Caroline and Yu started dating all the way back in high school. After four years of college and another few after that, they were practically common law already, but made it official with a beautiful bash at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. The ballroom was grand, and the food was delicious, and Caroline changed outfits twice! It was also pretty cool seeing a lot of folks whom I hadn't seen since we graduated, but this time in SF. Take a peek at the festivities.

There are few greater feelings than walking into a room, (somewhat) unsuspecting, and finding all your friends in there, shouting "surprise"! and wishing you a happy birthday. A very honest and jittery c pulled it off when I turned 26--the happy event was replete with good friends, presents!, and legolas (who eventually was banished to my closet door).
It's hard pulling off a surprise, especially when people are on asian time, and you aren't there to drill-seargeant everyone in to place because you're busy keeping the surprisee busy. But it's the tiny mishaps along the way that make surprises funny and memorable, like n, m, and d trying to hide behind the mailboxes in the entryway to me and e's apartment, doing their best not to be discovered!
In any case, tow has, hands down, the best pictures. He makes everyone shine!
