This amazing wedding had many elements that the bride did herself, such as the pinwheels which were used as escort cards. Even the self-portrait photo booth that the guests had their picture taken inside of "frames" was made by the bride. They had many "school" elements as the bride is an elementary school teacher, such as the guest book made out of old library cards.
Couple: Kendall Smith & Alex Wilson
It took three years for Lauren Pieretti’s and Lori LaCoursiere’s relationship to develop after they met at The Café in the Castro District. But once Lori proposed on Baker Beach during a training run for a half marathon, the couple decided they couldn’t wait for the legalization of same-sex marriage to wed, so they staged a nautical-theme commitment ceremony at the Argonaut Hotel on November 5.
"We wanted to get married in a place that represented us as a couple," says Jessica. "We chose Cornerstone Sonoma because it's fun, different, and a bit kooky—it's not too serious, and neither are we." The bride's bouquet showcased the event's color palette. "I'm drawn to muted, dusky colors," she says. "We chose soft green, pink, orange, and gray-blue." Jessica's vows contained a line from Moulin Rouge, a movie both she and Tim love: "Come what may, I will love you until my dying day."
