Special wedding to take place during Arts Festival

H&H Jewels has a booth set up every year at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival, in fact, it's one of the first booths up already and the festival doesn't start until Saturday! But this year, they have something special going on and they wanted to be all ready. On Valentine's Day, this Saturday, at 3 pm, there will be a special wedding, right at the Arts Festival in the H&H booth.

Partners for almost 18 years, Elsie and Christina Ruiz, moms of 4-year-old daughter Meredith (shown here), will finally marry now that same-sex marriage is legal in Florida. But, it’s not the usual justice of the peace ceremony you see on the news. since H&H Jewels will be hosting the nuptials in a beautiful setting in a tent on South Bayshore Drive.  A lavish reception will follow inside the jewelry store showroom on Main Highway. All this is being provided gratis to the couple – and will include stunning wedding bands by Furrer Jacot, delicious food by Sara Sharpe Catering, music, champagne, flowers by The Blonde Tulip, and, of course, hair and make-up for both brides – this provided by the other H, across the street neighbor Hair by Hisham. 

H&H Jewels celebrates the freedom to marry. The jeweler has adopted a motto as a result of the new law – H&H is about ‘his and hers,’ ‘his and his,’ and ‘hers and hers.’ “We are honored and humbled that Elsie and Christina are letting us be a part of their special day,” said H Bredemeier. “After 18 years of being together, this occasion is huge and special beyond measure.”
