Rustic Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

The couple built a traditional Jewish chuppah from four fruit trees they purchased locally and plan to replant in the spring. "Each tree was knitter bombed up the trunk," the bride says. At the top, a muslin canopy—hand-painted with the words "All You Need Is Love" by the bride's mother—was hung.

The couple chose not to have a traditional bridal party. Instead, they asked their closest friends and family to read seven blessings, known as the sheva brachot, to the crowd of 107 guests. "Instead of the the traditional blessings, we selected seven seeds that we want to plant for our marriage and journey ahead, individually and as a family," Liza says.
