    [Introducing Guest of a Guest's "The Wedding Party"]

    Jes Gordon and Bill Marmor: (Pictured above). "By the time Jes Gordon was 15, she was already working as a florist. At 25, she was juggling multiple weddings every weekend at Tavern on the Green. And eight months into that job, she transferred her blazing energy and her contact list into her own wedding- and event-planning business in New York." This ADD party planner and a divorced TV commercial editor met on the treadmills at a gym in LA, they couldn't have guessed that they had found their life partners. They were married in Santa Barbara, CA.
