You know that feeling when an email pops up in your box from someone you haven’t heard from in awhile, and you’re so excited to hear the latest? That how I felt when Tu-Lien wrote recently to say she was flying to San Francisco for a secret intimate wedding. Wow! What an honor to meet her fiancé and memorialize the occasion. Last time I saw Tu-Lien we were running around Golden Gate Park to photograph her family – three generations and two dogs – before her grandma returned to Vietnam.
It was a gorgeous warm sunny day at San Francisco City Hall. If you ever get married there, be SURE to request officiant Gabriel Breitzke-Rivera. He volunteers his time officiating marriages and shares a positive uplifting demeanor. I did a search and found Mr. Breitzke-Rivera quoted here – tells a lot about who he is as a person. Tu-Lien and Murat, as well as I, really appreciated his mini ceremony.
