Married at Last!!!

Neither fire nor rain could stop this marriage in Rancho Santa Fe on Feb. 2, 2008. The San Diego fires in October 2007 forced us to postpone our wedding five days before the date! We felt so fortunate to finally get married three months later in February 2008 at the same location in Rancho Santa Fe, the epicenter of the fires.

A Kiss to Build a Dream on

This is the wedding of Rachel Quizon and Ephraim Maniago on Oct. 20, 2007, at the Prado, Balboa Park, in San Diego. Surrounded by our family and friends, most of whom drove two hours from L.A. to San Diego to be with us, we were blessed with perfect weather just one day before the San Diego wildfires erupted. This photo captures one of my favorite moments of the day -- stealing a kiss on the veranda after the ceremony while our guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the Prado courtyard.

He Married the Monkey on His Back!

We grew up seven miles from each other outside of Boston but never knew each other. We met at a sunset beach party in Playa del Rey. Our entire family came out from Massachusetts to see us married in Malibu. Oct. 14, 2005, was the sunniest day of our lives.

Flower Girl Pirouettes in the Sand

This is Claire Kupershmidt, age 5, at Monastery Beach in Carmel following our wedding on Aug. 5, 2007. She is the youngest daughter of the bride (me!) and completely stole the heart and lens of our brilliant photographer, Jose Villa. All of our wedding photos were spectacular, but there is something so pure and magical about this one moment.

Italian Wedding Overlooking Lake Como

My husband, John Hennessy, and I had been together for 12 years before we got married on Nov. 30, 2005. We decided it was time to get married, and we wanted something very special, small and with not a lot of people. We have very good friends in Milan and thought getting married in Italy with them standing up for us would fit our dreams. I had no idea what a tremendous amount of paperwork that would entail, but I was determined and we fulfilled all the necessary requirements. Our friends found a little village in the hills over ooking Lake Como that had a city hall and a mayor who agreed to perform the ceremony, with our friend being the translator. It ended up being romantic and charming. The mayor was thrilled to do it, and his secretary got me a bouquet that touched me to tears. We told no one at home what we were going to do and sent an announcement when we returned that was a duplication of a card given to us by the mayor.

Perfect Kiss

We were married Sept 22, 2007, at Woods Cove in Laguna Beach. Everything was perfect, except it was high tide. During the ceremony everyone kept moving around, dodging the water. But one way or another, we all got a little wet. So, appropriately, after the ceremony, we took pictures in the water. This one was our favorite and reminds us of our perfect day and the perfect kiss.

Our Mediterranean Wedding

We were married Oct. 12, 2007, in a seaside garden perched above the Amalfi coast in the small village of Ravello, Italy. Our wedding day was like a dream. We walked the narrow cobblestone streets in our wedding attire toward the magical 11th century Villa Cimbrone. Everyone involved in the wedding, from the hairdresser to the violinists, had lived their entire lives in this small region and made us feel as though we were part of their family. Standing perched over the Amalfi coast on our wedding day--there couldn’t have been a better place to celebrate our love.

The Day I Became a Lira

We were married on July 8, 2007, at Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Rancho Palos Verdes. This is a whale-watching muesum located off the bluff. The day was dark and gray until the pastor pronounced us husband and wife and – no lie -- a ray of light shined from the sky. Our guests cheered so loud. It was an amazing day.

Our Wedding in a Swedish Castle

This is our Aug.19, 2006, reception at the Landskrona Citadellet, following our wedding at Glumslov church in Sweden. Citadellet is Swedish for castle, and we are standing next to the castle’s moat. Aug.19 is special to my family: My stepfather, who is is Swedish, married my mother at the same church on that date in 1978. My two brothers and I were baptized on Aug. 19 at that church. And our son, Deucalion, was born on Aug. 19, 2007 (in London).
