Belmont, California

From the photographer:

“Josephine and Erick are a soft-spoken couple, who reside outside of San Francisco. They are the proud parents of Bodie; probably the cutest French bulldog/ring bearer ever. Their wedding was held at their own home overlooking the hills of Santa Cruz. With the help of their coordinator, Yelena Johnson, they transformed their home into the elegant venue that it became on their wedding day. Guests were seated at two 24 foot dinner tables, and during dinner, they were pleasantly entertained by a slideshow movie of the bride and groom while feasting on local cuisine and wines.

The bride and groom chose to host their wedding at their home because their wedding day wasn’t just about celebrating their own marriage but also about celebrating friends and family. And they couldn’t think of a better way to do that than to welcome them into their home. Not just welcoming physically but welcoming them into the union of their life. Of course, having the wedding at home meant their French bulldog Bodie and his sister Bella could join too!

Everyone dined underneath the stars, and they ran in and out in between courses, crowding the kitchen island bar for celebratory toasts. They danced the night away in the dining room while overlooking the bay from the terrace.” — Jaime Viera, Viera Photography
