Martinelli Wedding [Preview]

Our good friends Chris and Mollie were married this weekend at one of the most personal, beautiful, and timeless weddings I have ever been a part of. It was a rainy, romantic day at a place called “Paradise Valley.”

The gorgeous wedding rings and the bride’s pearls, which she borrowed from her grandmother.

There’s nothing like a fall wedding and the beautiful colors that inspires.

The bride’s bouquet contained hydrangeas from the wedding site and succulents from their home. Amazing combination with a sentimental element.

The bride’s parents walked her down the aisle – note the groom’s face – does he look like the happiest man on earth?

The beautiful ceremony had a soundtrack of the lightly falling rain.


The first kiss!


The newlyweds…..



Mollie’s wedding dress is actually her mother’s dress from 42 years ago. It was such a perfect dress for Mollie and fit her beautifully.

So elegant and so timeless. I love it!

Oh, no! Bridezilla!

The groom and his mother.

Their first dance…



Every detail of this day had a story. The menu was unbelievable – crab, abalone, muscles, pork and more food than the guests could ever dream of eating in one day. The amazing part? The groom was on a boat the day before racing the clock to catch most of our cuisine himself.

The German chocolate wedding cake was created by the bride’s sister and was just beautiful.



And, as if all that food and that gorgeous cake wasn’t enough, there was also a pie table with a variety of homemade mouth-watering pies.

The favors? Nothing boring here – homemade jams for the guests to enjoy!

Chris works for the fire department, so even the wine had a story.

This guest happened to catch my eye… she loved holding the bride’s bouquet.

An autumn wedding in paradise. What more can you ask for?

Congratulations, Chris and Mollie!
