Valerie Balogh to Geoffrey Fox

Oh, this was such a romantic wedding.

I love the palette. The color of the bridesmaids' dresses is lovely, and they seem to complement the brides' lilies, as well as the bridesmaids' bouquets. I also like that the 'maids got to wear slightly different dresses made from the same fabric. That always lends such a nice, personalized touch to the event.

The ceremony site was so beautiful. The colors of the bouganvillea fit right in with the event's style. It must have been wonderful to walk past them going too and from the ceremony itself. With the palm trees and ocean in the background, this looks like a Southern California dream wedding.

I love the photo table. The bouganvillea in the background seem like part of the decor, and the gorgeous light makes the scene glow with the peachy warmth of the wedding colors.

I love family pictures, and a display such as this is so sweet. I know that as a guest, I'd love to take the time to write good wishes to the couple surrounded by such happy images.

Beautiful tables. Those candelabras are spectacular, and the flowers are once again just right for this warm, romantic event.

What elegant favor boxes.


And scrumptious! What a beautiful cake. I love the silver stand, too -- so elegant.

There's nothing like the first dance . . .

Love this champagne! It only makes sense that these two would choose a sparkling wine that's not only wonderful, but has such a pretty label, too.

Images of the wedding party in "the outside world" are so special. Everyone dressed in their wedding finery seems as though they've dropped out of a fairy tale. And this photograph is iconic, with the bride in her dress and that row of palm trees against the sky.

True love . . .

. . . pure romance . . .
