Nica and Lam are married! These two I honestly can not say enough about. Their wedding at Kirgin Cellars was filled with tears of joy, rain from the sky, laughter from friends and family, excitement from their almost three year old, endless merriment from their daughter’s best friend and bridesmaids daughter, and honestly so much more. These two help define the ideal of what family means to me. Lam is a husband devoted to not just provide love and support, but to intrinsically search for ways to surprise and delight his wife in an ever evolving relationship. Nica is a wife who not only nurtures a relationship of tenderness for both Lam and Zooey but she has created a household built on the foundation of devotion and intimacy for themselves. Their love is special, not that all love isn’t. There is a care that goes beyond the everyday and mundane that pushes each other. They work together at the same hospital, they raise a child together, and spend more time with each other than most couples. It is a relationship that at the very core I understand well what it is like to have a professional life and family life together. You spend so many of your waking moments supporting and understanding each other as you have similar jobs, and of course the same goals for the future of your family. These are just some of the elements that created the village of support Nica and Lam have. It is why emotion was not driven slowly to the forefront of their wedding but instead landed with an air of certainty that it was ok to share how each other felt. They both wore their feelings not just on their sleeves, but on their faces, and with their hearts in way allowed their friends and family to share in that same experience. I too, while holding a camera, had a couple tears roll down my cheek as I watched Lam choke up as he read his vows. Thank you so much for showing Lisa and I how you love those around you. It is love like this that not only inspires us to capture intimate stories but emboldens the need to constantly evolve in our own marriage. We grow watching our couples grow. Thank you. Thank you so much for sharing your wedding day with us at Kirgin Cellars in Gilroy.
