Eunice Moyle and Daniel James worked around the corner from each other in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood, eating -- but never meeting -- at the same Mexican restaurant. Eunice, meanwhile, reluctantly agreed to try three months of online dating at the urging of her sister. Her self-imposed deadline quickly arrived, and she was poised to log out of the site forever when Daniel James came a-courting. A year and a half later, Daniel proposed.

Calligrapher Michele Papineau, papineaucalligraphy.com hand lettered all of the cracker bands with guests' names.
