I met Chris and Emi for the first time on their wedding day, as I do with many of my clients, chatting by phone, Skype and email in the months leading up to the big day. I suspect that they found the wedding planning a little overwhelming, although the day ran like clockwork.
This was a somewhat small wedding, with under forty guests, many flying in from California and Europe, and even a couple from Asia. There was also a small but vocal Maine contingent, as Chris was raised in Lewiston.
There was a fun metropolitan California gay vibe overlaid on a down-home rustic Maine sensibility. It was incredible how these two divergent cultures melded for the weekend. After a day of playing very competitive gamers, the crew partied into the night.
