Damian has been one of our closest friends for years. These photos do a pretty good job of showcasing his personality...but you really should meet him in person. He's even more awesome in real life. He is one of those people that has a way of making everyone he's around feel important. He's one of the most creative, intelligent people I know but makes me feel like what I share & think is worthwhile and interesting. It's a gift. Naturally, feeling the way we do, our expectations were set pretty high when it came to Meili. Within 5mins of meeting her, I couldn't stop staring. She was too good to be true. The perfect match for our friend. Happy, artistic, affable, loves food, super down to earth, has had amazing life experience, sparkly eyes, stunningly beautiful in all the most important ways (and in the least important ways...babe town!). It is safe to say I fell head over heels in love with her. Right after Damian did.
Their wedding day was crazy fun. Waffles for breakfast, tacos for dinner, cakes and pies made by all their friends AND a reception with a Ferris wheel, carousel & a spinny-makes-you-want-to-hurl-ride. I will do anything for a good shot but due to extreme motion sickness I did spend a good 10mins after I made that photo with my head between my knees. Worth it.
Now I am making plans for camping trips, beach house getaways, holidays and backyard BBQ's with my new favorite family.
Congratulations again and again. Love you both so much.
