Wedding Inspiration: A Sparkling Redwood Ceremony for Two SF Hippies
Is there anything in the world as magical as a wedding ceremony that takes place in the middle of the redwoods?
In a stunning ode to the surrounding trees as well as the bright succulents in their SF apartment, newlyweds Mirra and Adrian modeled their wedding cake and décor after nature's bounty. The bride sparkled in a gold dress, rather than the traditional white, as she walked down a dirt aisle to the flower-adorned altar.
As a tribute to their multicultural backgrounds, the nuptials had elements of traditional English, Hebrew, and Spanish ceremonies. The Jewish traditions of dancing the hora, breaking the glass, and lifting the newlyweds up on chairs were an integral part of the night. For the reception, the couple's friends Paul and Emily of Rhythm Rangellers provided festive music—because who doesn’t like a good fiddle?
