Alex and Sara met 4 years ago. They both had friends who encouraged them to try online dating. They met in person after being on the site for less than a month. After that date, they both closed their account!
Alex and Sara chose to get married at the beautiful Viansa Winery in Sonoma. It was the perfect venue for them. They were surrounded by their family and friends who traveled near and far. Their "first look" was a special moment as Alex waited for Sara to come out of the wine cellar. Sarah looked stunning in her white gown while Alex looked quite dapper in a gray suit and white tie. The look on both of their faces when they saw each other was priceless.
Throughout the wedding you will see the hard work in the details that Sara (with the help of her bridesmaids) poured into it. They had pictures of themselves when they were little hanging on clothes pins. Their guest book was a puzzle. We especially liked the name tags which became the wedding favor. Sara made each one using wine corks and succulents.
They gave both their parents a quilt with their parents' wedding picture and their picture on it. Their parents, bridal party and the two of them all wrote a letter for both of them to read on their 1st, 5th and 10th year anniversary. The minister's message was heartfelt. I couldn't help but to also listen and get a couple of tips for my own marriage.
After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres while listening to the tunes from the guitarist. From there, they made their way to the beautiful tented hall for a delicious plated dinner.
The couple and their guests danced until the end. Even grandma was on the dance floor doing the cha-cha. Hey, it's not a Filipino wedding if there's no ballroom music.
Their love for one another was so evident and working with them was such an honor.
It truly was an amazing day!
