Brittany & Patrick’s Wedding

Two of my closest friends tied the knot in beautiful Utah! :-) I’m at a loss for words of how perfect this day was, and how much these two mean to me, so rather than type up a storm I’ll stick to what I know best and let the pictures do most of the talking.

Brittany & Patrick - Waldorf Astoria Park City WeddingBrittany and Patrick’s wedding took place at the gorgeous Waldorf Astoria in Park City, where they said their vows in a quiet, serene setting of green grass, mountains, and perfect blue skies. Seeing these two finally get hitched brought out the tears in all of us. Brittany & Patrick - Waldorf Astoria Park City Wedding

To add some ‘sugar’ to the proverbial (wedding!) cake, Lara and Allan hired the talented Kristen Jensen & team of Sugar Rush Events to work their magic behind the scenes, ensuring the entire day went flawless.

Their ceremony and reception were held at Cornerstone Gardens and included one of the sweetest exchange of vows I have ever heard. (Seriously, Lara… I may need some pointers from you guys down the line!)

Pictured above are special pocket watches Allan hand-picked for each of his groomsmen. And as for Lara’s bridesmaids, she opted to have them carry super cute parasols in lieu of bouquets.Lara & Allan's Cornerstone Gardens - Sonoma California WeddingLara & Allan's Cornerstone Vineyard - Sonoma California WeddingTheir venue, Cornerstone Gardens, also matched perfectly with their fun, off-beat style and personalities. Not only are the grounds beautiful, but they’re filled with unique gardens and art installations, such as this asian-inspired piece titled ‘Red Lantern‘ that rests over a tranquil lotus pond. Lara & Allan's Cornerstone Gardens - Sonoma California WeddingFollowing the ceremony, guests enjoyed a delicious tented al fresco dinner before dancing the night away in celebration of the new Mr. & Mrs!

I couldn’t wait to share Udyogi & Nimish’s joyful, vibrant, multi-cultural wedding day. :-) It was filled with laughter and rich traditions. To represent the joining of their two cultures and families, they celebrated with two ceremonies – Hindu and Sri Lankan – set against a lush garden backdrop at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas

The afternoon started with the gathering of close family and friends who travelled from afar to witness and join in the festivities.

Regina & Mike’s Wedding in St. Martin

Gina & Mike - St. Martin Caribbean WeddingRegina and Mike are adventurous spirits who love being outside and exploring new places together. Their current home is in San Francisco, but they share the dream of one day making enough money to live on a yacht and travel the world! So it was quite fitting when they decided to hold an intimate destination wedding that mixed all their favorite things with all their favorite people. Their wedding took place in the Caribbean on an island that held special significance to them – ‘The Friendly Island’ of St. Martin! Mike’s parents live there, so it’s a place they have spent many summers together. And it’s also where, five years ago, Mike asked Regina for her hand in marriage with a surprise proposal in Philipsburg. They just knew that it would also be the perfect place to finally say ‘I do’!

Gina & Mike - St. Martin Caribbean WeddingGina & Mike - St. Martin Caribbean WeddingGina & Mike - St. Martin Caribbean WeddingGina & Mike - St. Martin Caribbean WeddingGina and Mike said their vows on the sandy shore of Le Sand Beach in Baie Nettle (the French side of St. Martin). To add to the intimate nature of their wedding, Mike’s brother had the honor of officiating the ceremony.
