WEDDING: At Coco Palms Restaurant in Pomona, CA


This weekend's third wedding was at the Coco Palms Restaurant, in a setting complete with waterfalls (and exotic birds in the entryway of the building, but i will restrain myself from complaining about their enclosure...)

The couple chose to include traditions from several different backgrounds and cultures:
  • Unity candle - So difficult to keep lit in the very windy outdoor setting!
  • Sharing wine - A tradition rich with the symbolism of drinking from the same cup, and as a tribute to abundance and good fortune.
  • Breaking of the glass - A symbol of love's fragility, and the irrevocable nature of the vows the couple makes to each other at their wedding.
And, after it was all over, they were driven away in a vintage automobile, driven by a man in a zoot suit!
