Town Square

Structures rise for Woodside wedding

Original post made on Sep 22, 2013

The wild creatures that normally inhabit the grassy pasture and scattered trees in the 500 block of Mountain Home Road in Woodside may wonder what's going on. Two redwood boardwalks are winding their way into the property, crews have been seen hauling in construction materials and, in the distance, structural framing is rising from the ground. It's all to accommodate a wedding on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Nothing like having so much money that you'd opt to destroy countless redwood trees to build a temporary structure, then tear it down. There are countless beautiful wineries, parks and mansions that could have been rented. But the wickedly rich must have their way. P.s. I give the couple 3 years before they are divorced (when your life is so superficial that you'd blow a few million on a temporary structure for your wedding, the odds say your time together will be temporary too).

So are the hosts responsible for paying for the firemen/women on hand? Or, does that cost only go to the host when there's an African-American POTUS in town? Oh, wait, sorry - that's in Atherton!!

I hope the wedding is lovely & that the elements of the temporary construction can be upcycled.

Congratulations to the happy couple - I'm sure we can read about the nuptials next week.

Good luck to cyclists AND drivers in the area next weekend - they'll need it.

Oh, good, there will be shuttles. It's pretty easy to figure out who the b&g are. I hope the shuttling goes safely!
