I started planning Charles & Ismael’s Wedding 9 months prior, all by phone, emails and texts. We had never met until just days prior to their Wedding Day. That alone said a lot about them and how they entrusted and confided in me to give them a fabulous Wedding. And you know what? I kept that promise! For Charles & Ismael, San Francisco will always be a place where they left their hearts. The city had so many sentimental reasons and memories for them that they wanted to celebrate their life and love with those they loved and those that loved them. And the Wedding was made complete with their cute little Chihuahua love-of-their-life, Ricky! He proudly walked down the aisle with them, as dapperly dressed as the Grooms, fully clad with a stylish bowtie and a doggie sweater that read “My Dads Just Got Married!”. And get married they did!
Charles & Ismael – as the two of you unite in love and in friendship, pledge to each other, give and receive, promise each other to guide and to protect. Vow to each other, to encourage and inspire, dream together, laugh together and when the music plays . . . Dance! Congratulations!
