Barbara and Max's Wedding, July 6, 2003
For now, because we're still unpacking a forest of boxes in our new home and trying to get a little settled here, I'll only share a couple of images. In this one, we hold our champagne glasses aloft as Liam Mullan gives our wedding toast.
Here we are (below) in front of Beloved Baba, right where the ceremony had just taken place. We stood on a small "gabbeh", the carpets woven by Persian nomads whose story is told in the beautiful film, "Gabbeh". Barbara and I fell in love with the film and the carpets, and felt it appropriate to weave our own stories together on one of these carpets, each one of which tells a story in woven symbols.

as much of the world seems to know. Come to think of it, we look a little
like the cast of "Soap" that was pictured before each episode!
below was the front of our wedding invitation. The four words were in
gold on the real invitations, though. The words are concepts symbolizing
the 4 pillars of the chuppah, the Jewish wedding canopy--or at
least that's what we heard the rabbi say at a recent wedding we attended
Oh, yes: our wedding was very small, held in the private residence of some friends. The only people present who weren't local were our two mothers. We felt many of you, from around the country and globe, with us.
