I still remember the day Carolyn first texted me photos while she was trying on wedding dresses. I remember the overwhelming sense of love and thoughtfulness I felt when she sent the first care package while I was pregnant (a box full of my favorite treats, #cheezits&sourpatchkids), and the second package right before Phoenix was born (the cutest fox romper and matching burp cloths, #deathbycuteness), and then a box of cookies 2 weeks before her wedding (from her favorite bakery in Soho, #isthisreallife?).
For 18 months, we have emailed back and forth about wedding planning and life. Last weekend, I finally got to hug these guys in REAL LIFE. And their wedding was everything we dreamed it to be - Carolyn's dress was a masterpiece, their families practically adopted me as their own, their vows were beautifully written, their celebration mode was on point, and their love was ridiculously photogenic.
I could blubber on forever about how much I have come to adore this pair. But instead, I invite you to relive their wedding day me with...
Ever wondered what it would be like to attend a wedding in a sauna? I hadn't. But I now know nonetheless.
Despite high temperatures and humidity unfamiliar to most California natives, Cesar and Carly threw the fanciest party her parents' backyard will ever see.
Geoff & Linden kicked off my 9th wedding season. NINE. That kind of blows my mind.
And with the dream team that they assembled to bring their wedding to life, I'm not at all surprised that it was the PERFECT day.
You can tell a lot about a person by how they react to a rainy forecast on the day they're supposed to have engagement photos taken.
Cesar & Carly couldn't care less - they were stoked just to be together (and hang out with lil old me) rain or shine.
They are most definitely my kind of people :)
