Most bizarre chuppah?

The LA Times is running an amusing/horrifying story on the wild extravagance of Persian weddings in California, with many of the examples coming from the Jewish Persian community, which has a significant presence in Los Angeles.

I particularly liked the following detail:

Rabbi Zvi Dershowitz... recently attended a wedding in Las Vegas with 900 guests. At another wedding, he was shocked to find spinning helicopter-like propellers over the chuppa, a traditionally plain structure under which vows are exchanged.

Surely there are easier ways to keep the bride cool? Haven't they heard of airconditioning?
