I had the happy opportunity to photograph my first wedding. The bridal shower was held at private home in Pleasanton, CA. The morning of the wedding, the bride and groom visited the Sir Francis Drake Hotel and the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco. The wedding ceremony and reception followed at the Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton.
From P4FT.org: “By the year 2020, we believe we will aid in forming divergent thinkers who will shape the future of innovation. By aiding and encouraging students to take control of their own education, we will create a more creative society where innovation happens. We plan to ensure our vision is embraced by students, teachers, administrators, families and other vested individuals in order to create a culture of life-long learning. We believe in a society where education again helps stimulate economic, cultural, social, and personal growth of a nation while enriching the life of the individual.”
