We have mentioned before on this blog that we are lucky enough to work in an industry that makes us privy to some of the most candid and emotional moments in people's lives. What we haven't touched on as much is that sometimes in the process of working for a year or more with our couples (and their families) we kinda fall for them. And you know what? At that point it's rather sad to think that you might not see them again. Happily this is one wedding that we converted client to friend. We gladly report that we have enjoyed a number of drinks (and even some dancing) with Mia since their Bella Luna Farms wedding. For Mia and Jordan, it was all about the food, family and friends. They decided to use the farm's expanse of meticulously manicured grounds and buildings to set up food stations, encouraging their guests to wander, dine al fresco, and compete at a few lawn games. Their friends and family from all over the west coast grabbed Veraci pizza from the farm's outdoor woodfire oven, sipped wine under the bistro lights, petted the surprisingly social goats, sampled food whipped up by Lisa Dupar Catering (including produce and cheese from the farm), slurped up Molly Moon ice cream, posed for the Polaroid photo booth, took a gander at guests' pics via the live Tagboard photo feed and danced under the stars. What a day it was!
We are so happy for you Mia and Jordan! Wishing you many adventures near and far, though I vote for a whisky together in Ireland next!
