Jani + Jame’s Story: (Words from the bride)
We became friends during our sophomore year in college and started dating in Feb 2008. I think we just clicked once we got to know each other better. We had similar interests but also very different interests so we were introducing each other to new things. We loved eating good food together, watching movies, hanging out with friends. After college, James went to medical school in Buffalo, NY and I stayed in SoCal for 2 years before heading to medical school in Vermont. I think those were the toughest years because we went from spending every day together to hardly seeing each other a few times a year. We’ve travelled a lot together: studied abroad in Australia together, road tripped across the USA twice, explored cities like New Orleans, Boston, NYC, Montreal, Toronto, Chicago and of course, Buffalo and Burlington VT. Tomorrow we are celebrating 9 years together!
Words from the bride:
The wedding was so FUN and exactly how we hoped it would be. We were afraid that it would be stressful and worried that things could go wrong, but just seeing ALL of our friends we made over the years and all of our family together celebrating was wonderful and special. We felt so loved. Just can’t think of a favorite moment. From the first look to beach pictures to cake cutting and dancing, every moment was surreal and beautiful. Loved every moment.
Words from Carissa Woo: I love this Jani + James. They are always smiling and cracking jokes. James burst into tears when he saw Jani and I really got choked up. We got so lucky with weather. It was raining cats a dog the day before the wedding. I love how we got to take photos at the beach at sunset, the lighting was soft with pastel colors. This wedding from start to finish was just wonderful. They ended the night by dancing their faces off with all their friends and family. Their guests have some crazy dance moves. Jani + James are off to London for their honeymoon, what a whirlwind! Congrats your two!
