My love for each and every detail of this affair is far beyond that of the average wedding. It's more like OBSESSION. But even obsession is a total understatement when it comes to the cake. Oh that shiny, happy geometric laden confectionery treat. Just wait until you lay your eyes on that gorgeousness crafted by Sugar Butter Flour. And all of the images by Harrison Long Photography? Those are pretty stinkin gorgeous too. All in all this is a wedding FULL of heart and a certain je ne sais quoi that speaks to the soul. Plus the color palette is bananas.

From the Bride...Matt and I became engaged in New York after 3 years together, and I knew right away that I wanted to get married in my home town Los Gatos, California. We wanted to make sure our wedding would be unique, CONTEMPORARY and reflect the interests we share as a couple (candy bar, hip hop 1st dance, ping-pong table, golfing, dance off, and photobooth). Having our cocktail hour, and reception in my parent's backyard was always a dream of mine, and sure enough my dream became a reality!!!! It was the PERFECT day, and the most PERFECT wedding ever!!!
From ...Hailing all the way from New York, Caroline and Matt brought the party to the west coast! These two resident Manhattanites were wed in their home city of Los Gatos. Their wedding was nothing short of spectacular! From the beautiful Catholic church, to the SF cable cars, to the lovely outdoor reception – their celebration was certainly a classy one. Everything was wonderfully elegant and captured the fun & lively personalities of Caroline and Matt. These two did an amazing job of mixing the sophisticated exuberant energy of New York with the class of Los Gatos. The end result was an awesome celebration. Thanks for having Rob and myself along with you on your special day, we had a blast! Here are a few photos to share from the day!
Midway through the reception, Caroline grabbed the mic and announced a dance off competition between the best man, the father of the groom and some of the groomsmen. While it was a huge surprise to all the guests, it was probably an even greater surprise to the contestants whom had no idea this was going to happen! Caroline’s too cute, at the end of her announcement she mentioned that the winner would get a dance with her. It was an awesome ten minutes of cabbage patches and shirts flying through the air. At the end of the dance-off, the crowd voted with cheers and Caroline had her first dance with her new father-in-law.
