Karen Heilig & Ivan Ciment Married at Wyndham Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida, 9 November 2003
This page contains photos of the wedding plus links to Karen & Ivan’s Wedding Song Hit Single, the 9 minute highlight video and other special commemorative items.
Now for the 9 minute highlight reel.
In order to better understand the sequence of events in the video, it might be helpful to view the Wedding Program (available in PDF file) that was distributed at the wedding. It is good reading in any event in order to be familiar with the aspects of a wedding done in the Orthodox Jewish tradition and has a beautiful color graphic of the Ketubah, the marriage contract which was made especially for the wedding. Also available on PDF is the Weekend Schedule of Events staged for family and friends — It’s not just a wedding, it’s an Event!
