    “You like it?” He asked. “You liked having my dick in your mouth?” She blushed at his frank question, but found the bravery to lick her lips and nod. “Yes. I loved it.” “Good. I fucking loved it. I want you in my mouth soon. When you’re ready,” he amended. “Can’t wait to taste you.Read more...

A Jewish Wedding p 3

The bride and groom are now officially married! Mazel Tov! Time to boogie. Wait, hang on… The bride and groom, according to tradition, have fasted the entire day.  They’re starving. Immediately following the ceremony, the two will ensconce themselves in a private room and break their fast. The groom will feed the bride. Two Shomer (guards) will stand outside the door to ensure the privacy of the new wedded couple.

There’s also rumor that the groom deflowers the bride during this time, but I don’t know of anyone who actually did this. After the private time is over, the bride and groom will rejoin the large party, where they are likened to a king and queen. Party guests will endeavor to entertain them with dances, juggling and more.

My husband and I practiced our juggling passes for weeks so we could get up and juggle for our guests. We still sucked, but the photos came out great! The traditional Hora will be danced and the bride and groom lifted on chairs and danced around. A Jewish wedding can be a rocking party.

And that’s really it… Now go off an write your authentic Jewish wedding in your manuscript.  Feel free to ask me any questions.
