I wanted to provide a more visual example of the circle setup.
This photo came from Paul and Rachel's wedding in Tulum. The orange fabric represents a chuppah. Guests play musical insturments and are really a big part of the ceremony.
Here the groom waits inside the circle for the bride (Rachel), escorted by her mother. There are people very close to her, just opening up a gap for the two of them to walk through.
Wide angle shot, showing the blessing of one of the 4 cardinal directions. Guests standing observing.
Here is Tal and Terence at Maroma Spa and resort... Without guests. The circle is clearly outlined with maracas. Each guests is encouraged to make noise and celebrate when the couple goes to each of the 4 cardinal directions.
Guests arriving, maracas line the circle.
Vertical shot... before the Bride and Groom arrive.
Tal and Terence entering. To the left, you can see the bride about to enter the circle. The two people facing the opposite way were her mom and dad. They turn and greeted them when they first arrived in the circle.
Guests celebrate, couple is blessed with smoke from
More guests celebrating as they enter the circle and do a lap around the entire circle... Awesome photo moments!
totally awesome expressions from the guests as they complete the circle.
Thats actually Fred Savage from the Wonder Years in the sunglasses celebrating Tal and Terence's big lap around the circle.
First kiss, blessed with water from best man and made of honor...standing guests look on.
