Eric Carle Museum Sunset Ceremony

Before kicking the evening’s festivities into high gear, Lisa and Ezra gathered their family members and friends together at sunset for a Jewish wedding ceremony in the orchard behind the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts. “It was beautifully lit by the lights decorating the orchard and a paper lantern that we hung beneath the chuppah,” Lisa says. The chuppah was lovingly made by the couple’s family members and friends and became a tangible representation of their two lives coming together as one. “We asked a number of our crafty friends and family members to knit or crochet a 12-inch square, which Ezra’s mom then sewed together,” Lisa says. “There was love and care in every detail of our wedding; and we said our vows beneath a blanket made by the people who love us most in the world.”
