Danielle & Matt's wedding
July 2, 2008
There was such an overwhelming sense of love and joy in the air and genuine celebration for being all together for Danielle and Matt.
Seriously- how gorgeous is Danielle?!
Such a cute shot in the barrel room. It was a cool escape from the hot weather outside!
Ahh.... the "wedding post!" This was Matt's awesome creation unveiled to all the day before the wedding. And in true hilarious fashion, the wedding post was of course accompanied with a story of the Santa Ynez Indians who had an "ancient tradition" of cutting down a tree and painting it white and placing "tribal corks" with "tribal table numbers stuck in them." Guests signed the post for Matt and Danielle. Brilliant.
With record high temperatures, we ran out to the local store to pick up popsicles for the guests to enjoy upon arrival.
I love this shot of Matt seeing Danielle for the first time that day.
The ceremony was so full of emotion- both heartfelt and hilarious. I laughed and cried the whole time.
Quite possibly the best wedding toast I have ever witnessed. (Given by Matt's fellow UCB'ers.)
Now for the story of the greatest surprise "first dance" EVER. Inspired by a spoof which Matt wrote and directed based off of the dance movie genre, they decided to surprise their guests with something completely awesome. The "Bad Newz Bears," a dance crew out of Los Angeles, were secretly hired to come to the wedding. The guys from the crew dressed as waiters and were on the floor "serving" guests for about an hour before the dance began..
AMAZING! You have such a gift for detail, and after reading your recount of the day, I feel like I'm there again! You are so talented! What a joy to work with you on this beautiful wedding and I am just always so amazed by what you do! (Still I'm hooked on the blog...love the gocco) Can't wait to see more!!! Thank you for being so awesome! See you very soon! Love, A
So beautiful, brilliant, and HILARIOUS!!
haha what was the last line in amy poehler's toast that made matt react like that?
You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.
I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
