LRBC Little Known Fact #12

7.12.08

With our beloved grandfathers in mind, Evan and I decided to speak our vows beneath the shelter of a chuppah. The chuppah is a marriage canopy that symbolizes the home the couple will build together. Before the wedding, we asked all of our guests to mail us a piece of fabric; once the swatch was received, the fabric was sewn into a quilt courtesy of Evan's mom, creating our canopy. *Sigh*

Without a doubt this is one of my favorite pieces I will forever cherish from our wedding. Much love and thanks must go out to Julie and all of our family and friends for indulging us in the greatest art project we've ever had the privilege of being part of. XO
