Here is a fun Jewish Ramekins Culinary School wedding for you today. Ramekins is a cute little venue in Sonoma with 6 suites, an outside patio, and inside reception space. The food they serve is excellent, and there are lots of places for all your guests to stay close by. Overall it is a pretty sweet spot for an all in one type of wedding in Sonoma.
Mara and Josh are those people who you meet and feel an instant connection with. They are fun and easy to talk to. Their wedding vows were personal, heartfelt, and unique. The jovial, thoughtful, and sincere Rabbi Philip Ohriner officiated. The last wedding I worked on with him, he told the couple, “this is not your day, do what everyone else wants you to do,” which when elaborated on made a lot of sense. To be in Rabbi Ohriner’s presence is to be surrounded by joy, and when combined with Mara and Josh and their wonderful families, it was a winning combination of stellar people.
When it came time for speeches, Mara’s father started what seemed might be one of those well intended, but long winded and slightly embarrassing speeches. It very quickly became clear that he knew what he was doing. By time he finished, the entire room was standing and applauding wildly. There were so many excellent moments at this wedding. Stoked to have been able to join Mara, Josh, and their families on their day of celebration.
