The Pouching: Wedding

Joyce + Wayne Got Married

The wedding took place on Saturday, May 7, 2016 in sunny Saratoga, California. Both the ceremony and reception were held at Villa Montalvo, a landmark Mediterranean-style mansion originally built in 1912 for Senator James Duval Phelan. Eighty-four of our closest friends and family showed up in their West Coast finery, blew us away at the ceremony, took photos even when they weren’t supposed to (thanks, family!), scribbled messages of love and baby-making in our guestbook, toasted to our good health and dolphin sensuality, and hit the dance floor while causing minimal damage. Now, here are the receipts.
