"Hello Kitty" Wedding Cake. Eleanor's idea was implemented, whereby a different cake was placed as a centerpiece on each table, inviting socialization among the guests. (I was at the 'Carrot Cake' table: the 'Chocolate Orange' table was to die for!)
Marc Valdez and Juan Mendoza. Though Juan and myself both have known Gabe for many years (Juan went to seminary with him), Juan knew me before primarily through reputation (both he and his wife Heather are huge 'Breaking Bad' fans). Now, we are all friends!
