From photographer Carlie: Elizheva did an amazing job creating all of the handmade details that brought so much soul to this wedding, from the handmade huppah that she designed from ribbons given by her guests, to the hand knit yamakas and custom programs, to the purple petticoat that she added to the inside of her dress and the purple glitter that she added to the soles of her shoes! Robert is the architect behind Fink Architecture, so he fell in love with Costanoa for it’s beautiful eco design and it’s functionality in housing many of their guests for a weekend of celebrations. Elizheva and Robert’s entire wedding was inspired by the Jewish faith, the wildflowers of California and all shades of purple, and these inspirations could be seen and felt through every part of the day. The morning began with a women’s gathering where Elizheva’s closest ladies sang and danced and gave their blessings to the bride, while the men gathered amid the eucalyptus tress and shared their words of wisdom over shots of whiskey. Then they had their amazing klesmer band Kugelplex lead the men to meet the women where their custom ketubah was signed and the veiling ceremony performed.
