Aaaaaah, what can be said about Francine and Danny? They're just the most lovely couple and were such a breath of fresh air to work with. Right from the start, we know we were going to love them. They said they were into music and loved spending time at music festivals. They also said they wanted kind of an indie-chic/Anthropologie wedding (I'm paraphrasing but that was the gist). An outdoor venue was a must and they fell madly in love with Maravilla Gardens the moment they set foot there. We worked with Francine and Danny for about a year and it wasn't until the day of the rehearsal that Whitney and Danny made the connection (with help from one of Danny's groomsmen) that they not only went to the same high school, but graduated the same year. That was a fun coincidence! Francine had a very specific vision for their day and as you can tell from these incredible photos, she was very inspired by florals and color. All the decor details tied together so beautifully and the day was the perfect combination of relaxed formality. No detail went unaccounted for and the vintage charm abounded. Francine and Danny were so thoughtful to their guests and really made sure they were happy, comfortable, and would always remember this special evening. The wedding went off without a hitch and we were so excited to have been part of it. Francine and Danny gifted us with passes to The Huntington Library as a "thank you" and we couldn't be more touched by the kind and extremely appropro gesture. Of course, when we see all the lovely flowers at The Huntington Library we will immediately think of Francine and Danny's beautiful wedding in the garden.
Thank you to Tikko Weddings for these photos. Also, a special thank you to Amanda from Rosebud Floral Designs for the florals, Tony from Red Shoe Entertainment, 4120 Videography, and Heidi, Jen, and the team from Maravilla Gardens.
