Southern California Jewish wedding: Rosemary + Micah

Categories   Real Weddings

The creatively-charged details of Rosemary and Micah’s big day, along with the supreme talents of photog Erin Hearts Court, make this wedding one event you can’t help but adore.  We’re amazed at the amount of intricately crafted little tidbits, including handmade pinwheels (gorgeous, for real), ceramic bouquet tags and fly-fishing embellished boutonnieres, all inspired by their color palette of corals, peaches, golds and blues – the essence of California in the springtime!

The ceremony took place in the Little Bridges music hall at Pomona College, the tiny Southern California liberal arts college that both bride and groom both attended, followed by a glowing reception in the campus ballroom, built in the 1930s.  So perfect.

The ring-on-the-sweet photo is cuter than words, not to mention that exquisite bouquet, complete with ceramic tags made by the bride!

Rosemary handknit this gorgeous chuppah for their ceremony using Micah’s grandmother’s vintage linen napkins.  Micah got into the DIY-action and made the chuppah poles – truly a labor of love that will live on forever.  So, so romantic.

We’re totally impressed by Rosmary, who cranked her creativity to the max and crafted all the paper goods including signage, cocktail flags and programs.  She also made paper lanterns using using scanned prints of matching fabric found in the LA garment district.  Amazing!

This is such a fantastic idea for notes from guests – and how fun it must have been to read them!

If you’re like us, you may need to stop for a sec to take in this beautiful shot.  The uber-talented bride handmade (of course) these gorgeous pinwheels – so imaginative and playful!  Not to mention, that dessert table…. full of cakes, pies and about a gajillion varieties of cookie, made by the groom’s cousin.

Rosemary, who has a love for pottery, also made some delightful vases that were mixed in with mason jars to make these lavishly sweet centerpieces.

Looks like a match made in heaven.  Congrats Rosemary and Micah, on your marriage and on a beautiful event!

colleen @inspiredtoshare on Aug 17, 2010

What does that "We Wish You" sign say??

JessieBelle on Aug 20, 2010

Gah! Love this! :-) Question: Does anyone know if the cards that say "so and so walked into a bar, the bartender says..." say the same thing? or are there different fill in the blanks on each one? SUCH A CUTE IDEA! <3

Rosemary on Aug 26, 2010

Thanks for such a lovely feature! I wanted to give a shout-out to all of the folks who helped make this perfect day happen, including my family & friends (it really takes a village to DIY your wedding), and to Shar & her team for making it all look so pretty on the day of. JessieBelle - We had a bunch of different prompts for our cards. Most were fairly traditional (although open to interpretation), like "always remember…," "you know you’re in love when…" and "in a marriage…" We threw a few funny ones in too that said "don’t ever…" and the one pictured here, "rosemary and micah walk into a bar. bartender says “…" We got a lot of touching and funny comments back on them and they're going to make for a great guest book! Lots of our friends played "telephone" with them at the reception, starting some advice then passing it around for others to complete the thought. :) And Colleen, the instructions on the "we wish you" sign are a play on the prompts on the cards for our guest book. They say something like "We wish you... would leave us a message on one of the cards with whatever wisdom, advice, or input you'd like to share. After the wedding, we'll compile these along with your photobooth pictures to create a guest book of fun wedding memories!" We're still working on putting the guest book together (and printing out the photobooth pics), but I think it's going to be a lovely memento of the day for us!

What a great wedding. The little notes for guests to write on are so fun and original.

Sarah on Oct 4, 2010

That photo of the two of them in the prayer shawl is one of the most moving I've ever seen. Bravo on it all. It's beautiful.
