Initially set up by a family member, Kathleen and Ryan quickly fell in love over their long-distance relationship that consisted of phone calls, texts, and Skyping while he was in Texas and she was in California. After months of face-timing and trips to one state or the other, Kathleen made the leap and moved to Texas to be with Ryan. Once the question was popped visions of the perfect California wedding began to swirl and the couple was set on a California destination wedding!
We met the couple over Skype (which we thought was quite fitting given the way their relationship began!) and instantly fell in love with them and their vision. Mission Santa Clara would be the location of their quintessential California wedding and we would later decide on the San Jose Fairmont for the reception. A dusty slate blue and shades of blush and cream were combined to provide our palette for the day which tied together the colors of the Mission and the ballroom seamlessly.
