Hippy wedding the second time around

maria-elliott-couple ceremony chuppahWhen planning a second marriage priorities are usually different from the first time around.  Often the ceremony includes a blended family.   This wedding was no different and Fabrizio was included in the planning. 

Maria Jose and Eliot have been together a number of years.  When we talked about planning their main priority was great music.  The decor was….”we want a hippy wedding”.  What better way  to express this era but gerbera daisies and soft spring flowers.maria-elliott-gerbera daisies centerpiecesThe colors were tones of the bouquet were purple and lilac with a touch of white. maria-elliott-purple and white bouquet

Wine was also incorporated into the decor with the table numbers on wine bottles and the seating cards held by corks.  table numbers on wine bottlemaria-elliott-seating cards on corksThe venue was Campo Lago in the Central Valley.  There was a  beautiful garden and the large windows and outside terrace gave this group lots of space for dancing, talking and taking in nature. maria-elliott-campo lago loungeRather than one cake they had three.  Representing the bride, groom and Fabrizio the cake toppers were perfect.  They were brightly colored which complimented the theme.  Having three flavors nobody needed to compromise.maria-elliott-wedding cakesmaria-elliott-wedding cake toppers

Eliot is a musician and Maria Jose loves to dance.  The groom and his friends played at various times during the night.  Guests came from all over the world to help celebrate this wedding.  Besides hiring a  violinist and guitarist for the ceremony music they also hired a superb Latin band.  Once the music started everyone was on the dance floor. maria-elliott-violin maria-elliott-band maria-elliott-dancing
