I hope J doesn’t mind, but I couldn’t start this week of writing without mentioning her beautiful day.
The setting could not have been more beautiful or the weather more perfect. All of J’s DIY projects looked effortless and added just the right amount of charm. Simple, classic, beautiful – just like the bride.
Foreign Cinema in San Francisco’s Mission district combine T’s love of movies and J’s love of food. As I sat their eating maybe the best pesto pasta I’ve had, sneaking bites of my friends delicious bavette steak while watching the black and white classic The Apartment on mute projected onto the wall above us all, I couldn’t help feel a part of something special and inspiring.
J and her husband’s attention to detail over the past year of planning – though stressful at times – created an experience that was not only enjoyable for their guests from start to finish, but one that made us all feel like a special part of their union. That without us, they wouldn’t be where they are. And that is what a wedding is all about. Two people from two separate worlds coming together to start their own and appreciating everything that brought them to this new place. I felt lucky to be a part of such a beautiful chapter in their lives.
I wish the new Mrs. and her Mr. all the luck in the world, though I know they don’t need it.
