Not sure who knows it and who doesnt, but I am not only a wedding photographer, I happen to also be a bride-to-be! So this post is dedicated to some of my finds, frustrations, joys, to-do listing of my new found wedding planning! 🙂 So I never thought planning a wedding would be so difficult! I actually still wonder, is it difficult, or is my mom just making it difficult? Either way… for as much as I love, love, love my mother… she is, a typical Jewish mom and, like most jewish moms… she likes to control! So for every step of the way thus far… there has been a little spat about something! Through this planning process Im SURE there will be many fights, and tears… but Im sure the outcome will be just perfect for both of us.So I titled this post Oy Vey for a reason. The reason being, it is my turn to find a Rabbi. I want to find a Rabbi sooner rather then later since we getting married in approx. 6 months and since Morgan isnt Jewish and I am, he has made the decision to have a jewish-esk ceremony. This being said, I want to find the Rabbi (or Cantor) that will fit our needs and wants best ~ and also put my mom at ease. So my search started at theknot.com where I asked some other lovely brides for their advice and their choices. I found one person, and after talking with him I got a good feeling.. but then I emailed him to ask a question and he never wrote me back… so I called him, asked my question, got the answer.. he said he would email me a few dates and times to meet… never heard from him! So I feel, he is out! Then I decided that the other person I am to meet with today.. I didnt get a good or bad feeling from him, but he never really took the time to speak with me either~ so Im not madly in love with him~ he might have to be out too!So I decided.. the knot is not the ONLY place to get answers to my question… I can always use Google! So I googled interfaith rabbi, northern nj (since everything is a little cheaper in the jers) and then I did interfaith rabbi, nyc. These are some of the links I checked out and so far I have gotten a few responses ~ through these 2 sites, I was emailed a response with 3-4 rabbi’s each
So the Rabbi search will continue and I will hopefully have one picked out by next week! Does anyone else have any good suggestions for me?
