Evelyn and Patrick threw the sort of wedding I hope mine will be like – full of friends and family partying down in your honor!  I really do hope my parents can hit the dance floor as hard as Evelyn’s when our wedding rolls around.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bishop with such amazing moves!

We began the day at the The Grand Hotel, a charming destination that was perfect for everyone to get ready while getting some good shots in.  It was fun going from the guys’ hotel room, with its leisurely tie-knotting and sports-watching, to the ladies’ room, which was a flurry of hair product-applying and accessory-donning.  We then headed over to St. Thomas Episcopal Church for the ceremony.  It was a great mix of more traditional church architecture with modern twists.  We closed the evening with a reception Tarragon Restaurant in downtown Sunnyvale.  Their banquet hall was huge, and offered a great dance floor and beautiful balcony.

I must add a thank you to my fiancée Ainslie, who faithfully served as my second photographer.  She got amazing shots, always full of ideas, and reliably keeps me from looking stupid – couldn’t have done it without her!

And a thank you to Evelyn and Patrick of course, for being generous enough to have me on their special day.  Wish you both the best!
