When I first met with Sarah and Jesse in the spring, it felt like meeting old friends. I know, this sounds like an old, tired cliche, but it’s true. We met for drinks at Austin’s Butterfly Bar. An hour into the meeting, there was an announcement that trivia was about to start. They decided to stay and partake in the trivia, and asked me if I wanted to play, which I wholeheartly said yes. Two hours later, with a few more drinks and a spread of food from the lovely Italian food truck Patrizi’s, we got eighth place out of twenty. This was pretty good for three person squad, especially when using our bonus points terribly. After spending three hours with these two lovely humans, I knew we all got each other.

Fast forward six months later, it was their wedding day in Sonoma. The day was filled with a laid back vibe, where these two people just wanted to show their friends and family a good time. Sarah got ready at a Airbnb by their venue, The Annadel Estate Winery. After visiting the hustle and bustle of San Francisco, it felt so nice and tranquil out in Sonoma. Sarah and Jesse met up for their first look at the winery, where they frolicked in the vineyard. One thing I noticed throughout the day was how present everyone was, I didn’t see anyone on their phones, they were all mindful of the surroundings and took in the whole day. It was seriously such wonderful experience.
