Last weekend one of my best friends for over a decade, Matt, tied the knot!
He’s the first one out of all my friends to get married and this was my first wedding I’ve attended as an adult. I was really excited not only to witness one of my closest friends get married but to catch up with old friends that I hadn’t seen in years.
The wedding was in Saratoga, California, a quaint town near the Santa Cruz mountains. The ceremony and reception was at Hakone Estate and Gardens, a serene and beautiful Japanese garden with a koi pond and moon bridge.
I couldn’t be happier for Matt and Lisa and their new journey together as husband and wife! As excited as I am for them, I’m extremely sad because Matt will no longer be my neighbor here in Oakland (he literally lives a few blocks away from me) because he is moving to Geneva, Switzerland, literally half way across the world, to attend graduate school. I guess that means I’ll just have to plan an Eurotrip soon!
