On the 26th of January, 2013 at the Ebell Club in Long Beach
Kate and Moses have been friends since 2005, tailgating at the USC games with Jonathan Atha, Moses' business partner. They would sit in the back of Moses' SUV and 'people watch' at all the...interesting people. Every year the tailgating group has a year-end dinner, and in 2010 Monica Atha asked Moses "what about Kate?"
"What about Kate?" They talked quietly about it as he tried to explain that 'they'd been friends too long' and he 'wasn't sure' when around the corner to join the conversation comes Kate..
"What are you guys talking about over here."
Moses, embarrassed (can't you see him blushing?) gets up and walks away.
As everyone says their goodbyes Kate comes up to Moses and says they should go see a movie or something soon. He (surprisingly if you ask her) agreed. That Tuesday, January 26, 2010, they went to the District in Tustin and saw 'The Book of Eli'. They've been together ever since.
Their wedding day will mark their 3 year anniversary.
She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities.
She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway.
She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when your smiling even in the dark.
She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink.
Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.
I thank you endlessly for all you have done over the years, all you have given, and all the sacrifices you have made. Wishing you a life time of happiness, love and laughter.

In today's world, the term "best friend" is tossed around a lot. But while overused, it has its place. Someone you hang out with, play sports with, fix a car etc... But we all know friends can disappear or just drift apart.
That's why I'm glad Moses is not my best friend, but my older brother. The man I can depend on for anything. Confide in. Celebrate all of life's milestones with. He's always there for his brother, an example he has taught me. I'm blessed to be able to be a part of this union, to see him the happiest he will ever be, and to celebrate the milestones that he and Kate have ahead of them."

Thank you for giving us the direction, insight & faith to what true love & happiness is, and the courage to allow us to know it's obtainable. The helping hand you extended to us made all the difference. Without you, our wedding wouldn't have been the dream that it will be. We will remember our special night for the rest of our lives, and we will always remember the impact you made on it. No amount of words could express our true thankfulness.
We appreciate every one of our friends who have been there for us on our wonderful journey. We feel especially lucky to have so many special people in our lives. We look forward to sharing many more happy occasions with you in the years to come!
