Nancy and Geoff, both finance professionals, met at work and were friends for years before sparks flew over pisco sours on a trip to Peru. A year later, Geoff proposed while the pair were in Sicily.
They designed a feminine wedding aesthetic in white and blush hues with pops of coral. Special elements included an ikebana escort-card display with glass cloches, a lush hanging installation of florals and candles, a horse trailer turned cocktail bar, and an audio guestbook in the form of a Parisian-inspired vintage phone. The flower-adorned wedding cake was the bride’s favorite detail; for the groom, it was their first look on a nearby bridge. The pair chose a menu of locally sourced hors d’oeuvres such as summer-corn ceviche, beef sliders, and vegetable salad, along with beef short rib, tilefish, and wheatberry risotto. Later in the evening came a snack of chicken bites with poblano ranch plus housemade French fries.
