These ladies are the coolest of cool, the best of the best, and the most amazing of all the amazing folks I know. They are philanthropists and businesswomen with big hearts and even bigger laughs. Jen is a financial advisor and land banking manager. In fact, she is MY financial advisor and land banking manager. If you are looking for someone to help you invest in your future, I stand 100% behind this woman. Lauren is an OB/GYN and although I can’t vouch for her services in that arena, I can vouch for her unbelievably infectious personality. She is all smiles and graciousness, with a sprinkling of sarcastic snarky.
A few years ago, Jen spent over a year traveling in Vietnam and fell in love with the people she met there. She had such an inspiring experience in her years abroad that she successfully fundraised, built and now maintains a home for 24 impoverished, disadvantaged or orphaned children in Vietnam called Mary’s House. Mary’s House opened in January of 2012 and is named after Jen’s grandmother, Mary. Mary’s House will be the recipient of my 2015 donations but you don’t have to wait for a donation to be made in your name to Mary’s House by hiring me: you can simply follow this link to read more about Mary’s House, Jen’s mission, and donate today. If you are interested in more information about my pledge to give back to others, you may follow this link.
Jen and Lauren are absolutely 100% perfect for each other and it became even more clear in the week I spent celebrating with them in their hometown of San Diego, CA. They were wed in a boisterous and laughter filled ceremony at the San Diego Fire House Museum in Little Italy. It was an amazing wedding venue and held both the ceremony and reception. Guests stayed at the nearby Porto Vista Hotel, a mere two block walk from the venue. I have to give extra special props to their catering company, Waters Catering. It was the BEST most delicious food I’ve ever eaten at a wedding, hands down, and I have been to a lot of weddings!
Here’s a few too many of my favorite photos from their Firehouse Museum wedding. I had such a hard time narrowing these down. The party was so awesome and the people so gorgeous it was hard to pick just a few!
