Love, hugs, love, family, love, friends, and more love ... the glow continues from our Welcome Gathering "Tacos and Toasts" at Georis Gardens in Carmel Valley the night prior to the gorgeous wedding of our son Collin Kriner to our beautiful, talented, daughter-in-law Emily Botel last week.
We were so very touched by those who chose to join us - connections from near and far, older and more recent - and by the tender and humorous words spoken about Collin and Emily. I often told Collin, as he left the house when younger, "have fun and make good decisions." He made very good decisions in his friends, who warmed my heart with their affection, loyalty and attentiveness to all of us, and, especially, his choice of Emily as his wife. And Emily's friends were equally warm. They brought together a deeply happy gathering of people to celebrate them.
And, our hearts were overwhelmed with the open embrace from Ann and Scott and their family members. We learned a new and lovely word machatonim, which is so much more than "in-laws" - a lifelong connection made through this wedding.
Thank you to Rob Weber for these photos! And to Ann and Scott for the perfect wedding.
