The most important wedding to any bride is their own.... and so this post on my beloved blog is MY favorite wedding because I was the bride!!!
I was only half crazy when I decided to do SOME of the wedding flowers which included all the personal flowers for 10 pairs of sponsors bouquets and boutonnieres, 6 bridesmaids bouquets, 6 groomsmen boutonnieres, 2 flower girls pomanders, a ring bearer floral box, 2 moms bouquets and a dad's boutonniere.... add to that 24 pew arrangements. CRAZY, I tell you CRAZY!!!! A million thanks to our family and friends who helped us out!!! Seriously, my advice... don't do your own flowers if you have a "sizable" wedding!!! You want to be able to just relax and enjoy the time leading up to your wedding day!!! Seriously!!!!
Luckily, I'm honored to have mentors who graciously helped with arranging my bouquet and the centerpieces at the reception.
So... we had the most amazing day filled with 324 of our closest family and friends. The ceremony was held at the church I grew up in, St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church in Vallejo, California and we completely transformed our reception space at Delta Breeze on Travis Air Force Base. We had THE BEST TEAM of wedding vendors from all over the Bay Area!!! The wonderful Chilou with Events by Chilou made sure the day ran smoothly. Our beautiful cake was designed by the super talented Cheryl Lew from Montclaire Baking. Lighting by my favorite DJ,Impact Sounds. Rentals by Classic Party Rentals in Napa and our guests partied on down to the amazing D'Groove Band!! Videography byBlue Dolpin Productions. And we were honored to have Sam Hassas from Hassas Photography capture our day with amazing images!!
Future brides.... I hope to help make your wedding day as special to you as ours meant to the both of us!!
