I love when couples add personal touches to their wedding details. Rachel and Ryan love animals, particularly bunnies. The bunny cufflinks signified their tribute to their beloved 6 rabbits and their efforts of saving rabbits that have been sent to shelters. And, in lieu of wedding favors they gave to SaveABunny and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. They had a complete vegetarian meal catered by Asilomar, from springs rolls, to polenta stacks.
Rachel’s gorgeous embroidered shoes were her “something blue” item. She chose Bells of Ireland in the arrangements in honor of her Irish father. Her gown was designed by Sally Crew. They chose Asilomar because it is a great location as well as being a state park with preservation objectives — a deer and pelican even joined in for part of the ceremony! Lastly, they liked that the reception hall was designed by Julia Morgan, one of the first female architects.
