The new Meara (Noe) Boling

Yesterday we had the great privilege of attending Meara and Jarrett’s wedding, held at Highlands Park, among the pines and redwood trees of the Santa Cruz mountains. We had an absolute blast – not only was the event a fun celebration for Meara & Jarrett, but it was also a mini-reunion of sorts – most of the old Kintana crew turned out for the big day! It was great to catch up with the gang.

If you’ve read this blog for very long, you know about my obsession with ice cream. (This seems like a total non sequitur, I know, but hang on.) Meara’s wedding was a combination of traditional and some non-traditional elements, no surprise if you know Meara 🙂 But I have to say that I think she just might have innovated in the most amazing way imaginable: instead of a wedding cake, she had an ice cream sundae bar! With no less than 4 kinds of ice cream! You could have it any way you wanted – with a cookie, with whipped cream, with caramel or chocolate (or both, in my case.) Cherries & nuts – it was all there. I was in HEAVEN. Mike Winstandley is going to go down in infamy for his comment after getting his bowl, though: “Well, this sure doesn’t suck.” Doesn’t suck!? Pure ecstasy, my friend.

The photo above is of Meara and her brother Buck, whom I’ve heard a lot about over the years, but never had the chance to meet – quite a character!

While full of joy, Meara’s wedding was also a little bittersweet – in September, Meara and Jarrett will be leaving the Bay Area and relocating to Alaska, where Jarrett is from. Of course, they’ve invited everyone to come visit, but they’ll definitely be missed… we’ll just have to make those plans to visit soon!

If you’d like to see additional shots of the fun event, you can check them out over on my Smugmug Gallery.

Congrats, Meara!
