Jewish Same Sex wedding at Congregation Beth Or || Cinde & Carly

It’s not every day for Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen performs a same-sex marriage. In fact, this is the first time they ever had. On June 9, 2018 they proudly held the marriage ceremony and reception for Cinde and Carly and their beautiful blended family of 3 kids! And what a Beautiful day it was. Despite Cinde being convinced it was going to snow on her wedding day (it’s June lol!) – the sky was blue and the sun was out. This Jewish same sex wedding at Congregation Beth Or was one for the books for sure! We were surrounded by so much love and compassion the entire day. And a very Happy Pride month to all of our LGBTQ clients, friends and family (because it’s all one in the same to us!)

Remember their Lambertville, NJ engagement session?

Cinde and Carly met on (just like Al and I) so we had an instant bond. Carly proposed on the bridge in New Hope, literally standing above the waters between Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We were so excited to capture this surprise proposal that began their engagement session, which included their beautiful children. We had such a great time with these two love birds and their kids during their engagement session.

So we knew when their wedding day finally rolled around, it was going to be all the more special. We really like to build authentic and lasting relationships with our couples. We truly believe everyone is part of the BG Family and we are there whenever you need us. It also makes even more excited to capture all the wedding day beauty and fun because we feel like we’re celebrating with you and not just working. And this is truly what this day was. The photos with the couple are some of my favorites of all time. You can see so much love and sweetness between Cinde and Carly. And how adorable were the kids! There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when all 5 of them were under the huppah together promising.

We are so blessed to be chosen to capture this super special day. We fully support the rights of same sex couples and marriage equality. Could it have been more perfect than to have them tie the knot during Pride month? You will have to keep scrolling to look at their photos and see their AMAZING peek-a-boo rainbow cake! So cool!

    I love the pic of the two of you, zoomed out, kissing, that shows the long trains of your gowns with the building (the shul?) In the background.

    Those dresses are fab!

    The one of the kids is a close second.

    Looks like Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen is a great location for a wedding! My favorite photo was the one of the three kids-loved the pout on the ring bearer!

    I already loved the dress shots, then I saw that you got to photograph TWO of them! That lace is phenomenal. And a rainbow wedding cake is the perfect way to celebrate this beautiful day. Happy Congregation Beth Or chose to be a part.

    Beautiful dresses! BG Productions really captured this LGBTQ Philadelphia wedding beautifully! I have quite a few favs but I just love the wide shot of the couple and the recessional shot is a wonderful moment.
