yichud

Lit. "oneness." Immediately following the wedding ceremony, the wedding couple often disappear to a private place for yichud. In this seclusion they affirm the unity they have achieved in their hearts and souls under the chuppah. This special time allows them to share their first moments alone as partners before the celebration begins.
