From The Bride… Clear to anyone that knows me, I am definitely a planner. Lucky for me, Chris and I had a 16 month engagement (due to the popularity of the Mission at Santa Clara). This allowed lots of time to articulate every detail of our wedding. I used the beautiful weddings shown on Style Me Pretty and created a Pinterest account solely to help plan our wedding.

My mom and I flew to Monique Lhuillier in Los Angeles on a few occasions. I kept debating on a dress and worked with their associates to re-design one of my favorites to become my dream dress. My dress was a labor of love. I didn’t see the final dress until I put it on, on my wedding day. Jessica Burke’s beautiful photography captured the moment perfectly.

We wanted our wedding to be traditional, classic and beautiful. We both attended Santa Clara University, so getting married at the Mission was an obvious choice. The Adobe Lodge was the only reception venue we looked at. We loved the idea that our guests could walk straight from the ceremony to cocktail hour in the beautiful mission gardens.

With 16 months to plan, and Trisha Deans help, we found the perfect group of vendors who helped us craft the vision of our wedding. Kerry at Olive and Emerald did an amazing job producing the color palette and theme for our wedding. Her designs became the inspiration for our flowers and linens, provided by Michael Daigian Design and La Tavola Linens. The banana cake from Icing on the Cake was a childhood favorite of ours, our guests must have also enjoyed it because there was not a slice left! I worked at The Creamery in Palo Alto for many years and they were kind enough to provide the whoopie pies for our wedding favors. In an ode to Chris’s favorite meal, we served grilled cheese and tater tots for our late night snack.

The weather could not have been more perfect for our outdoor July wedding. The backdrop of the Mission and historic olive trees provided the serene and intimate feeling that we were hoping to achieve. Jessica’s photography highlighted everything we loved about the most memorable day of our lives.
