From Amy Kaneko...Kelly and Alex -- an attorney and neuroscientist who live in San Francisco -- envisioned a rustic, woodsy wedding. They scoured venues all over the Bay area and settled on a forested B&B in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Their ceremony took place in a clearing in the woods. They stood under a chuppah made of birch branches, gauzy fabric, and trailing vines. Bright wildflowers were tucked in sap jars and planted along the aisle. Afterwards, guests sipped cocktails in the shade of a massive redwood tree, then enjoyed a farm-to-table dinner. After dinner, the groom's relatives performed classic dance hits in the stone ruins of an old barrel cellar.
