when i received an inquiry from lindsay’s bridesmaid, she filled me in on all of the details of the wedding day and the couple. the destination wedding. the northstar mountaintop. the concert theme. the superhero/giant’s fan theme. the overall expectation of awesomeness. both music engineers. and the fact that lindsay + sean are the friends that bring friends together. a kind couple that bounce hospitable energy off one another and have the rare trait of making everyone around them feel special.
once i met lindsay + sean, i knew that we would be a great match for one another in the client-couple world. i left the initial meeting hoping that they would get back to me in the next couple days about whether or not they felt the same way. within an hour, i heard from mr. vora expressing their excitement to work with me.
months later, we [all 200 of us] met on the mountaintop in north lake tahoe to witness the marriage of these two snowboarding-concert-attending-music-composing-lovebirds. as tim and i descended on the gondola after the wedding, all we could talk about is how ONLY two amazing people could get 200 people to come to a destination wedding 7,000+ ft. above sea level. not only were the guests so in love with these two but their impact on the lives of those in attendance was astounding. not only did their wedding party toast to their friendship, but they also noted sean’s sacrificial dedication to research for the rare genetic disorder he has faced his whole life. it was such a sweet + tender moment when sean’s dad shared that he treasured the memories of going with sean to his appointments at UCSF but one day lindsay replaced him and was there with sean every step of the way. such a story of love and dedication between the two of them. definitely a moment tim and i got choked up on.
mr. + mrs vora, thank you for letting me travel up to north lake tahoe and up the gondola to your special mountaintop. thank you for setting the example of kindness and friendship. and have a stinkin’ fabulous time in iceland!
and in icelandic they say, “bless!”
