A Golden Family Wedding: Joanne + Alex´s say I do in California

First of, we just love how the bride and groom have incorporated their two adorable daughters into their spectacular wedding. Secondly, we adore the blush Vera Wang wedding dress the bride opted for – it is absolutely stunning on her. Lastly, we can´t get enough of the wooden-beamed marquee. The details are truly inspiring and beautifully captured by wedding photographer Jose Villa, who had this to say about the event:

On a warm May evening, in the gardens of Villa Sevillano, Joanne and Alex exchanged I dos. The couple’s 2 daughters, Penelope and Georgia, were amongst the seven flower girls. The processional included “Georgia on my Mind” and “Penny Lane” as an ode to each daughter. After the ceremony, guests mingled in the garden for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Paula Le Duc Fine Catering served some of the couple’s favorites: short rib beggars purses, halibut tartar, peking duck mini tacos and hand-rolled pizzas, grilled to order. Perfection!

After cocktails, guests moved down to the property’s polo field where they found the custom open-air structure built for dinner. There, under a billowing, gauzy fabric canopy, Renny & Reed, had decked each table with arrangements of lush peonies, blush garden roses, and clematis. The tables glimmered with rose gold accents. The light of the full moon shined down, casting the perfect glow for an intimate wedding dinner. Afterwards, guests were invited into the dance tent for Joanne & Alex’s first dance, a beautifully choreographed routine to Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” performed by Impulse, accompanied by a 10-piece string section. Drinks flowed from the custom boxwood bar built by Renny & Reed until it was time to bid the couple adieu. Joanne & Alex departed in a vintage Rolls Royce for the after-party at a local club that was transformed into a Moroccan lounge, complete with belly dancers and hookah lounge.
