CONGRATS JESS & DAN!!!
This weekend we got to celebrate our favorite couple getting married! It was an absolute BLAST and we had so much fun! Couldn’t be happier for this amazing couple!
Friday night started with a Pre-Wedding S’mores Bonfire! Perfect way to hang out with any out of town guests and just relax before the big day! Dan’s parents gave the happy couple a bottle of wine they purchased in 2001!!!!! They bought it just for this occasion…the day their son would get married. Seriously the sweetest thing ever from such a funny and loving couple! I’m so glad we got up to Marin early so that we could participate and eat a few s’mores!
Chris and Jess have been friends since PA school and we were so excited to be a part of their big day! Here are a few pics with the hubby before the wedding started. I got a lot of compliments on my dress and necklace. The dress was from Kohls and the best $42 I’ve ever spent!
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for the wedding! Just gorgeous! They had their ceremony and reception at Unity In Marin. A really great venue for a wedding. The outdoor courtyard and fountain were beautiful and the perfect spot to tie the knot! The ceremony was pretty short and even included a reading by my hubby! He did great up there! Their vows were so meaningful and had everyone crying. Dan took his very seriously and promised such beautiful things to Jess that just melted my heart! Jess’ vows were equally touching, but had the perfect comedic touch! These two are clearly meant for each other!
After the ceremony our crowd headed straight for the bar!!! It was a lot of fun hanging out with some pretty cool couples.
Top left: Mariam and Scott. We met these two a few years back at the crazy NYE parties we’ve been going too. Scott and Dan have been friends since they were kids. They are HUGE USC fans so naturally we all get along! It’s always so much fun seeing them.
Top right: Justin and Angela. We met these two through Jess. They are the exact couple opposite of Chris and I. Justin (used too) work in higher education and Angela is a PA. They too have joined us in the NYE party and are great to hang out with.
Bottom left: Heather and my hubby. They also met in PA school and were good friends. For some reason their class also happened to have a lot of redheads haha. Heather lives in Colorado Springs now where she works as a PA in family practice. It was fun spending the weekend with her! We’ll make sure to come visit soon!
We were lucky to grab a photo with the bride before she headed down the aisle. Don’t they just make the most adorable couple?!?! Jess looked so stunning!
Here are a few snapshots inside the reception hall. Beautiful table decorations and we got to sit at a table with a bunch of other GAUCHOS!!!! Yay for UCSB! I learned that Jess and her friends lived in San Miguel Hall on the 5th floor JUST LIKE ME, but I lived in the other tower. We also had more mutual friends…such a small, small world.
Couple’s first kiss took place at Honor Bar! Waaahoooo.
Getting some last minute photos with the new Mr. & Mrs. ❤ ❤ ❤ Such a fun filled wedding! So nice to get away, catch up with good friends and celebrate LOVE!
CONGRATS again Jess & Dan! We are beyond happy and excited for you both! We LOVE you and can’t wait until our next adventure together. Thanks for being such amazing friends, we truly feel lucky to have you in our life. Now go enjoy your honeymoon in VIETNAM!!! Can’t wait to see you guys when you get back and hear all about your travels!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well. Let’s do this Monday!
