From the way they met, to the way Thomas proposed, to the gorgeous, vintage wedding complete with an antique Roles Royce these two fit together perfectly and damn can they boogie down!
When we walked into Emily’s room at the Hotel Monaco, I fell in love with her all over again because of course she was wearing a sassy, silk, cheetah print robe and proceeded to drink champagne from the bottle…my kind of girl. And can we talk about her dress?!? Hand beaded and stunning, and yes she went with a creamy beige…love it! We also had the pleasure of meeting Flabongo (pronounced Fla-bong-GO) which is obviously a hollow, pink, plastic flamingo that you drink beer from and as you can see in the story told below, it managed to spend the majority of it’s day with us.
The boys were quite dapper in the snazzy suits, with green socks and ties that coordinated (great job Thomas!) and the added bonus was their stunner shades. Things were a little quieter when we got to their room but it wasn’t long before the bottle of Bullet was gone,the energy level was up and they were posing for their rock star “album cover” unfortunately I can’t remember what their band name was.
But all Flabongo’s aside, it was gorgeous San Francisco day when best friends stood before all the people they love most in the world and made a promise to one another. A promise to love and cherish each other and each moment because they know that they are the lucky ones, lucky enough to have found one another and smart enough to hold on.
I think the quote Thomas’s brother read during his speech sums it up best:
Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Congratulations from the bottom of my heart
