Following the epic adventure of Envision, I quickly shifted gears to prepare for what would be the most magical experience of my life, my wedding! We had a few days to prepare, meet family, and take care of all the thousands of things that come up days before a wedding. It was absolutely fantastic and I feel like the luckiest man alive. My wife Cristina is a treasure beyond belief. I am so grateful that the majority of her family was able to make it as well as a good chunk of mine. Because of the proximity to Envision, so many of our mutual friends were able to attend as well. We were on one of the most beautiful beaches imaginable and had some of the finest contributors alive to help make it so incredible unforgettable. Big thanks first to all our family that could make it and contribute so generously to our matrimony, as well as all the gorgeous friends that attended. Special thanks to all those who contributed to the building of the space, the cooking of the food, the creating of the tea lounge, the musical offerings, the sexy performances, the floral majesty, the photographic capturing, the elegant officiants, and all the helpers who filled in where and when needed. Here is a list of some folks that we would like to promote:
