Upward Bound House Gala

Adi and I were so honored to be invited to the Upward Bound House Gala Dinner at the Skirball Center last night by my former wedding clients, Jen and Peter, and Jen’s mother, Mugsy. Every year, Mugsy generously sponsors a dinner table and invited us to be her guests. There was an inspiring speech given by Ken “Coach” Carter who reminded us to give back to our communities. I wholeheartedly agree. Adi and I donated a portrait sitting to the silent auction and were thrilled when Mugsy announced to the table that she had won it and is planning on using it for herself and her new grandson (Jen and Peter’s baby, of course) who is due in six weeks!
Jen and Peter had the most amazing wedding at Shutter’s on the Beach in July ’05. They definitely win the award for the couple who literally created the wedding of their dreams. Jen made her own linens and runner, ribboned 1000 candles, created a teddy bear toss for the 32 kiddies (instead of a bouquet toss) and that’s just the beginning. Watch out, Martha!
