Virpi and Monika’s friends and family came from all over to celebrate their marriage – from San Diego to Finland! The two met while living in San Francisco through mutual friends at a St. Patrick’s Day brunch. Virpi proposed at Santa Monica Beach. Monika thought they were going for a casual stroll until Virpi asked her to wait while she set up their location. Once she walked over, Monika found a book labeled, “Our adventure book,” with pictures of their time together. The last page read “Things we will do together,” with a ring tied to the page. The page said, “Will you marry me? Check yes or no.”
