I remember like it was yesterday, because it was. (not really)  I went outside to enjoy the sunshine, walk my dog, and check my email. It was a beautiful morning; crisp and clean…and not a cloud in the sky. When I opened my email, I saw an email titled “Palm Springs Elopement”…and I knew. Glory had arrived.  Suddenly the sun’s rays encompassed my body, and flames shot out of my eyes, painting a circle of fire around me…the sky was torn open with a pair of divine hands, and all the angels of Heaven descended upon the earth, their trumpets ablaze with triumphant music. Out of the heavenly abyss I heard a voice as deep as eternity proclaim to me, “Thou art welcome in the Kingdom of Heaven.  And I thought to myself, “And I haven’t even opened the email, yet!” So I smashed my mouse onto the email and accidentally punched through the  plastic as though it were made of wet kleenex…and I read the most beautiful inquiry of ever.

Fast forward a few months..

Jeff and I are on our way out to meet Tom & Jenn on the most happy of days. We punch danced with instantaneous vigor the entire car ride.
Once we met up with Tom and Jenn the real fun began; it was much like having seven ninja goddesses surrounding us on all sides giving us high fives.
Wedding time. A tree sprouted out of the ground and grew to three hundred feet in height right before our very eyes just to get married under, nothing out of the ordinary when you’re as awesome as Tom and Jenn.
Todd had us in tears as he lead the couple into marriage. Such a perfect moment.

Tom. Jenn. Thank you. Thank you for gifting us with the extraordinary honor of tagging along and be a part of your lives. You make us love what we do.

Todd. Thank you for making us look like sissy la-las with your gentle words of marriage. You are a good man.

Got ready at The Parker.
Few photos at The Ace.
Became Husband and Wife at Secret Desert Spot by The OC Wedding Guy.
Now stop crying, play the music, scroll down, and see what I mean.

Ps. As if these guys aren’t cool enough, Tom is also a musical genius (This is his band) and he wrote the song for their video. Frick ya, Tom. Frick ya.
