The wedding of Rosetta Star and Jack Baun at LAAFF

Rosetta Star (founder of Rosetta’s Kitchen), and Jack Baun (of Jack’s Boxes) got married at LAAFF yesterday, following a circus parade into the festival. They’ll be leaving on a six-month sabbatical, traveling with kids and dogs through South America. Bon voyage!
