Saratoga, California Wedding by Lori Paladino Photography
October 6, 2010
United States

If you were to ask anyone that knows me, they would unquestionably confirm that I am a girly girl through and through. Hence why I was squealing with sheer delight as soon as I laid my eyes on this pretty wedding photographed by Lori Paladino. The blush pink details are so feminine and gorgeous and the gaggle of cute ballerinas just might be the cutest thing ever. But aside from ALL of that, I am completely mesmerized by Villa Montalvo, whose grounds look like they were plucked right from the Italian countryside and nestled in the Silicon Valley. It lends such a sophisticated and timeless backdrop to this soiree. Oh be still my heart. See the rest of this gorgeous day filled to the brim with pretty pinks in the gallery.

From Lori Paladino...

Nicole & John’s wedding at Villa Montalvo was full of timeless beauty – which is a perfect way to describe the sweet love these two have for one another. From the stunning vintage-inspired dress Nicole wore, to the framed family portraits on display of generations of marriages within Nicole & John’s families (400 years of marriage were displayed on that table – wow!), to a lovely soft pink palette of gorgeous floral arrangements, to inspired place cards designed by Nicole’s talented sister, so many personal touches that made their day so easy to connect to, and so much fun to photograph. Monarch butterflies were released as Nicole & John shared their first kiss as husband & wife! Nicole & John, and their families, not only created an atmosphere that was beautiful to behold, they carefully thought out ways to make the evening incredibly fun for their guests: delicious food, an amazing band, even a super fun photo booth to encourage lots of great pictures with their guests. But as usual, words fail to capture the sweetness of this day: instead we invite you to view some highlights of the day.
