This next same sex wedding came to me from the oh-so-talented Alison of Alison Events in San Francisco...


all of these amazing photos were taken by Adi Nevo

I am not usually a fan of purple...but WOW. This wedding is so super chic, so super elegant. I absolutely love it. With the raspberry and natural green accents paired against the stark white linens, the grass and the pristine blue's just so smart.

A few more details from Alison...

Joe and Lallo got married in Sonoma County at a private estate located on a lavender farm. They exchanged vows under a tree lined grassy field and enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as a Brazilian singer performed some of their favorite Bebel Gilberto songs. Being Brazilian, Joe and Lallo had many guests who traveled far to come and support them in their union.

The menu was fresh and local organic Californian cuisine. They served local fish, flank steak and chicken right from the grill and a variety of green salads for dinner family style. And of course caipirinhas were flowing all night long. They had several different flavored cakes with an adorable cake topper of two grooms which Alison gave them as a wedding present.

The tables lined both sides of the pool and were dressed with a slate grey floor length linen and the white linen napkins were then tied with lavender ribbon and a lavender sprig was placed inside. The flowers were designed and created by the couple and placed in beautiful white ceramic containers.

Their dogs who walked down the aisle and they were their ring bearers....and their officiant was there homestay mother from when they both came to the US to study abroad. The invites were designed by Lallo.
