Gabby and Clive met at work in the SF Bay Area. A friendship began by chatting across their desks. Soon that friendship developed into something more when they had their first date hiking in the hills of Marin County. Gabby and Clive love outdoor activities and wine tasting in Sonoma which led them to choose the wine country destination for their wedding. These two are both so genuine and thoughtful with the people around them. From our first conversation, they shared with me the importance of family and how they wanted their wedding day to feel like home. They achieved this feeling so easily by including family in important ceremonial traditions, Clive spending a quiet pre-ceremony moment with his parents as they gave him a blessing, Gabby’s brother stepping in for her late father to walk her down the aisle and share a first dance with her and the delicious party favors of custom mixed spices representing their different heritages. I feel so lucky to have met and worked with this couple and I know their will have a beautiful life together.
