The groom said “This is really meaningful. That tallit originally belonged to my grandfather’s (who appears in this photo) grandfather who was once pelted with rocks as he ran with it underground in Ukraine to secretly have his Bat Mitzvah. Now, on my wedding day, I stroll down the aisle getting nothing but love and merriment.”

The bride and groom wrote letters to each other to be read by the officiate during the ceremony. Upon reading the grooms, which was about how much the bride meant to him, she broke down.
