Felix and Bella were married on a beautiful October evening at Scott’s Garden in Walnut Creek, California. The ceremony was personal and thoughtful, lovingly performed by Felix’s stepfather, Tom. Each part of the evening was carefully prepared — from the beautiful and romantic chuppah, made of tulle and white lights, to the handmade guest book. Both families speak Russian and English, and so the toasts were spoken in a loving combination of the two. A few of the grandparents and parents had traveled all the way from Russia for the ceremony, and it was a touching and joy-filled reunion.
