When and where did you get married?
October 15, 2016 at Wine & Roses Hotel, Restuarnt and Spa in Lodi.
Any children (fur or human)?
Our first fur baby was born on January 12th. She’s an Australian Labradoodle!
What do you do for a living?
I work for Visit Sacramento as the Marketing & Business Development Manager for Sacramento365, the region’s largest all-inclusive arts and entertainment event calendar.
Where are you living?
What do you enjoy doing with your family?
My husband Eric and I love exploring the food scene with our family and friends in the Downtown/Midtown area. We are also Kings season ticket holders and love the 15-minute walk to Golden 1 Center.
Knowing what you now know, what advice would you give yourself on your wedding day?
Breath and take every moment in, because it goes by so fast but is magical.
Whats your favorite part of marriage?
Growing and experiencing life together. We’re busy with our careers, enjoying married life, spending time with our loved ones, and loving our first (fur) child.
