Sheva Brachot of Adam and Chaya Dova Neril

Last week I had the privilege of attending the Sheva Brachot of my fellow Walnut Creek oleh, and frequent travel buddy, Adam. Two weeks ago, I went to his wedding, but unfortunately, forgot my digital film. Besides, his father drafted me into video recording the wedding by camcorder, so I had my hands full in any event. Anyway, if I manage to get a hold of wedding pictures, I'll post those too, but for now, here's the sheva brachot:

Sheva brachot (seven blessings) is a period after a Jewish wedding which lasts seven days, during which special blessings are added to the "Grace after the Meal" when in the presence of the newlyweds.
