Aleck and Stacey Johnson
May 8, 2004

We're ready to be married! Just before the ceremony, Aleck, Stacey, and some witnesses had to sign the marriage license for the state of New York and the Ketubah (the Jewish marriage contract).

Signing the Documents

THE KETUBAH

ext, Aleck and Stacey signed the Ketubah, as did witnesses Uncle Mickey and Chris

   


Now we're officially married! The rest is literally ceremony

The Ceremony

THE STAGE IS SET


The chuppah is up and ready and the people are waiting patiently 

Here is the quilt that made up the top of the chuppah. Today, this specially made personalized quilt hangs in Stacey and Aleck's house. See it here.

 

ACTION
HERE COMES THE WEDDING PARTY


Cami and Menko are the first to walk down, followed by Adeena and Pieter
Next came Michelle and Steven, then the best man, Chris

      
 

Look! It's the Groom!

And then Aleck, with his parents Joke and Dick

NOW THE BRIDE'S SIDE
    
Allison, as matron of honor, started off the countdown to the bride, followed by David and Lois


Hot on their heels was Samantha as a flower girl. Unfortunately, Emma wasn't feeling up to the task of walking down the aisle and so she sat the ceremony out. Samantha was quite a trooper, though, and did a great job all on her own!

FINALLY, THE BRIDE!

Stacey was the last, but certainly not the least, addition to the chuppah. She was walked down by Karyn and Ron, who were very conscious of not getting tears and snot on her dress. It was much appreciated.

T
hey walked her down the aisle three-fourths of the way and then departed to stand under the chuppah. Aleck came to get Stacey from the aisle and lead her the rest of the way. This is symbolic of the two of them walking together into what is representing their new home.


HERE WE ARE-- ALL OF US!

KIDDUSH

After a welcome from the rabbi and a blessing of the chuppah, there was the recitation of the Kiddush, followed by a sip of wine.

RINGS

Fulfilling his duty as best man, Chris gets the rings ready


Aleck gives Stacey a ring (left), and then vice versa.
An explanation of why we are placing the rings on each other's index fingers can be found in our program.

THE GLASS AND THE KISS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aleck breaks the glass with one solid stomp, and then they are allowed to kiss.
Mazel Tov!

What does the breaking glass signify? Where is that glass now?

 

 


M
ission accomplished! Taking their first steps as a married couple-- straight to the privacy of the yichud room to decompress, breathe deeply, eat a little dinner, and gear up for the reception.
