Jumping The Broom

"Jumping the broom," as demonstrated here, is a popular and growing custom in African American weddings and represents the joining of two families.  Jumping the broom can be performed at the reception, just after the bridal party enters the reception area, but is most commonly performed during the ceremony after the minister pronounces the couple man and wife.  As you can see by this photo of Tory and Christina, jumping the broom can be a jubilant moment performed with flair... the perfect way to begin the recessional back down the aisle. 

Photographed at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes with Atlanta photographer and friend, Erik Humpheries.
