I know the blog has been a bit silent recently, but I promise there’s a good reason! I just returned home from the most incredible week of my life: my wedding celebration in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! We chose to get married at the Villa Cielito, in Chileno Bay (halfway between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo). It was truly an incredible experience to see everything finally come together after months of intense planning. To stand there on the beach, under the Cabo sun, with my wife, in front of our community of family and friends, was a transformative and defining moment. Our awesome planner Patricia, and Lazy Gourmet Catering made the planning seamless and made sure everyone filled their bellies with tasty food. We were fortunate to have Rabbi Ian Adler conduct an incredibly meaningful ceremony for us and our guests. So, after feeling what it’s like to plan a wedding, and to be a groom, I can honestly say I’ve walked a mile in my couples’ shoes. I had always objectively understood the flow of a wedding day – as an observer – but the emotion and intensity I experienced are impossible to put into words. So I’ll stop trying. Of course I took care to arrange for professional photography and videography for our day, but this amazing photograph was taken at the wedding reception by my dear friend Igor, (it’s easy to be fooled, but he’s not a photographer – he’s a San Francisco Bay Area real estate agent). Anyways, I’m back home – rested, recharged, inspired, and…married! Off to document what promises to be a unique and gorgeous San Francisco wedding tomorrow! It feels good to be home, at the opening of this new chapter in my life. Come back to the blog soon. It’s going to be busy!
Another update! Our wedding video is now available from Alexander Kohn on his IQ Videography Blog. He did such a beautiful job capturing our vows and telling the story of the day. We are very fortunate to have had the IQ team document it all!
