very love story is great adventure, and for Janice and Bertram, it was all about making adventures happen for two of the most selfless people who dedicate their time and lives helping others. When I spoke with the couple of the places they’d been and the volunteering they’d done, it honestly inspired me to do more for others. Hearing their great stories and being a part of this important day is EXACTLY what inspires me and why I love what I do.
The couple wedded in August of 2014 at Hartley Botanica, surrounded by a lush setting of trees everywhere! The couple really let their personalities and relationship shine through by incorporating the places they traveled and the love of things they share together and individually. For their escort installation, the couple told us how they climbed Mount Kilamanjaro and felt like their Klean Kanteen water bottles were life savers! It was only natural the couple wanted to share their love of this durable container with their friends and family, and a 8′ tall x 7.5 wide wall was built and stained to display the Klean Kanteen water bottles for their guests.
Janice and Bertram’s beautiful ceremony followed by an outdoor dinner under the summer sky, while listening to a live band and dancing the night away. Did I mention they had the most delectable wedding cake made by Sweet Lady Jane, a made-to-order hot churro truck AND a Hawaiian shaved ice station to represent each the bride and groom’s favorite desserts. It was truly dessert HEAVEN.
Janice and Bertram, I see your photos on IG of all your adventures and could not be more happy to see two exceptionally kind and generous people travel the world together. I hope your sense or wonder and curiosity will always be as BIG as always, and that your little one on the way will feel the same sense of compassion as you two. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the beginning of your new adventure. Love you both so much!
