A few weeks ago, Abby featured a wedding by Martha Andrews that was just loaded with floral gorgeousness. So we were thrilled to receive today’s wedding from Martha ~ a wedding and reception at the historic Firehouse Restaurant in Old Sacramento…
Their photographer, Jessica, at Stout Photography sent us this info about the couple and the day …
Dave and Jenny’s wedding was a long awaited, MUCH anticipated, exclusive event of the year! My good friend and fellow photographer friend Dave married his high school sweetheart and mother of his two beautiful children at the Firehouse Restaurant in Old Sacramento. Wow, so much to say! First of all, I’ll start by saying there was an absolute role-reversal in planning this wedding. Dave (admittedly) was the “Bride”, handling all the vendor selections, planning and details. With a little push in the right direction from me, he got in touch with Martha Andrews of Blooms. Together, they took his and Jenny’s ideas and added Martha’s artistry!
And from Martha …
The Firehouse Restaurant is an institution in town, where law makers, governors etc… frequent. It really WAS originally a firehouse! Jenny and Dave started the day off in downtown Sacramento, a lovely old building that has been converted into a boutique hotel ~ The Citizen Hotel. The groom, an aspiring photographer basically gave me a color scheme and told me to do whatever I wanted because he trusted me. I went with twigs hung with crystals and votive candles, then candles embedded in the flower base. Down the aisle I floated orchids in gel and topped it off with floating candles. I made the flower girl basket out of flowers. I hung crystal votives in the trees surrounding the courtyard and flowers in the fountain.
