We’ve got a two parter of pretty coming your way, and it’s all sitting in this oh-so-gorgeous post. This sweet as they come couple sent over their engagement session AND their wedding captured by Christina McNeill, and well, we fell in love with both. So be sure to soak up more of their e-sesh here, and just wait until you see their wedding waiting for you below…
See? How could you not fall in love with these two? Your love affair is about to go off the charts, because with one look at their stunning Villa Montalvo wedding (once again beautifully captured by Christina McNeill) you’ll know precisely why we just can’t get enough. Join us in here for more.
From the Bride…Our best man Josh Rose introduced us in 2010. I went to HS with Josh and Nick has known Josh since he was 9. From the beginning we knew that family and fun were the most important components of our wedding. We both live in San Francisco, but chose to have our wedding at Villa Montalvo near my hometown of Los Gatos. We knew we wanted a vintage theme and I suggested a Great Gatsby vibe. We chose black, gold and white since they are such classic colors and added feathers to go with the 1920’s décor.
My favorite moment of our wedding was when the last song came on. It was “Last Night on Earth” by Green Day and its one of our favorites. I saw Nick clawing through the crowd trying to find me for a last spin and he yelled out “where’s my wife??” It was the first time I had heard him use the phrase and I had to smile. All of the guests came together for the song and it was such a wonderful feeling having so much support for us on that special day.
If I could offer any advice, I’d say: sit back and really enjoy all that you worked so hard for. All those months of planning and running around like a crazy person really does pay off. I had a few moments were I almost went nuts but luckily I was surrounded by a few recent brides and they kept me grounded. I reminded myself that this day was about us. It wasn’t the décor, music or food and that thought made all stress sort of melt away.
