When St. Louis couple Tori and Jared started planning their Jewish wedding, their top priority was to make it a party. And that’s exactly what they did, from their post-Friday night dinner dance party, to the surprise New Orleans horn line parading through the aisle after the groom smashed the glass, to the all-night dancing that went until 2 AM!
In the bride’s words, “I just wanted our closest friends and family to have the best night ever” – and judging by the joyous photos from Verneda Lemons, we can safely say they did!
We’re obsessed with Tori and Jared’s custom ketubah by Smashing The Glass Recommended Vendor NitiArtsKetubah, crafted to include important elements of the couple’s lives from their dog, Sadie, to the NY Mets, St. Louis Blues, the fountain where they got engaged, palm trees for their love of travel, and more.
There’s so much to say about this wonderful wedding – but we’ll leave it to Tori, who looked simply smashing in her gown by Israeli designer Neta Dover, to take it from here!
How We Met
Tori, the bride: We met in New York City on St. Patrick’s Day at a club. Probably my first and last time at a club! After that, we dated a few years in the city and then I dragged him to my hometown of St. Louis, MO, where we now have our dog, Sadie. I knew he was a keeper when he said he would leave bagels and sushi and move to St.Louis, MO.
