Please join Alison & Emerson from August 28-30, 2015 as we celebrate our wedding in Rancho Cicada, CA.
Emerson was born in San Francisco and grew up with 8 brothers and sisters. When he was 18, he moved to Chicago and started his first business selling wholesale products to retail shops. During the many ups and downs of running a company, Emerson found that solving problems and creating value in the world is what drives him. Since then, he has started 3 companies and although solving big problems are what drives him, it turns out that his true passion is solving those problems with his true life partner, Alison.
Alison grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico, inspired by art and nature. She studied at Tulane in New Orleans, and spent time traveling and living in Brazil and China before moving to San Francisco in 2009. She fell in love with the people, culture, and landscapes of the Bay Area, and is excited to be marrying a San Francisco native! Today, she lives in Oakland and works at Flipcause along with Emerson. She spends her time making art, playing the ukulele, seeing live music, and catching waves in the Pacific.
Emerson & Alison
It all began in 2011, at a 4th of July rooftop party. We met eyes on the dance floor, hit it off immediately, and the rest... was fireworks. We have already lived a seeming lifetime together, from a death-defying experience, to road-tripping across the US in our van Bessie Lou, to starting a business together, to raising our new pup, Lucy. We keep it real by inventing things, camping, and making up songs and freestyles together. We were engaged in June 2014, and are excited to spend our wedding weekend with everyone we love in a relaxed, natural setting!
