This couple has a very touching story.  She is a cancer survivor.  He does great things in his community and with the Boy Scouts.  Together, I have no doubt they will do amazing things and share a love with those around them even bigger than the love they share on their own.

I loved all the yummy colors!  There was a citrus-y theme and it was so bright and cheery.

Melissa, you are simply gorgeous.  And it was obvious that your dad is bursting with pride for you…

One of my favorites from the day…

The ceremony and reception was held at the Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch near Visalia, CA.  I love this ranch — it is seriously breathtaking and SO relaxing… It is not only a perfect place for weddings, they also have a bed and breakfast that you must check out if you are in the area.

Yes, I think these girls know how to have some fun.

Hello, lovely sunlight…

Such a gorgeous evening.  Such an inspiring couple.  Congratulations, Melissa and Thomas!

These two just stepped out of People Magazine.  Well, maybe not yet, but do not be surprised to find Justin in a copy of Bon Appetit in the near future!  He and his new bride just moved (away from us 🙁 ) so that he could attend the prestigious Culinary Institute of America (yes, CIA)… seriously, a school where AMAZING chefs have attended and cooked and gone on to HUGE things.  This is where they are headed.  I have had the pleasure of eating food prepared by him (and her), and I was blown away. 

Have I mentioned how beautiful Korina is???  Girl, you have the best smile…


Not only do they make fabulous food, they are hilarious.  Here is Korina imitating Paula Poundstone… 

I love this…

We had to stop and get cannolis at the Italian Deli that they introduced me to.  OH deliciousness.

We miss you both TONS and hope that the CIA is treating you well.  We hope to be one of your first customers at The French Laundry, or whever you end up ;-).  We are so blessed to have met you!!
