Surprise wedding!

So many stories to share, but here are a few photos from the best wedding EVER. It was the marriage of two of my dearest friends who have been engaged for 14 years. 14 years!

Originally, it was going to be a 50th birthday bash in Santa Barbara, but when it looked like everyone was coming from near and far (and the Supreme Court ruling came through) it turned into the perfect time for a wedding.

We all kept the big secret (miraculous that 75 of us pulled this off!) and when Jacques arrived, we were all in masks.I have never been more excited (or nervous!) for a wedding… and couldn’t have been more touched by the magic day that unfolded.

The greatest pleasure for me was witnessing the utter glee on my friend Chris’s face… to pull off such an elaborate surprise and to have it so gracefully received was the most amazing thing to witness. The love was so big, so awesome, so bright, …. it was almost blinding.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    I had the honor of being part of a secret, surprise wedding recently too! My friend proposed to his lady and then brought her to a park with sweeping views of Philadelphia. As they popped champagne with their families (who were in town under the guise of his med school graduation), her bridal party came out and informed her she’d be getting married in mere hours. She was ecstatic and 100+ guests were treated to a magical lovefest. Check out the photographer’s blog post:

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for novice blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
