You know when there are certain people in your life that show up to the party and certain people who bring the party? I caught on pretty quick that Brittany and Jesse are definitely the party bringers. Jesse is the laid back but here for a good time type and Brittany is the burning flame that keeps the vibes high all through the night.
We started out in the bath houses (which are unreal, by the way). The ladies had a separate bath house full of their own victorian and rustic styled decor and - ahem - a floating bed! The guys had their own cool, man-cave-esque digs with a foosball table and a row boat hanging from the ceiling. It felt like the kind of place you would open an expensive bottle of scotch and slowly drink it by the fire with a cigar (I’m just saying’).
The whole day was gorgeous from everything about the bride to the whimsical and ethereal venue itself. The ceremony was full of laughter from a pretty comical officiant (and close friend of Brittany and Jesse) and witty, personal vows. However, It wasn’t until the toasts that I really got to know Brittany and Jesse better. Even though I had spent some time with them during their engagement session - I didn’t realize exactly what magnitude of cat-people they were. Let me just say, I love Jesse and Brittany and their cat-loving hearts tremendously.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to party with their cats at the wedding, but I did learn about how Jesse is known for building forts for them. They even had photos of their cats as Photo Booth props at the wedding. Aside from the ceremony, the dance floor quickly became the main attraction and quite possibly the dance party of my dreams fully equipped with cat faces, horses, and an entire squad of women getting “buck in here.”
I guess that's just what happens when two incredible people get married after 7 years together. Well, that and having a rambunctious group of friends who know how to have a good time.
Brittany and Jesse - you have made my life brighter just by knowing you. This was one epic party that commenced your marriage and a lifetime of good times together. I wish you two all the happiness, laughter, pool parties, cat cuddles and most importantly 49ers victories. Congratulations!!
