I've known Tassia for a couple of years now because she has been a bridesmaid in two of our past weddings (Megan & Neema and Brittany & Justin) and she's an absolute doll! She helped us wrangle missing groomsmen, gave wonderful speeches, and helped keep everyone in line. So naturally when she asked us to help with her wedding, we raised our hands and celebrated!
This girl has class and so does her adorable hubby Jared, so they chose the historic Grand Island Mansion outside of Sacramento and our jaw dropped when we saw the place - gorgeous gardens, amazing fountains and a stunning interior. Needless to say, we had a high bar to meet with the design and production of this wedding, so we started with black tie. The gals wore dresses that looked as if they had come out of Carrie Bradshaw's closet and the guys dressed in clean black and white tuxes. The design was simple, yet classy: gold chargers, lush floral garlands, simple stationery, and black velvet finishes.
Not only did these two want a beautiful wedding, but they wanted an unforgettable dance party and plenty of delicious cocktails. With a playlist complete with Beyonce and Britney, Pear Ginger Martinis and Tequila Shots, an awesome guest list, and a Spinning Game Wheel, it was a party! (We were even out dancing for a song or two with our favorite former brides.) Everyone danced the night away, munched on SF's favorite Sift cupcakes, and then sent the newlyweds off with a stunning sparkler exit.
Thank you both for being awesome and for letting us help you create your BIG day!
