Van and Marin's wedding
Brunch at Din Tai Fung with Pearl and her group (and before Amy and Nik headed back home), where we waited an hour or something (don't ask, people ran late, not entirely DTF being crazy packed!) for a delicious meal of xiao long bao and hot and sour soup... then over to bakery next door for more snacks, THEN, finally, off to change and head up to Van and Marin's wedding at the Castaway Luau Gardens in Burbank.
As a side note, as delicious as DTF is, it is one bloody expensive place to eat if you're hungry. So don't come hungry... or if you do, go to the bakery first!
Van and Marin's wedding was in the hills above Burbank, at the Castaway Luau Gardens. A lovely little venue in the hills over a golf course, with sun and a little wind, plus a tiny little waterfall. Very pretty! Just watch your step on the (slightly uneven) lawn, especially at night when it gets dark and cools off.
Beautiful wedding for a great couple, and clearly, a very happy family and friends to all be there!
