BRIAN BYRDSONG and NEIL ROGERS
CONGRATULATIONS, Brian and Neil – you finally tied the knot! I’ve known them both for about 15 years when I first met Brian at the Stop AIDS Project where he was Development Director and I was a Board Member and VP of Fund Development creatively assisting him with raising money and planning fundraisers for the agency. Since then, we’ve become very close friends over the years, and it was also the same time he had just met Neil during a business trip to San Francisco. Neil lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland and travels extensively around the world. Both have never been apart since the day they first met, traveling between San Francisco and Geneva, and all parts of the globe where Neil’s job takes him (I want their mileage points!). This perfectly matched couple celebrated their nuptials last August 12th at The University Club of San Francisco, San Francisco’s most elegant and elite historic clubhouse located atop Nob Hill. With the help of my “Dream Team” of wedding professionals, here’s a peek at the fruits of our labor.
Congratulations again, Brian & Neil . . . you’re wedding was as spectacular and fabulous as you!
