We here at Mashery take work-life balance seriously. Just because our launch is only a couple weeks away doesn't mean that we can't take time out for important life events - it just means that our team is strong enough to keep things moving.
So this weekend I had the pleasure of heading down to Cabo for the wedding of Mashery co-founder Kirsten Spoljaric to David Coyle. The wedding party included two other team members - Kirsten's sister Carly, who does some admin support for us, and our QA contractor Melissa Stoffregen, who is making sure that everything we launch works the way it is supposed to.
The ceremony was beautiful, and I had the great opportunity to meet Kirsten and Dave's family and friends. What a treat!
Happily, the wedding took place at the Sheraton Los Cabos, which is very tech-entrepreneur-friendly with high speed internet in all the rooms and wi-fi in all lobbies, restaurants, bars, pool areas and even on the beach. Although Kirsten managed to avoid getting online on her wedding day, I did receive some emails from her last night...I knew she couldn't stay away from Mashery too long...
The picture below shows Melissa at the far end, and Carly standing between the bride and the flower girl, who of course stole the show.
