A Hawaiian Chuppah Wedding

S&J were married in a beautiful ceremony incorporating traditions from their Hawaiian and Jewish backgrounds, receptively. The chuppah was decorated with hundreds of paper cranes lovingly folded by the bride's family (hundreds more adorned the reception, for a total of the traditional 1,001 cranes), and instead of bouquets, the bridesmaids wore leis composed of locally grown flowers and herbs, a nod to the couple's shared love of the culinary arts. Calla lilies, a favorite flower from the bride's childhood gardens in Hawaii, were also prominent throughout the flower arrangements. It was an honor to be a part of such a beautiful and heartfelt celebration. Congratulations, S&J!
