AnneMarie & Kelvin Tie the Knot!

AnneMarie and Kelvin got married last May 29, 2012.  Surrounded by an intimate group of their closest friends and families, these two lovebirds tied the knot at San Francisco City Hall's magnificient rotunda, in true Hawaiian style (an expression of their love for the Hawaiian Islands).  But this was only a teaser ... the big celebration is scheduled for next February 2, 2013 at the Olympic Club Lakeside.

Both the Bride and Groom, including all their Guests were greeted with gorgeous Meile Leis and Single-Stranded Leis handmade with double-stranded White Dendrobium Orchids and Ti Leaves and others made with White and Green Dendrobium Orchinds.  These stunning floral creations were made by the oh-so-talented Jeeryn Dang of Tanjeeryn Designs.  A sumptuous Dinner Reception followed at the Tony Bennett Room at Original Joe's in North Beach.  Limousine transportation was provided by Mannie Diaz with C and M Limousines.  And their memorable moments were all captured on film by the Photo Guru himself, Orbie Pullen of Orbie Pullen Photography.  And of course, yours truly (f. duncan reyes events by design) who helped them put this gorgeous day together - and so excited for next year's grand soiree.

So to AnneMarie and Kelvin - here's an Irish Wedding Blessing from me to you in honor of your Special Day . . . . .

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sunshine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon the fields

May the light of freindship guide your paths together
May the laughter of Children grace the halls of your home
May the joy of living for one another trip a smile from your lips
A twinkle from your eye

And when Eternity beckons,
at the end of a life heaped high with love,
May the good Lord embrace you
with the arms that have nurtured you
the whole length of your joy-filled days

May the gracious God hold you both
in the palm of his hands
And today, may the Spirit of Love
find a dwelling place in your hearts.

Mr. & Mrs. Kelvin & AnneMarie Ruddy!
