Early in the booking process, Julia figured out the most direct, and fastest path to my heart; a totally unannounced and utterly unexpected box of roughly twenty music CDs shipped to our studio. I was familiar with most of the bands, but I didn’t own any of the albums in the box. This was like Christmas times eight for me.
Brett and Julia met while working at a large music distribution company in California. One of the perks of a job like this are copious amounts of music sitting around one’s cubicle which I would assume was a likely source of the music that Julia sent to us. What was scary was just how precisely she had nailed our musical tastes. Several of the albums that she sent are still in heavy rotation around the office.
love these! those plaid suits are great! and her dress is amazing!
psst… this is pretty much exactly what we’re going for. ha!
Wow, these are amazing, and WHAT A DRESS!
Oh, Julia. How lovely… and how very you. Congratulations, and your photographer captured it perfectly!

My sister got married and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.
Kidding! I also got to take my wife to a rippin’ swanky soiree, and I got to see Julia happier than she’s ever been. Well, except for the time I bought her the chess set for Christmas.
Fabulous sister! Been sharing the amazing pix with all who will see – some folks just like looking at them without even knowing you two because they are so beautiful. Thank you for grand affair. We enjoyed a memory of a lifetime. Can we do it again soon!
You two are the ultimate ‘tastemakers,’ just the kind of people to whom we want to expose our artists- so definitely enjoy the music and spread the word!!

You really do look like a movie star (not just on these pics) but I have to admit that Grandpa looks pretty good too:)
