Vintage Garden done well

•July 10, 2010 • Leave a Comment

On Saturday, July 3, 2010 high school sweethearts, Trang and Kemp, tied the knot at the newly renovated Palm Event Center in Pleasanton.   Creative drapery and lighting were used by Enhanced Lighting to hid and make the reception area even more unique.  The ceremony was officiated by the groom’s grandfather and took place facing the vast vineyard with perfect weather. A quartet of musicians played beautifully as Trang walked down the isle in her sparkling European gown and birdcage style veil. From the “old-school” props for the photo booth to the antique photos and eclectic part set-up centerpieces, this soft vintage themed wedding dazzled guests down to every last finite detail. Centerpieces included antique books, dollies and intricately designed handkerchiefs, intertwined with the fabulous garden florals in vintage containers by the florist (Cherries).  It was a perfect meld of DIY with the finishing touches of a professional florist.

The buffet-style dessert table was a sight to be seen with sweets ranging from mini-cupcakes from Shannie cakes,rock candy and even vegan cupcakes. The favors were a individual cartons of delicious raspberries and blackberries with hand made “Merci Merci” sticks in them.  Trang and Kemp’s wedding cake looked amazing from Torino Baking and their topper, featured above, was a lovely pair of little bride and groom penguins. It was adorable! The night ended with drinks, dancing and the newlyweds pulling away in their vintage Cadillac with the words “Just Married” hanging off the back. It was a perfect end to this superb evening…with music so perfect by Chocolate Sound, they extended the evening for another hour.

We will be sure to share fabulous photos later from Simply Bloom Photography.
