I haven’t known Judith for long, but Sam has been a friend mine for over a decade. I couldn’t have been happier to celebrate with them and our mutual friends over the long wekeend. Plus, I’d been to Jewish weddings before, complete with chuppah and ketubah, but none were quite as involved or featuring as many of the traditional ceremonies as this one. I learned a lot, and even got to serve as a witness, which was an honor.
The camp itself was gorgeous. Apart from the wedding activities themselves, one of my favorite parts of the weekend was running through the grounds. The lake, woods, and fields were pastoral, quiet, interrupted only by reminders of children’s summer camp. Cabins, boat docks, ropes courses, and even the requisite barn, complete with hay loft. So cute!
