I was honored that Greg asked if I could “snap some pics” at his wedding to Stefi. Of course I said, “of course”! I’ve been saying over and over that I’ve been super busy lately - but I made time for this. Luckily I had a tiny window in my work that would allow for a day to break and focus on the wedding.
Greg met Stefi online where Stefi was wanting to practice her English and Greg wanted to practice his Italian. Stefi, up until last month, lived in Italy and is Italian. Well, they kept in touch and finally met when Stefi came to California on a trip. She said as soon as she saw Greg her heart skipped a beat and she fell in love. Yay!
Greg amazingly speaks fluent Italian and is a very funny, warm and charming guy. Stefi speaks fluent English and is also funny, warm and charming – and can cook like nobody’s business.
One of the best moments of the day was, after the hair and makeup guys left (Alex and Carlos!!) Stefi’s mom, her sister and Stef made a full pasta meal! I don’t normally eat during a wedding but I sat down and had a lovely pasta meal cooked by Italian women! Heaven!

Actually, last year was a huge production that took about 2 months to complete. This year was different but still a big project. So I wanted […]

Maybe it’s just that there was a parking spot. I was running errands during my lunch break and saw a parking spot right in front so I decided to run in and grab something to go so I could take […]
