Descanso Gardens Wedding
Descanso Gardens in La Canada is known for creating glorious settings for many different occasions and it did not disappoint for the nuptials of Rebecca and her husband she lovingly refers to as “R.P.” on her famous blog. The couple chose the location after many memorable trips there with their son “Mr. Man” over the years. Rebecca decided on the historic Boddy House which was originally the residence for the founder of the gardens. The architecture is “glamorous but homey” as she puts it and made for the perfect relaxed atmosphere for family and guests to celebrate.
The ceremony was held on the lawn of the house and R.P.’s older children, his brother, and Rebecca’s sister carried the chuppah in this traditional Jewish wedding. R.P.’s father is luckily a Rabbi so they were blessed to have him lead the ceremony. As an added sign of good things to come, the father completed their nuptials in exactly 18 minutes, which is a very meaningful number in Judaism!
The couple’s son “Mr. Man” as they call him and R.P.’s two teen children stole the show at the wedding with Mr. Man walking Rebecca down the aisle (cuteness overload!) and his two older children carrying the traditional chuppah. Both proved to be very special for the couple as it truly was a family affair.
After the ceremony guests danced the night away on the fantastic black and white checkered floor in the vertical gardens and as Rebecca puts it, with some of their “favorite California wines flowing endlessly.” She credits Deanna Nash, their wedding planner, for putting together this glorious event in just 3 months, all while making it seems fun and stress-free.
This wedding was a great example of simple elegant beauty, trusting your planners to provide the experience of a lifetime, the sanctity of traditions, and the joining of two great families into one. May their days be filled with joy and endless adventures together!
