Plexiglass Acrylic Chuppah Mandap Mundap Gazebo on the Beach
OK - we have made some interesting things to go in interesting places. When one of our event planner customers based in San Jose del Cabo asked us to build an acrylic Mundap (or Mandap) or acrylic CHUPPA for Jewish wedding ceremonies.... we said "How Big do you want it?"
They said "Oh - maybe 8 ft high and 10ft wide" and "we want the top struts to be open, so we can put fresh flowers in" and a few other requests.
And a few more requests.... make sure YOU click on these pictures for a full size view of these clear Plexiglass gazebos. (I use the term gazebo loosely of course)
We said "You realize that not only do we have to build this, but we have to ship this 1200 miles to you - without breaking - and you have to be able to assemble and disassemble this many times!" And with our "When Others Can't - We Can" attitude, we figured out the "how" and put this together. It breaks down into 8 pcs and has adjustable sliders for assembly on uneven ground.
Nice. A bit of Jewish tradition : The wedding ceremony takes place under the chuppah (canopy), a symbol of the home that the new couple will build together. It is open on all sides, just as Abraham and Sarah had their tent open all sides to welcome people in unconditional hospitality. I think that's pretty cool.
Update June 2009: here's a link to the company that makes these Acrylic Plexiglass Chuppa Mandaps.
