Ramona & Justin [Ramsey's at the Club Wedding]

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

I love when couples laugh together. Not just laughs because most people with any slight amount of humor can appreciate a witty joke or obvious punchline…. no, I mean a laugh that one person brings out of another person that is spontaneous and down right uncontrollable. I am not an expert in marriage. Not by a long shot. Personally I know life is full of such up and downs that finding someone you can laugh with to navigate it all makes the journey, undoubtedly, a better one.

The time I’ve spent with Ramona and Justin makes me think they’re fortunate to have this type of laughter in their lives. It’s not just because Justin is ridiculously witty and hilarious but he seems to know how to make Romona laugh and also takes pride in it. They are so natural and fun together it is no wonder their wedding was such a beautiful day filled with both emotional tears and heartfelt laughter.

Ramsey’s at the Club in Toluca Lake was a great venue and Betty Lang of Vanda Events did such a great job coordinating everything.

Megan & Harrison [Wente Vineyards, Livermore CA]

Happy almost 1 year anniversary to Megan & Harrison! Even though this wedding was a year ago, I can still hear Megan’s laugh and feel the warm welcome from both Megan and Harrison’s wonderful families. Often weddings are more than just the marriage of two people, but really the union of two families and that is what I remember most about this day. That and the blue velvet cake… because really, what self respecting Cal fan would serve red velvet at his wedding? I’m sure it was an easy decision to make for both bride and groom since Gauchos are also partial to blue and gold  :)

Megan & Harrison,

Thank you for having me be a part of such a special day. I hope this past year has been nothing but a honeymoon!

Caitlyn & Chris [San Francisco City Hall- Weekday Wedding]

Monday, October 10th, 2011

I’ve known Caitlyn for eleven years. The summer of 2000 I was eagerly anticipating my new adventures at UCSB. When I met Caitlyn, I knew it was going to be a great year. After hearing horror stories of people and their freshman roommates, I was put at ease the moment I met Caitlyn. We were both from northern California and just enough the same and  different to get along well and be great roommates. We ended up rooming together 3 out of the next 4 years. I was overjoyed when she told me she was getting married  to the amazingly sweet Chris and ecstatic that they wanted me to take photos!

Caitlyn & Chris,

I’m so happy for the two of you. Thank for letting me be there with your family… or uh, I mean random people that just happened to be touring City Hall. :) I love you guys and can’t wait to see more of you in Southern Cali.

xo,
Umi
