Wedding in between trips

Before leaving for Switzerland and Prague, THB and DB managed to squeeze in a wedding.

The highlights:

Our very nice room at Gaige House, Glen Ellen

There's a small "courtyard" between the bathroom and bedroom

We take in the highlights of Healdsburg before the wedding: 

The Shed, a combo market, bistro, and restaurant with scattered exotic food-related and gardening items for sale

What THB bought

Closed...permanently? An omen?

THB and DB have her work at the beach

A version of our piece (this one is smaller in size and total pieces)

Our lunch spot with S&J (a fortuitous meet-up): lots of small, shared plates. Very good!

The wedding at Relais du Soleil (THB and DB have been here before on an Oakland Museum day trip):

The groom and huppah holders + rabbi, awaiting the bride

THB loved the non-traditional dress!

Even more participants have squeezed under the huppah

Her family

Bride, groom and bride's brother (THB has known two of the three since they were infants); the bride is the author of The Defiant, a Young Adult book, and THB recommends it even if you are not a YA

His family

The wedding couple's table (note the most important part of the setting, on the right)

Taken in bright sun; by the time we ate around 6:15, the temp was just right

We're friends of the bride's parents

The wedding food is excellent. No surprise: the groom owns Wise Sons deli in the Mission (highly recommended)

Not on the seating list for our table, he dines with us anyway

DB with the proud father, MQ, a friend for a lifetime: their parents lived across the street from each other when they were babies, then relo'd within a few blocks of each other in WLA
(MQ is also THB's bridge partner of many years)

Three languages and a port-a-loo!
