La Crosse Waterfront Jewish Wedding | Dan + Michelle

Most weddings, we have a pretty good idea as to what the day will look like. Yes, there are always a few surprises here and there, but nothing comparable to the surprises we experienced at Dan + Michelle’s. :) It wasn’t like anything was unplanned on their part, it’s just that it was the first Jewish wedding we have ever photographed. And oh my, what fun it is to photograph a Jewish wedding! We LOVED being a part of Dan and Michelle’s day; they are such a sweet couple and it was a joy to spend so much time with them.

We tried so hard to cut down the dancing photos to a minimum, but seriously, the Hora alone was nearly 30 minutes. And… we’re pretty convinced there will never be another Hora quite like this one!
