Iris and Roger’s wedding celebration was as funky and as elegant as their wedding color of choice – ultraviolet, Pantone’s color of the year. Given that they had taken care of the “legalities” beforehand, these two were free to focus on sheer fun and party on their Wedding Day! They took full advantage of it. Iris wore a succession of no less than THREE dresses. For her nails, she chose an ice-blue polish, and in lieu of the standard (highly uncomfortable) wedding high heels, she wore plateau sneakers! The ceremony was sheer fun and laughter, and a good part of the reception was reserved for wild dancing.
They had chosen a spectacular venue – Thomas Fogarty Winery in the hills high above Silicon Valley – for an indoor/outdoor celebration. Given that their date was in early October, we were hoping for great warm and sunny weather, but there were no guarantees. We got lucky! It was a glorious Fall day, as beautiful as they come!
… and had her bridesmaids put a few finishing touches on her (after all, that’s what you have bridesmaids for!)
Here she is posing with her chic entourage, wearing dress no.1.
… all of them in fashionable shades of purple, of course, and Groom Roger and his groomsmen were likewise getting ready…
… sporting matching purple neckties and boutonnieres.
Ceremony chairs were set up and bunches of flowers tied to them, a glorious arch was set up and lavishly decorated…
… a pretty Welcome sign set up to greet the guests who were arriving via shuttle (by Destination Systems) …
Ready for the ceremony! The Espiritu Ensemble was playing wedding classics, giving this ceremony a decidedly elegant touch.
Soon enough it was time for dinner with a dramatic view all over Silicon Valley …
… with beautiful centerpieces in purple hues and tree-shaped table number holders with candy-filled globes (additional wedding favors) adorning the tables.
After dinner, Iris slipped into dress no. 3, and guests were treated to dessert: a delicious (and just as gorgeous-looking) purple wedding cake from Patisserie Gerhard Michler.
Nearly too pretty to cut into!
… and open dancing to the tunes of DJ Stefano Bortolin of Big Fun Disc Jockeys.
What else? Bouquet Toss, of course!
Keep partying and having fun on your shared journey, and our best wishes on your way, Iris and Roger!
