J + J Wedding | Rahlston Hall Mansion | Belmont

I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer's sister, Emily who was married at the The Palm Event Center in Pleasanton earlier this year. You could say that the family was very busy year with the planning of two weddings at to beautiful locations. Jennifer chose The Rahlston Hall Mansion for her wedding. This was my first time there and it's beautiful!

Venue: Rahlston Hall Mansion

V + R | Saint Claire Hotel | San Jose

I loved working with Vu and Robert! They wanted something fun and modern so we went with the colors pewter and yellow with touches of white. One of my favorite quotes from the year was from Vu. She told me she wanted a "big a$$ bouquet". I was afraid with her tiny frame that she would be overwhelmed. But she rocked the big bouquet with style.

Ceremony: Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph
Reception: Sainte Claire Hotel in San Jose

J + A Wedding | Regency Center | San Francisco | Part II

Here are some more photos of Jessica Alex's beautiful wedding at the Regency Center in San Francisco.

Jessica and Alex made the manzanita branch centerpieces and I accented them with the flowers around the base.

They had long banquet tables so I did a variety of centerpieces in white and pink.

Here are the invitations that they made. Jessica designed the invitations and Alex made the pocketfold. He made each one by hand!
