The Bedecken

Immediately following the signing of the Ketubah by two witnesses for the bride and groom comes the Bedeken. The Bedeken is a ritual based on a tradition which requires that the groom see the bride before the ceremony and cover her face with the veil. This custom dates back to the Biblical episode in which Jacob was deceived into marrying Leah instead of his chosen bride, Rachel, because she was hidden behind the veil. Ron was brought before Jennifer for the veiling, ensuring her identity. This of course became a humurous event which took place before the main ceremony and was attended by immediate family and close friends.
