When it comes to the ceremony décor of your wedding, the pièce de résistance will likely be the altar – after all, that is where you and your future spouse will recite your vows and become married. For couples exchanging vows in a Jewish ceremony, the service will take place under a chuppah. The chuppah is a wedding canopy with four open sides that symbolizes the new home the couple will create.
