These days, itâ€™s becoming a tradition to be non-traditional. For California couple Tanya and Adam, they were looking to have the launch party of a lifetime. And they did just that in a beautiful, off-beat venue in the heart of San Francisco. This couple wanted an extraordinary event. One that guests had never seen before and they surely wouldnâ€™t forget. Standing outside, surrounded by friends, family and infamous California palm trees, this couple said â€œI do.â€
Tanya wore a strapless lace gown with a sweetheart neckline that looked as if it were made just for her. Because of the simplicity of the gown, she paired it with a statement necklace and birdcage veil. And of course, she wore a sky-high pair of pink stilettos.
Her bridesmaids wore champagne-colored dresses with sweet bow accents at the waist and large pearl statement necklaces. They carried bouquets with hearty succulents and pink peonies.
Adam wore a dark gray three-piece suit and colorful striped tie. He wore a boutonniere made of various greenery and sported cool black sneakers. His groomsmen all went sans jackets and wore dark gray vests with white shirts and striped ties.
And as the couple kissed and made their way back down the aisle, everyone, including the new Mr. and Mrs., put on stunner shades for a funny, light-hearted exit.
Because the couple wanted the energy to flow and guests to have fun, they opted for a cocktail and appetizer reception. This allowed guests to mix and mingle and dance while still enjoying great food. The reception space had ample seating (with wedding-themed pillows!) for guests to take a break.
Their cake also boasted unique touches, as well. The couple opted for a single cake on top, with layers of cupcakes below. The cake was topped with an adorable banner that read â€œMr. and Mrs.â€ and a small fondant Shepherd peeking out from underneath the cake, clearly an homage to their beloved four-legged friend. The delicious cupcakes were dusted with small white sprinkles and the cake stand featured a large green succulent for a little added color.
This event was gorgeous and fun and proved that you can make your own traditions when it comes to your wedding. Tanya and Adam launched their lives together with loads of love and laughter. Best wishes!
