Jodi + Josh – St Regis Hotel Ortodox Jewish Wedding Pictures, Miami

This story is about a girl who made it through her wedding day despite her brush with death. For shortly after her husband broke the glass under the huppa and whisked her on to the floor for her first dance, she was rushed to the hospital without ever cutting her cake. Her only wish was that everyone enjoyed the night as if her and her husband were there.  You can read her experience below. Jodi you are our hero!

The night of my wedding I was rushed through the trauma Bay of Jackson Memorial Hospital. As I was wheeled past my own wedding, hearing the amazing voices of our band “Project Soul” and knowing my guests were having a blast, I lay on the stretcher of what we now know to be “my near death experience.” It was a miracle that I made it as long as I did.

So here I was setting out to plan a magical beach side wedding for the two of us and our guests in our new hometown of Miami. Apparently, I had succeeded by leaps and bounds as people truly felt the warmth and hominess we were trying to create. I was asked by multiple people if I would plan their weddings. This for me was priceless.

mmmm
While everything truly was magnificent and I got to marry my best friend at the end of it all, it certainly wasn’t the way I had imagined it all in my head.
Throughout the day of my wedding I was in agony. I made an attempt to get my hair and make-up done, but instead was relegated to the bedroom for most of the day. The hours ticked by as I missed our first look and family photos. It almost came down to missing my wedding as well. Otto and Priscilla handled the situation with grace and professionalism.  I couldn’t have asked for anything more. This was certainly not an ideal situation to have our bride unable to take any photos leading up to the wedding, but in full Haring Photography style, they pulled it off with smiles on their faces ready for whatever was thrown at them.

I managed to will myself out of bed 30 minutes before the wedding to do a very brief first look overlooking the ocean. As much pain as I was in, I got through it, along with the Bedeken, the ceremony, our supposedly “Epic” first dance and even the Horah. We have all these extraordinary ‘imperfect’ moments captured, thanks to an amazing team of wedding professionals. As I said in my wedding vows to my best friend and husband Josh, “Life is never perfect, but it is imperfectly perfect when I have you!”
