Lucky 7/7/07 is here!
The Knot, a wedding site, says that on any given Saturday in July there are typically 12,000 weddings taking place in the US. But on 7/7/07 that number has more than tripled to an amazing 38,000! This could possibly make it the most popular wedding day ever.
We’ve been looking forward to our 7/7/07 wedding ever since we met Joyce and Christian for their Engagement Session back in March. This couple was so much fun and we felt a connected to them from the start.
On their big day two weekends ago we came to meet them at a small boutique hotel on the Embarcadero waterfront in SF. The girls were putting on finishing touches and Joyce was slipping into her gorgeous silk dress. One floor down the groomsmen were having beer and anxiously trying to tame their unruly ties. When the couple saw each other in the lobby of their hotel it was a truly emotional moment.
Joyce and Christian’s ceremony and reception was held at Terra SF – a downtown art and event gallery. The venue’s great feel was made all the better with the beautiful paintings all around. This day felt intimate even with many, many guests and the reason for this was perhaps said best during the ceremony: “Ultimately, friends are the family we choose.”
Mike and I both LOVED their unique reception – only a few tables and chairs were provided while most people walked around and mingled amongst delicious food stations. There was a live band and much dancing and laughing to finish off the night. Joyce and Christian’s wedding style was truly unique.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful day with us! We hope you’re having an absolute blast on your honeymoon!!
