Palm Event Center Wedding–Cathy & Brian3:50 PM
All things sweet with no detail left unconsidered: the wedding of Cathy & Brian!
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Cathy and Brian’s wedding in Northern California. Let me just start by saying one thing…Cathy and Brian are incredibly DIY-savvy and imaginative; so much so, that their wedding was nothing short of a sweet wonderland of sheer creativity. Thoroughly envisioned appliques, all highly personalized, adorned the Palm Event Center space. Custom calligraphy signage greeted the guests upon arrival and followed them to the reception where everything from the seating charts to the featured cocktails, to the cupcake dessert bar were by-design (cupcakes which the bride made by the way…she is a cake boss). And speaking of cakes, Brian’s affinity for the world of Harry Potter netted him a delicious surprise upon visiting the ballroom: his very own Gryffindor-themed groom’s cake complete with handmade bride & groom cake toppers!
And to complement the details and decor, we had our bride and groom…who were willing and excited to explore all the gorgeous light surrounding the venue. A beautifully executed first look in the cypress lined courtyard ended up pairing extremely well with a series of sunset portraits shot in the vineyard next door.
Oh yeah, and they had flambéed donuts. Yes, donuts on fire. Amazing.
