Devin and Jade met as so many San Francisco-transplants do: via a Craigslist ad for an open room. Devin came away from the roommate interview excited about the apartment, but smitten with one of the housemates. He told his sister that night: “She’s smart, outdoorsy, and gorgeous. Do you think this is a problem?” Devin kept it cool for months, but over many a trip to the farmers market, they moved from housemates to boyfriend/girlfriend to fiances and now, housemates-for-life!
They choose the Piedmont Community Hall for its vicinity to San Francisco and lush green backdrop. The ceremony and toasts from siblings and friends were personal and touching. Jade’s mom and stepfather built the alter, hanging a candle to represent Devin’s late brother, and Devin’s high school teacher performed their marriage. The pair wanted a fun and joyful wedding, nothing stuffy and even entertained bringing in food trucks. In the end, they decided on a sit down meal enjoying a warm Piedmont night, a wild dance party, and an ice cream bar for dessert.
