engagement

I’m back from Taiwan, but before I go through my photos and share the highlights I thought I’d do a post on past events.

So before I got married, I got engaged.

There isn’t really much of a story but there was a lovely private moment with a picnic in the park with a huge ornamental kale as a present.

The aforementioned ornamental kale.

We had a huge spontaneous party with our friends and family the night we announced the engagement. We call it a L’chaim.

We were also lucky enough to have an exceptional artist do our engagement and wedding photos. Here’s just a few of my favourites.

The first of many

So I got engaged and then I got married. Pretty standard order for events.

What we did a little bit differently is that we had a SURPRISE WEDDING!

Yeah, that was awesome.

We invited friends and family to an engagement party and then in the middle it turned into a wedding. We pulled out a chuppa and a rabbi and got it done right then.

It was a pretty good day. It was certainly the best wedding that I’ve ever been to.

Since people, including myself, find wedding details and photos fascinating, consider this warning that there will be quite a few posts in the near future detailing the big event.

But just to start you off, here’s the video that announced the surprise!

P.S. all the direction and production and editing of this awesome film was done by the boy. Pretty neat huh?!
