Noemi (Becky) and Angel were married at the Ainsworth House and Gardens.  It was the first wedding of the year held under the giant sequoia next to the grand old victorian that sits as the centerpiece to this beautiful estate. What a magnificent backdrop to their colorful and joyful celebration.

Becky's Father spoke the ceremony. It was heartfelt and wonderful judging by the expressions on peoples faces and the tears of joy.  Though, not being very knowledgable in spanish, that is just a guess, . . .

Family and friends gathered and expressed their love and devotion.  There was lots of color, laughter, great food, delicious cakes and many wonderful stories.

Thanks for the fun day guys!

Michelle and Todd were married on Saturday February 23, 2013 at the Ainsworth House and Gardens. The event was small in numbers but large in love and emotion, with close family and friends wishing Michelle and Todd the best in their new lives together.

We had just enough of a break in the weather to sneak out for a few romantic snuggly shots on the porch. Then we played with the bridal party upstairs before joining the rest of the family in the conservatory for family formals.

The ceremony was presented by Rev. Kevin Yell and tears were flowing from several family members as Michelle and Todd spoke there vows to each other. How sweet they were.

The bouquets, boutineers and floral accents were created by Kay Deitl at Flowers for you.  The event was catered by Chef du Jour. The dj/MC for the day was Stephen from Media Jockeys / Celebration Music and Events.
