Frances and Patrick
Early dim sum with the Geography grad students and some of the staff at NBC Seafood... (the usual at NBC Seafood, nom nom!), then off to Fratrick, errrrr, Patrick and Frances' wedding at Smog Shoppe! Complete with bonus alcohol delivery!
Smog Shoppe is a surprisingly cute, modern little venue, that was sized perfectly for Patrick and Frances' wedding. From getting the little ring bearer to stop shedding his shoes and go down the aisle, the couches in the back in a courtyard full of greenery, the DIY photo booths complete with photo guestbook (awesome!), Geography-themed decorations (maps and states!) and the dinner seating in what really was a converted smog shop done in a surprisingly hip way...
At least most of the crowd I knew from Frances and Patrick's friends made it, too. Kim and Daniel (plus baby!), Delia and John (who arrived *cough* late... oops! ;-) ), Sonya, Tho and Bejan, Stephen and Louise, John and Rinda, Jenn, Jaclyn, Kathy, Mykie, and I'm sure the zillion others I missed-- it was good to see them all again!
Very cool wedding. Perfectly suited the couple! It took forever, but Frances and Patrick are finally married! Congrats, Frances and Patrick!!
