I adore them.
I’m so thankful to call them friends now. They love music, and dancing, and laughter, and good food. They are adventurous, curious and sardonic. They say yes when I invite them to concerts by bands they’ve never heard of and they invite me to concerts by bands that I’ve never heard of. They are willing to go to burlesque shows starring my former clients. They like brunch (but, I mean, never trust a person that doesn’t). They have some incredible moves on the dancefloor.
Dost and Nick wanted an intimate backyard gathering with their motley crew of far flung friends and family. Their guest list was as diverse as they are, with folks coming from as far away as Turkey. They rented a beautiful house directly on the water through VRBO for their Tahoe backyard wedding and as an added surprise, it decided to snow that week. Bonus: Dost made good use of a thrift store fur coat that was perfect for the occasion, which is to say, it was fucking freezing that day and she had no choice but looked amazing in it.
We were all thankful for the tent and for the best DJ around Dave Berkman, who was willing to completely break down and move mid-day his entire setup inside so everyone could cut
a rug the grass in relative comfort while it was 40 degrees out in Tahoe in September.
Dost and Nick have since told me that they were drawn to my work because they loved the way I capture movement and motion, which is something their dancefloor had plenty of! I’m so incredibly honored to not only have been part of their day, but have new friends also.
