“The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”– Rumi


Friends came from near and far to celebrate the amalgamation of new families blended through love.

At the reception, Yang Zhou (Rachel) and Zhaocong Yang (Oliver) schooled me on modern day Chinese culture (of which I’m now an honorary member), tried to teach me how to use chopsticks (it’s hopeless), and showed me how to properly eat Peking duck! Love these two!
