On Saturday it will be three years ago that Matt, Candy and I went to a special SF Giants game together. Looking at our outfits I was able to determine that it was Italian Heritage Night. This theme is one of personal pride to them both as Matt’s late dad was of Italian heritage.
With Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, my Throw Back Thursday will focus on meaningful pics of Matt’s father and my father. Though Matt’s dad passed on when he was three, from all I’ve heard both our dads were very hands on parents and my guess is they would have liked each other a lot, and found they had a lot in common including loving sports and dogs had they been able to meet one another. Matt and I have framed photos of our dads in matching silver frames.
Several ago I worked on a very part time basis photographing weddings. It was a lot of fun and I met some wonderful people both at them and through networking events. In 2012 one of these events included the 4th Anniversary for Club Auto Sport, a venue that both rents beautiful luxury cars to its members and also had events in which guests could see amazing cars they may never see anywhere else. I’d been told the event was dress as you like and after seeing a beautiful dress on my way day after day I knew I’d be wearing it for the event. In honor of their ninth year anniversary coming up tomorrow, this event is half of my Throw Back Thursday.
In honor of the 40th anniversary of the release of Star Wars which occurred on May 25th (and is incredibly also the first time Candy felt Matt kick within her womb), today’s Throw Back Thursday is the Force Friday Toy Preview Sale that Matt and I attended.
This year’s Throw Back Thursday is dedicated to Red Nose Day which we are celebrating today in the US. This holiday which originated in the UK in 1985, and they had their celebration last month. Three years ago this event crossed over to the United States, and while I did not know it was going on then, last year I did, as did Petra who served as Maid of Honor on my wedding day. We both proudly donned the red nose for the event, to raise awareness of and funds for children in poverty.
Our wedding day was one of the happiest of our lives. In addition to living on in memories, our day lives on in the over 1000 photos our amazing photographer, Chance James took. Ironically, though we’ve now been married a year, we haven’t ordered a wedding album yet, though I did consider it as an anniversary present. There were so many wonderful images that tell our story. We were married on Monastery Beach on Carmel by the Sea. It was a beautiful and cool day.

In honor of our first wedding anniversary, just four days from today, today’s Throw Back Thursday features highlights from my Bachelorette and Rehearsal Dinners. The former was a great event that allowed me to celebrate with my Maid of Honor, Petra, My Bridesmaid, Shauna and friends Monica and Katki in a low key and very fun night out.
