Here is a long over due collection of Butterfinger’s baby pictures. For those of you who don’t know, Butterfinger is Erin’s and my english bulldog. Anyone who doesn’t have kids and has a dog knows that she’s our little princess. These pictures are from when my dad and I traveled down to Trimbull Bulldogs in Alabama to pick out Butterfinger. As you can see in the pictures she was from a litter of 3 girls. Her mom and pop Angel and Zito(the big bullie in the cage pictures.)
Here is a bunch of pictures from the wedding that have been touched up by the artists over at Modern Images:
Modern Images has sent us a link to our proofs. We’ve got a DVD coming soon and we’ll get those posted on the site, but for the time being feel free to check them out at this link:
At the wedding we had a photo booth and invited everyone in to have a little fun taking pictures. If you were at the wedding and didn’t get a picture printed because of the printer issue. Please leave a comment with which pictures you didn’t get and the photo booth company will reprint and send you a copy.
What can we say about Iman other than, we love him. He is the best friend anyone could ever have and when it came to a best man decision, there was never any questions. For any Best Men To Be…talk to Iman. He could write a book on how to be a best man. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. He capped it all off with this stellar best man speech caught by Scott’s iPhone. (Scott – Thanks for capturing this)
I’ll also toss it up on the videos page.
I’ve added a new video of our entire wedding ceremony over on the videos page and embedded it below. We had a blast the whole night and you’ll see we got started in true Erin and Gary fashion. Enjoy!
I’ve added a new video of Erin and I reciting our vows over on the videos page. We’ve got plenty more coming, but right now we’re enjoying our first few days as newlyweds. Once that wears off I’m sure we’ll spend more time getting everything posted.
If you’ve got pictures of the wedding please send us a comment with your email address or email us so we can get copies from you. Thanks.
On our first night of our honeymoon in San Francisco Erin and I headed to AME Restaurant for dinner. Located at the St. Regis San Francisco this started our dining experience off on the right foot. We found AME Restaurant via opentable.com under the Michelin Star winning restaurants. It won a star in both 2008 and 2009. Hiro Sone and Lissa Doumani have put together great New American style food with what I found to be a Japanese influence. In addition to the standard dining menu, AME boasts a great sashimi menu.
Next up was a fish course. We were treated to a “Broiled Sake Marinated Alaskan Black Cod in Shiso Broth.”
This was my favorite dish of the night. The cod was amazing; however I did find the broth to be too salty after the cod was finished to eat alone.
For dessert we were treated to two different dishes. First Erin enjoyed a “Summer Fruit Shortcake with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Almond Brittle”
I enjoyed a “Warm Rhubarb Pie with Orange Flower Ice Cream”
The decor in the restaurant was very clean and modern. It’s elegance was a perfect fit for the St. Regis and Erin and I both enjoyed the vibe. It was a little loud for such a small restaurant, but that fit the look and feel. The wait staff was good and made us feel right at home. As you’ll note in a couple of the pictures, they learned through conversation that it was our honeymoon and decorated the desserts accordingly. The wine pairings were very good, but nothing that wow’d us.
Here is a picture album with pictures of Erin and I at AME. At the end of the night we had to be a bit over dramatic as we left the restaurant slightly buzzed and extremely full.
We’ve been super busy this weekend making more decisions and planning away for the wedding that seems like it is flying closer. We’ve also added a couple of new pieces to the website. Besides the new look you’ll notice the new “Our Story” page and Directions page.
Much more will be added here in the coming weeks and please let us know what information you’d like to see on the site.
