25 Jun Deer Park Villa Wedding | Marin, CA |Monica and Greg
Monica and Greg are true citizens of the world – travelers and adventurers with connections throughout (at least) 4 continents. They met while both in Sidney, Australia (where neither of them are from), working in sustainable energy. For their wedding, they decided on another move – to traverse the pond and give it a go in Marin, California (where Monica’s family lives). This, of course, was very lucky for me :).
On the big day, their friends and family flew in from all over the world to celebrate with them. Folks flew in from Australia, the UK, even South Africa, and Monica and Greg were excited to see the different pieces of their lives come together in one place. The festivities took place at the lovely Deer Park Villa in Fairfax, where towering redwoods provided a welcome reprieve from the summer heat. Monica and Greg made an effort to include the special people in their lives in the events of the day: Monica’s brother officiated the ceremony, and both mothers did a reading. During dinner, their fathers and friends shared emotional and sometimes funny toasts, which told of the incredible paths each of them walked which led them to this day.
After the delicious dinner, of course, there was dancing. And after dancing, everyone lingered until late – making s’mores around the fire pits, drinking drinks, meeting and chatting and catching up. It was a perfect way for Monica and Greg to not only marry each other, but also marry their separate worlds into one.
Congratulations, Monica and Greg! May you never lose your sense of adventure :D.
