With the roar of the Long Beach Grand Prix in the background, Providence TrinityCare Hospice Foundation celebrated with more than 120 long-time friends and donors. A special honor this year was bestowed upon the Simmons Family — Jack and Wendy, Brendan, Katie and Sal — for their dedication to and heartfelt support of Providence TrinityCare Hospice and specifically TrinityKids Care, the only dedicated, pediatric hospice program for infants, children and adolescents, and their families in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

The beautiful outdoor ceremony was alive with music as the couple exchanged vows to a joyous gathering of family and friends. At the reception, a slideshow was shortened to make room for a “Dancing with the Stars” mock video where the couple discussed the big first dance they were about to perform, a medley of styles choreographed by the bride, a professional dancer. The night was full of performances, from world-class salsa dancers to a groomsman pas de deux with a professional ballet dancer. Photography by Joanne Distaso Photography, jodistaso.com.
