Chuppah

The Jewish wedding ceremony is done underneath a Chuppah or a wedding canopy. This is generally made of a tallit or a tapestry with the corners attached to four poles. This represents the roof of the home the newlyweds will be living in together. However, the Chuppah has no walls to it, as walls would make the canopy a place of seclusion, which would then represent the room where the marriage was consummated, something done in private. The Chuppah is also used to separate the bride and groom from the rest of the people and create a small place of serenity for the two to marry in.
