Jack + Noa: Joyfully Wed!

The always delightful, hilarious, thoughtful and sweet couple, Jack + Noa, married at the Piedmont Community Hall in Oakland.  The couple designed and set up most of the wedding themselves, with help from friends and family on the day.

Jack and Noa received their guests separately, separated by an open field and a few tall bushes.

Jack entertained guests in one part of the park and signed the marriage license, while a few in his family made l’chayims in the couple’s honor.

Noa’s and Jack’s six siblings held the chuppah poles, and their parents stood by.

And there was dancing.  Hours and hours of dancing.

Noa and Jack danced separately at first, he with the men, and she with the women.

Friends and family danced to entertain the bride and groom, and to raise the souls of the couple’s future children.

Everyone with a baby rushed to where Jack and Noa were sitting on the dance floor, and placed their babies on the bride and groom’s laps.
