On Sunday, October 20th, Esther and Jon’s were married at Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasanton. Grace and I (and pretty much everyone who knows and loves Jon) had been waiting a long, long time for that day to arrive. It was a perfect day for an afternoon ceremony. Grace was recruited to help with day-of preparations and did a fantastic job with the decorations.
Several months ago, Esther and Jon asked me to be their officiant and I couldn’t have been more honored. About a week before the wedding, I went to San Francisco City Hall to be deputized as Deputy Marriage Commissioner For A Day. It was super official.
Esther looked amazing and Jon was beaming all day. The ceremony was beautiful, and all the credit goes to Esther, Jon and their wedding party. Jon and Esther wrote their own vows, which were so touching. Thankfully, everyone kept it together (including me), and it was one of the greatest thrills of my life to pronounce them husband and wife.
There was such a great group of family and friends who participated in their wedding, including so many of our Kellogg friends. The reception was borderline raucous, and even ended with blood on the dance floor … from Grace’s big toe. Funny thing is she barely felt a thing.
We couldn’t be happier that Esther and Jon found each other and have chosen to spend their lives together. Congratulations!
