The silence has been broken! After a total whirlwind year for us (but boy, do we have some fun and awesome updates and changes coming your way!), we actually have some time to catch up on our blogging – and are we behind! Considering we only got through half of our 2013 weddings here on the blog, you’ll have to excuse the lack of non-real-wedding related posts for the rest of this year. We have to get everyone’s darling pics up and share the fun ideas and love! Every so often, we’ll try to throw in a unique idea or topic post, and at some point we’ll be ready to unveil all the new things we have in store for our 2015 clients and beyond, but for now, we hope you’re excited to see regular posting again!
Have a specific topic you’d love to see us write about soon? Share it with us in the comments!
For now, I have the privilege to share the lovely photos by Andre Nguyen Photography of a truly darling wedding in the hills of Woodside, Jessica and Chris’ special day!
What made Jessica and Chris’ wedding extra special was the intimate involvement of their families, in the ways they truly shined. For example, I had the privilege of attending their rehearsal dinner, lovingly hosted by Chris’ parents at their home. It honestly felt like one big family that evening, with jokes, smiles and down-to-earth comfortability. The most exciting familial component, however, was the venue itself – Jessica’s parents’ farm. There were details that we see at professional event venues, all handcrafted and made just for this day. It was the perfect combination of rustic, simple and elegant.
Jessica won the prize for perhaps the calmest and happiest bride I’d ever seen – right down to the moments before the ceremony! It was truly a day of joy for everyone. Jessica’s dad gave a toast that had everyone in stitches, and the family dog even participated in a toast!
The wedding went so well, and the homemade venue was so beautiful, that I had the pleasure of meeting with Jessica’s parents and advising them to open up their farm as a venue! They now host weddings for couples other than their daughter – and we’d love to work there again! You can check them out at http://www.
Congratulations again to Jessica and Chris!
