Jeff Maltz and Gillian Garrett: Married May 1, 2011

It was a cloudless May morning as guests began to take their seats on the patio of The Firehouse in Old Sacramento. As Gillian made her way down the aisle wearing a gown passed down from her mother it seemed as if time stood still. When the ceremony got underway, Jeff and Gillian stood embracing each other as they spoke their vows, and exchanged their rings.

The huge shade trees, and branch covered brick on the patio was splashed with spring color thanks to Cheryl with Accents by Sage. The guests enjoyed a signature cocktail while the new couple posed for pictures in the cobblestone alley behind The Firehouse with photographer Mike Greener with Greener Visuals. A breathtaking spread of artfully crafted appetizers was presented by Shannon and The Firehouse staff.

This no-nonsense couple had succeeded in their mission to have a “no-fuss” wedding in all respects but one, the sweets!  They began at the hotels where the out of town guests were greeted with a custom cookie creation. For Dessert an amazing and decadent spread of confectionery was assembled even miniature root beer floats! The finale was a send-off with a lavender handmade marshmallow all thanks to Carissa from Sugar and Spice Specialty Desserts.

Family and Friends lined the alley way and waved good-bye as the couple rode away in a  Silver Ride PT Cruiser. Jeff and Gillian are headed to Africa for three weeks and we wish them all the happiness in the world! Thank you both for letting Catrina Maria Design be a part of your special day.

Alright, this couple is just unfair.  They are beyond gorgeous together, they’re totally committed (they’ve been together for 8 years!), and the photos that Tinywater Photography captured of them are truly breathtaking.  We love the cool, urban feel of their engagement photos and the way Carla and Loren seem so blissful and at ease.  Check them out!

Awwwww!  Warm fuzzies all over!!  We are in the midst of wedding planning with Carla and Loren and we can’t wait to see their big day come together.  This stylish couple is getting married in Los Lagos and then heading over to Sacramento’s Elks Tower for their reception.  There, they’ll be pampered by a great team, including DJ Mike Regan, Accents by Sage Floral Design, Tinywater Photography, and, of course, yours truly!  It’s going to be a fabulous day!
