I am not sure if my grandparents had a stile chupa, but my grandfather was
hiding upstairs while he and my grandmother got married in Russia. He was
drafted into the army and was awol, planning to leave Russia. Which they
did with my grandfather dressed as a woman! But back to the wedding,
everyone was afraid to do anything festive as that may have brought the
police into the house and arrested my grandfather. Luckily they both made
it to Boston, Ma.
