It was a super sweet year filled with all types of baker’s confections! From Zia and Coley’s cheese (yes, rounds) cake and Ally and Jeff’s naked cake topped with fresh strawberries to Carolina and Benjamin’s Day of the Dead-themed cake complete with skeletons and Maggie and Jason’s Auntie Anne’s soft pretzel-shaped cake, we couldn’t keep our stomachs from growling.

Orange Spring Sculpture Farm Wedding in California

Zia & Coley 

May 4  

Woodside, California 

~~~~~~~~

From the bride: “When Coley graduated from Trinity 10 years ago, he saw most of his economics major friends moving to New York for investment banking jobs and wasn’t that excited to follow them. He decided to hang his hat on his minor in Chinese and try his luck in Shanghai. Five years later, on the other side of the world in San Francisco, I started to get the same restless feeling and decided to ask my firm for a transfer to the most far-flung office I could think of; Shanghai. Strangely many people asked me whether I thought I was likely to meet someone while abroad. I wasn’t overly concerned about dating at the time, but I would always tell them that it seemed to me that interesting, adventurous, ambitious people came to Shanghai from all over the world and that seemed like a good start. I had no idea I would meet someone so perfect for me so quickly though. Not 3 months after I moved to Shanghai, Coley and I met through mutual friends while getting foot massages on a lazy Saturday afternoon. A few weeks later, we found ourselves at the same massive New Year’s Eve party. We danced together all night and never looked back.

Runnymede is just an amazing property, and I have always felt so lucky to have been able to spend so much time there through my life. The Rosekrans have been family friends of ours since before I was born, and I spent countless childhood Easters, Halloweens, and summer weekends running wild through those hills, climbing sculptures, and dancing late into the night in the barn. As luck would have it one of Coley’s aunts also happened to live only a few miles away, which made the area feel connected to both of us. When the Rosekrans offered to let us hold the wedding at Runnymede, it was an absolutely obvious choice. We couldn’t have asked for more on our wedding day than to share such a special place with the people that mean the most to us in the world.

Crisp air, changing foliage, pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks — the list of reasons why we love Fall is almost as long as the season itself. But, in the interest of saving time, we’ll get right down to our favorite part: the weddings. Certain details just work best between September and November, and these are the ones we love most.

Red, White and Blue Bridal Shoes

Posted by Caitlin on Jul 01, 2013

Many couples choose to have a patriotic wedding that coincides with 4th of July, but that doesn’t mean your color palette has to resemble Yankee Doodle Dandy or Uncle Sam. Instead, show your love for America with subtle pops of red, white or blue! Here’s our salute to bridal shoes:

Red

Would you rather be comfortable as you walk down the aisle? If your primped and pampered toes can agree, choose these firecracker red ballet flats.
