Father of Bride Officiating Ceremony

The bride's father obliged the couple’s wishes and officiated the nuptials. “Having my dad marry me and Justin was the best decision we made, as it was an extremely personal ceremony,” expresses Kelly, noting they also had a rabbi incorporate Jewish elements into the ceremony to honor Justin’s religion. “Standing up under the chuppah with Justin and my dad was a surreal experience… you could feel the love in the room.”
