of the hotel were made even more enchanting by the winter weather, with the lakes frozen over and the mountains covered in a fresh blanket of snow. The scene was nothing short of breathtaking, and provided the perfect backdrop for a magical wedding day.
As the wedding party prepared for the big day, the groom and his groomsmen spent some time having a blast in the hotel's private bowling alley. Meanwhile, Rachel and her bridesmaids were upstairs dancing and getting their makeup done, surrounded by laughter and excitement. The couple's love and joy were palpable, and their families and friends were thrilled to be part of such a special occasion.
The moment Rachel and Alec saw each other for the first time was nothing short of magical. Rachel surprised her husband-to-be on a stunning lawn surrounded by pine trees in front of the hotel. The love and happiness that radiated from the couple was infectious, and their wedding day was truly a celebration of love, friendship, and family.
The ceremony was rich in Jewish traditions. Alec sported a Yamaka and during the ceremony, the couple exchanged vows under a beautifully decorated Chuppah. Following the ceremony, in true Jewish tradition, Alec stepped on a glass as the priest yelled "Mazal Tov!" This symbolizes the fragility of life, and the hope that their marriage will be as strong as the glass is fragile.
As the sun set, the couple and their loved ones danced into the night, celebrating the new year and their marriage. The energy was electric, as the guests joined in on the traditional Hora dance, lifting the couple high into the air on chairs. The music and festivities continued well into the night, with everyone enjoying themselves and the company of one another.
As the clock struck midnight, the couple shared a tender kiss as they rang in the new year as husband and wife. It was a magical moment, surrounded by their closest friends and family. Eventually, they made their way out into the chilly winter air, walking hand in hand while guests greeted them with sparklers, lighting up the night with a flickering orange glow. The couple climbed into their car and drove off into the night as husband and wife. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day, and the start of a new chapter in their lives together.
