Vanisha + Chris

Our history as two couples has very much been intertwined since we first struck up a friendship five years ago. We bonded over sushi, wine and hockey games; first as newly dating couples... and now, today, as two married couples. For this reason, the story of Chris and Vanisha's wedding is one that is very close to our hearts.

When it was time for Chris to propose to Vanisha (and we all agreed it was time!), Daniel helped Chris pick out a ring, that we then brought with us to Mexico where we were all headed for our own wedding. And on the eve of our wedding, by the ocean where Daniel and I would exchange vows the very next day, Chris asked Vanisha to marry him. When she said yes, we had the great honor to be the first ones to congratulate them and share a very tearful hug with them.

When it came to planning their own big day, Chris and Vanisha knew what they wanted: a small, intimate affair in Napa Valley, a place they had always dreamt of visiting. Despite the painful task of limiting their guest list to just their parents, their sisters and Daniel and I, they stuck to their dream wedding plan.

There was something so beautiful about watching them exchange vows in the carriage house at the Charles Krug winery - a room big enough to hold hundreds of people, yet only had 8 people bearing witness to this special moment. We mused that there was just enough space to hold the invisible presence of their many friends and family who were absent.

Sharing their tiny yet magical wedding days was one of the most special moments of our lives. And, well, needless to say, we just love them so much.
