If you are just now joining us, we are featuring the prettiest wedding that Gia Canali, photographer extraordinaire, recently sent us. Here are a few more bits of eye candy and inspiration (this is my favorite part of today's feature by the way)....

From Gia Canali...

The bride and groom had participated in a group wedding ceremony (27 couples!!) at a Catholic Cathedral in Santa Fe in the spring.  So this party was essentially a reception.  They exchanged rings, had a champagne toast ... then a processional through the neighborhood to the Old Venice Restaurant.  We loved the handmade chocolates made by a local chocolatier from a hundred year old recipe (which alas were less photogenic than they were delicious).  There was a local band that played music during dinner and for a little dancing. We also particularly loved the floral emphasis throughout the design of the wedding.

The bride's parents home was chock full of art by all the various artists in the family, including the hand-painted furniture by Jessie that's in the background of some of the detail shots.  Everybody carried and waved streamers on the processional.
