James and Jamee’s Story
(Experience their wedding here)
James and Jamee met at a tree house party in the beautiful mountains of Malibu in the summer of 2013, just a week after Jamee graduated from UCLA with her Ph.D. in neuroscience. James joined a singing circle that Jamee was leading and their souls immediately had a kismet connection. However, it wasn’t until they met for lunch on September 16th, 2013 that they fell in love. It was ‘love at first date.’
One year later, they were engaged under a Manzanita tree in Sequoia national forest surrounded by a circle of their closest friends. About one year after that, on June 27th, 2015, they became husband and wife during a Mid-Summer Day’s Dream love celebration that they threw at a private residence in the Hollywood hills, complete with fire dancers, spoken word, costumes, incredible music and barefoot dancing under the stars.
In reflecting upon that day and their love, James proclaimed, “Our cup overflows, and, therefore, our purpose is to give back.” James and Jamee are on a mission to ‘give back’ in a variety of ways, including creating uplifting TV shows, writing empowering books, developing and leading transformational workshops, working abroad with philanthropic groups, educating others on natural forms of wellness, and writing and performing inspiring music.
Join them on their journey, and be a part of their movement of living an inspired life with purpose.
