I have always had a very closely-knit extended family. Even with us living on Maui and most of the cousins living in California, we’ve always been close. As if every single time we’ve been together we just pick up right where we left off. My family are a bunch of fun, energetic, opinionated, fantabulous people.
My cousin Jessie has always been fantastic. I think we’ve always called her The Golden Child. Always the sweetest kid, a super smart teenager, thoughtful, kind…. the type of person you just love to be around. She’s been moving around the Country a bit – not to brag at all but she’s an uber smart doctor – ok maybe a little bragging. Though she’s dated some eligible guys, nobody has been right for her…. until…. her friend created an Ok Cupid account that HE managed on her behalf. When her friend told her that a guy named Dushan looked like a great match, Jessie was reluctant but trusted her friend. And little did Dushan know he had been communicating with Jessie’s friend and not her, herself. But when they met up, sparks flew. And according to Ryan and Danny, Jessie’s brothers, Dushan is the guy for Jessie.
I was thrilled, elated, ecstatic when Jessie asked if I’d be available to come to San Francisco for their wedding. The wedding date literally fit between 2.5 days of availability and I flew out for a whirlwind of amazingness.
All of the Aunts, Uncles, Cousins… all of us under one roof! It was amazing and so much needed. It has been a while since all of us have been together. When I first met Dushan, I just knew…. knew he was a great person and a wonderful match for Jessie.
We started out the morning quite early…. all of us up at 5:30am before heading into The City at 7:30am.
San Francisco City Hall was abuzz with excited couples. We waited our turn in this amazing building and then we had a lovely ceremony. We were joined by some very excited tourists as well!
Then it was a bit of couple’s images around City Hall, which is actually where my Aunt and Uncle were married as well!
We gallivanted around the city a bit and then headed for an amazing lunch at Kokkari San Francisco.
After everyone was thoroughly stuffed and happy, we headed to Hotel Zetta to lounge and have fun in their play room.
Thank you to my Mom for capturing ^^^ this picture of me and Jessie!
To my entire Plauche’ family – I love you so much. XOXOXO Congratulations Jessie and Dushan!
