A Wedding!

The Happy Couple, originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

On sunday we travelled up to Mendocino for Coco and Jeff's wedding. Most of the celebrants had been staying up there for three days worth of festivities! It was my first full on Jewish wedding and I was really impressed with all the beautiful traditions--culminating in the couple being hoisted aloft on chairs and danced around.
The ceremony itself was outdoors on the beautiful Mendocino Headlands and it was one of those mostly overcast and very cool days on the ocean. Me and the girls came away with sunburned faces!
During the reception, the klezmer band began playing an old Andrew's Sisters song that had been featured in my swing dance class with India. Sure enough, India came and grabbed me and we danced like crazy. Fun.
It was a beautiful wedding. The kind that feels true and real.
