There are few things in this world that we love more than a wedding that is perfectly planned and designed to highlight the special couple. To bring out their personalities. To share their love of each other and love of style with their nearest and dearest. One Fine Day Events does this phenomenally. In this wedding, captured by Kate Webber Photography, she planned a sunny, happy affair for two sweet lovebirds, and every single detail is perfectly them!
While Ted is from Connecticut and AJ is from Bermuda they both live in San Francisco. They met sailing against one another in college - Ted was on the sailing team at Stanford and AJ was on the sailing team at Tufts University in Boston. While they knew each other in college they didn't start dating until AJ moved to San Francisco after graduating from college. After dating for six years including a brief long distance stint while AJ went back to business school in Boston, Ted Proposed while on a hike near Mount Tam.

The inspiration for the wedding came from AJ’s love for modern design, pop art, and bright colors. She is also a very good designer and created the motif for the wedding – two yellow lovebirds on a turquoise backdrop! These little guys appeared on the cocktail napkins, wedding invitation, escort cards, and menus.

During the ceremony, the couple decided to mix ‘their’ waters. This was symbolic of their love for water sports and the areas they both grew up in. AJ’s parents collected Bermuda’s beautiful crystal clear water and Ted’s parents collected some Long Island Sound water before flying out for the wedding! During the ceremony, the two containers of water were combined together!

Another cool touch was that instead of a videographer, Ted got all of his groomsmen GoPro cameras which they mounted on their heads during the party... they ended up getting some awesome footage. There is a great picture of Ted's best friends wearing their go pros at the reception. AJ gave her bridesmaids bright pink watches to match the wedding colors.

The couples favorite part of the wedding day was definitely the band and stage diving, because when else can you stage dive and feel confident that people will catch you!
