A Sparkling, Sports-Filled Wedding in Palo Alto

Brad and Jessie perfectly fused their two different styles and personalities (she loves anything that sparkles, he loves all things sports) into one beautiful wedding. 

The bride carefully considered each detail on the big day, so that everything around her was meaningful. Jessie's bouquet was wrapped with the veil her mother wore on her christening day, and she pampered her bridesmaids with Kate Spade bracelets engraved with a sweet individual messages along with matching kimonos for when they got ready. 

Brad is a huge sports fan, so his cufflinks were a stylish tribute to his favorite team (Go Giants!), and at the reception he put Jessie's garter around a 49ers football before he tossed it back to the groomsmen. Even the wedding colors were a mix of 49ers' red and Giant's orange. 

The reception ballroom was elegant, soft and romantic with beautiful floral arrangements. Jessie and her brothers were raised by her single mother, and she chose to do a "Mother Daughter" dance instead. Guests also admired a custom painting, made just for the couple's wedding day, which picturing the venue with Brad and Jessie's names and wedding date on a banner in the lower corner of the painting. The night ended with a grand sparkler exit.
