Southern California Jewish wedding: Rosemary + Micah

August 16, 2010

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!
