Wedding at the Family Estate in the Almaden Valley

Annabel and Tylon were married at the family estate in the Almaden Valley, south of San Jose on July 15, 2017.  They wanted the wedding to be a romantic, semi formal affair, with a slight Victorian look.  The estate, with it’s tree-lined creek and large shaded lawn was the perfect place.  The bride was gorgeous in her Amelia Sposa gown and the groom was handsome in a white dinner jacket.  Even the cake looked regal.   Photography: Tony Fitzgerald Photography  |  Venue:  Hoge Residence |  Planner:  Heather Hoge  |  Catering: Gunthers Restaurant and Catering  | Cake: Bay Cakes Design  |  Floral Design: Dubon Floral Design  |  Tables, Chairs, and Linens:  Moggia Events  |  DJ: Songman Entertainment  |  Dress: Amelia Sposa

Wedding at Mission San Juan Bautista

Susan and Arrin were married in the historic mission at San Juan Bautista on April 22, 2017.  They wanted the wedding to be romantic and timeless and thought the historic mission, with it’s rose garden courtyard, was the perfect place.  Susan is from Scotland, and brother, sister and close friend traveled all the way from Scotland for the wedding.  She wore a long champagne gown with vintage lace and amazing flowery sleeves.  A highland bagpiper played as she walked the corridor to the mission doors and entered, starting the ceremony with a regal entrance.  After a short receiving line in the rose garden, the guests were led by the bagpiper to the reception at Casa Maria.       Photography: Tony Fitzgerald Photography  |  Venue:  Mission San Juan Bautista  |  Catering and Cake: Classic Catering  | Bagpiper: Lynne S.

Fairytale wedding in Los Gatos | Nestldown

Janine and David met at a reunion a few years ago, and it was clear that they were meant to be together. They were wed at the lovely Nestldown wedding venue in Los Gatos on a beautiful July day.  Both Janine and David love the redwoods and there was a redwood theme weaving it’s way through the wedding.  The programs were DIY graphic on brown paper and miniature photos and wooden clothes pins.  The guests signed a large wooden plank and received a parting gift in handcrafted wooden boxes.  After the ceremony in the outdoor natural redwood “chapel” in front of the lake, the miniature train delivered the couple to the cocktail hour in the foxglove meadow.  They had an area for playing bocci and a decorated stand with a blackboard for taking photos and writing well wishes for the couple.  Photos were taken by the lake and in the redwood grove and in front of the fairytale cottage.  Coming from an Italian family, Janine made special Italian cookies for the occasion.  Farm tables were …
