Jewish Rituals at Cayman Beach Wedding

Sometimes I have requests from couples to include something which is of particular significance to them in their wedding ceremony. As a Civil Registrar of Marriages I am not tied to using any ceremony, so apart from the three questions I must ask you by law, the wedding ceremony can be as colourful, cultural, or flamboyant as you wish.
  That being said, over the years I have accumulated many different ceremonies, so I normally have a good idea of what you might be looking for. Jewish couples would normally be married under a "chuppah" which represents a home. There are many styles of chuppah available in Cayman, most of them would have some type of fabric over the top representing a roof.

Before the pronouncement, this bride circled her groom seven times as I read the seven blessings of a Jewish wedding ceremony. After the pronouncement the groom smashed a wine glass with his foot amid cheers of Maseltov!
They also had a sand ceremony. Here are the mothers pouring the foundation of their Memory Vase.

The ladies in waiting pose with the bride. I thought the choice of colours and choice of flowers was particularly appropriate.
