We celebrated the first day of May with an intimate wedding for Andrew and Joseph.  This was a day with international flair, as Joseph’s family joined us “virtually” all the way from the U.K to participate in both the ceremony (with a lovely reading done by Joseph’s mother via Zoom! and a toast that knew no borders!).  Andrew and Joseph chose the wedding decor inspiration from the architect Frank Lloyd Wright.  They brought special linens in colors of navy and light blue, and coordinated both their suits and wedding details to this pretty color scheme, with cheerful accents of yellow for an added pop!  After a lovely outdoor ceremony, with readings presented by both the father of Groom Andrew, and the mother of Groom Joseph, we celebrated with cake and champagne, and a little swing dancing thrown in for good measure!  We had lots of fun taking photos on the grounds, and then wound our way up the mountain for some epic wedding photos on Skyline drive.  It was lovely to get to know both of our grooms during the wedding planning process, and truly delightful to see their vision come to life on their wedding day!  They both looked amazingly handsome, and so very much in love!  What a beautiful day to be a part of.  I am so excited to share a little sneak peek of favorite moments from a magnificent day…

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
