This wedding was a true labor of love for Rene & Niki Delacueva, owners of R. Jack Balthazar. Longtime friends of the groom, John, we had imagined and re-imagined his wedding for many years…long before he found Ann!


The overall design was inspired by John & Ann’s love of the outdoors, their modern style, a bold color palette inspired by the sunset, and nods to their Chinese ancestry… The feeling was warm, inviting, and gracious as if they were entertaining guests in their home …

What an awesome reflection of love! Our warmest wishes to Ann & John! See the whole SMP wedding gallery here.

We’ll be back in a few with another of R. Jack Balthazar’s fantastic weddings!  While you wait, take a look at some of the “tranformations” that they’ve done ~ some incredible before and after photos on their website. Seriously incredible.
