California (Pt.5): Wedding Ceremonies
The first was a Native-American ceremony took place in a round house on the nearby reservation. The guests were driven by schoolbus up an impossibly narrow and windy road, through the primordial redwood forest, to the top of the mountain. It was was a deeply moving ritual, but no photographs were allowed.
Then, everyone loaded onto the schoolbus and headed back down the mountain to the Annapolis Winery for a civil ceremony presided over by David's aunt, our own Judge Judy. The ceremony included a traditional Japanese saki ritual and vows written and composed by the parties.
It was beautiful, happy day.
Congratulations David and Michiko!
Next: Let's Party!
