I loooooove the following set of photographs below.
Why? Because the couple were totally "in the moment."

Quick, quick, focus and shoot.
Moments like these are unscripted, fleeting and hard

Boy, you've gotta be quick and "on it"

Instead, I went for different angles. I slowly moved around the couple to get different variations, all the while being acutely aware that the sun would hit the lens directly and white out

"The end of the public wedding ceremony is marked by the breaking of a glass, usually a thin glass wrapped in a napkin to contain the fragments. It is smashed under foot by the groom after the seven benedictions, or after the rabbi’s address if it follows the benedictions. Some customs placed it after the betrothals, but our western tradition is to perform it at the very end." from Chabad.Org
Typically held in March.
Held on Patriot's Day. Typically near or around the Monday of April 15th.)

The HaMotzi is the blessing said before eating bread and is one of the most frequently said of the Hebrew blessings, used for Shabbat, holidays, and other occasions: Blessed art Thou, LORD our God, King of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth.

It is usually performed to Israeli folk songs, and sometimes to Jewish songs, typically to the music of Hava Nagila.
To start the dance, everybody forms a circle, holding hands, and steps forward toward the right with the left foot, then follows with the right foot. The left foot is then brought back, followed by the right foot. This is done while holding hands and circling together in a fast and cheerful motion to the right. Large groups allow for the creation of several concentric circles.
In the early days, Horah was popular mainly in kibbutzim and small communities. In its pioneer version, the horah was done at a whirling, breakneck pace. Each dancer’s arms were around the shoulders of those flanking him, with the circle spinning so fast that dancers were sometimes lifted off the ground. The dancing often continued for hours.
Later the horah became a must in group dances throughout Israel, and at weddings and other celebrations by Jews in Israel, the United States and Canada. The dance appeared in North America in the early 20th century, well before modern Israeli independence, brought directly from Eastern Europe by Jewish immigrants.
