Jay + I photographed Alexa + Steve’s Wedding at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton. We first met Alexa + Steve when they drove up from their home in the Bay Area to our property for their Grass Valley engagement session. These two are just great – so much fun and a terrific couple. On their Wedding Day, it was clear that they come from truly wonderful families and are surrounded by many life-long friends.
Alexa wore a gorgeous Maggie Sottero Gown and Jamie + Jessi of JMichelle Beauty + Le Reve Salon did a beautiful job tending to Alexa’s hair + make-up. Alexa + Steve met eyes when the large wooden doors into The Estate Room opened and Steve’s Dad presided over the ceremony. The couple wrote their own vows and there weren’t many dry eyes in the room. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed an assortment of domestic and imported cheeses, salamis, signature his and her cocktails, and a generous selection of Cuban Cigars during cocktail hour.
The Ballroom greeted guests with truly beautiful tablescapes of crystal candelabras, gorgeous floral arrangements of white roses + hydrangeas created by Jinger Leonard from the Flower House, gold tablecloths and gold sequin runners. Our newlyweds enjoyed a night of dancing and a donut flambé station later in the evening. Yum! Here is a selection of our favorite images from their beautiful wedding day.
