It was a packed house on Sunday, October 27th for the wedding of Emily Brady and Sholom Sandalow. The wedding took place at the historic Wilder Mansion in Elmhurst, IL. The wedding got underway with the pre-ceremony Kabbalat Panim and Tish, which were held on the Mansion’s second level. The Key Tov Orchestra provided the music, starting with a four-piece ensemble.

After all the marriage documents were signed, the horn players led the Bedeken, which danced the groom over to greet his bride. Guests then made their way out to the beautiful Conservatory Gardens for the outdoor Chupah ceremony. Upon conclusion of the marriage service, guests exclaimed “Mazel Tov” and danced Emily and Sholom out from the Chupah for a very lively recessional. Guests made their way back inside the Wilder Mansion for the cocktail hour followed by the reception. The music was led by Key Tov Orchestra’s DJ, Robert Nicpon. The dancing kicked off with an energetic and spirited Jewish Hora dance, in which Emily and Sholom were raised in chairs and danced with their family and friends. The dancing continued later in the evening, with Emily and Sholom’s first dance, followed by the Mezinka/Krenzl Dance and selected Israeli tunes. photo 3
