From fighting comes… love? Yes. Diego first spoke to Becky with the soundtrack of a bar fight playing behind them. Irony makes for the best stories! It just goes to show, you can meet your love anywhere.
Even though the location of their meeting was rambunctious, their wedding day felt intimate and calm, thanks to the presence of family and friends. Their families helped take part in the planning process and they included special family members wherever they could.
Becky’s ring that was used during the ceremony belonged to her grandmother and the Kiddush cup was borrowed from her parents. Her mom made the chuppah and the piece with her hebrew name was the original that Becky’s mother had created for her confirmation. Becky’s crafty mom created a matching piece for Diego and they also added a Celtic and a Spanish piece to represent both of their heritages. The couple was inspired to use tree branches as their chuppah posts after reading about it in Anita Diamante’s book The New Jewish Wedding which was recommended to them by their rabbi. The tallit was her dad’s from his bar mitzvah, accomplishing the goal of utilizing Jewish ceremony symbols that had rich history. They also purchased a beautiful parents’ ketubah to give to Becky’s parents at their rehearsal dinner as a thank you for all they had done.
