The Triple S Ranch in Calistoga is a magical and magnificent place to have a wedding.  It is a mash up of new and old, and the antiques and charm of this place is out of this world.  It is fitting that Sangita and Daniel had their Jewish/ Indian wedding here under a 200 year old walnut tree surrounded by their friends and family.  Sangita and Daniel took parts of their individual traditions and melded them together into something totally their own.  Their friends and family came in from around the globe to celebrate with them.  This was such a fun wedding.

When I first met with Nicole and Josh, they told me that their Rabbi had said to them, “this is not your wedding… you should do what other people want you to do.”  I have to admit that I was sort of taken aback by this.  Sometimes it seems like the whole wedding industry tells couples the exact opposite – it is their special day and that they should do whatever they want.  Josh and Nicole told me that after his Rabbi had told them this, that their wedding planning got much easier.  When I met the Rabbi, I asked him what he had meant.  With a jovial laugh and warm smile, he replied that a wedding is not just about the couple getting married.  It is an event that brings the community together in support of the couple and as a part of this, the couple should be open to the input of their community (he said this with much more elegance of course).

Here are some pics.  Enjoy.
