Joanna and Matt

Married: June 11, 2011

The scene was picturesque; the bride and groom stood beneath a massive oak tree on the property of David Girard Vineyards in Placerville, Ca. Yellow rose and freesia petals decorated the aisle and the bouquets of the bridal party, a gentle breeze moved their scent around while friends and family watched Joanna and Matt exchange their vows.

After the ceremony the guests enjoyed some of David Girard’s finest selections and appetizers in the shade with a breathtaking view of rolling hills and grapevines. Friends and family were then taken to the tented reception area that had been beautifully decorated with blue gingham linens and stunning freesia centerpieces by Cheryl Hamilton Porter. The hard working staff from Bocca Catering served the guests a colorful and delectable dinner. A mouth-watering dessert table was provided by Christina Aguiar (who also doubled as a bridesmaid).

First Class Entertainment provided just that, and kept the party going. There to capture the day on film was Carrie Richards Photography and they were both a pleasure to work with.

After dancing the night away Joanna and Matt had one last treat for their guests, a special snack before everyone went on their way…Jimboy’s Tacos. Platter, upon platter of the couples favorite late night snack arrived just before the reception ended. Shortly after, everyone (including the bride and groom) loaded up on shuttles provided by Delta Charter and headed off to the after party.

All together it was a flawless day; beautiful weather, and a beautiful couple. Thank you Joanna and Matt for sharing your story and your special day with us. All the best to the both of you!
