From Hazelnut Photography… Dena and John are kind, gracious, beautiful people. They are creative, funny and incredibly sweet. They are perfect for each other, and their wedding was perfect for them. They were married at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu in a sweet ceremony that officiated by Dena’s father. The reception was a labor of love, and each detail handmade was with such care to represent the couple. Dena’s mother actually sewed every single napkin! She also made all of the table runners, the bunting, the happy day ribbons and Dena’s garter. The card box was actually Dena’s’ great-grandmother’s suitcase, rehabilitated beautifully by her mother! Catering was provided by one of their favorite restaurants, Chichen Itza. My favorite detail though was John’s gift to Dena: a cheese platter engraved with the name of their amateur cheese shop, her favorite cheese and a beautiful ring that would serve as her something blue. Adorable! But perhaps the tastiest detail, John had the idea for and made the strawberry-infused “tequila por amante (tequila for lovers)”! A shot was given to each guest as the maid of honor and best man toasted the bride and groom! It was a beautiful day surround by nature and filled with love — dare I say it, a perfect wedding day!
