There is nothing like a good theme to make a wedding go from good to fabulous! The wedding of Queenie and Franco is no exception. Being the world travelers that they are, they decided to embrace a theme that expressed just that. From airplane cuff links, to paper airplane programs, these two had the adventurer's dream wedding design!
Let's start with their tea ceremony. Can we just take a second to admire how beautiful the outdoor area they chose was? And how about how great the two look? Wow!
After all the fun of the tea ceremony, Queenie and Franco departed to the Skyline Church in Oakland which has floor to ceiling windows overlooking huge trees and letting in beautiful light. There were so many people there to celebrate with the two of them that they barely all fit into the church! They played a fun slideshow for everyone to see and Queenie even surprised Franco by going over to the piano and performing a song. So sweet!
After the ceremony, we headed over to the Orinda Country Club. They have a great little library-esque room for the bride and groom to rest and touch up. The reception hall was where I was just blown away by all of the tiny and amazing details that they put into it. The place cards were designed to look like airplane tickets and the destination was actually the name of the table! Such a clever idea! The centerpieces of the table consisted of stacked up travel books and beautiful flowers. Their dessert table was mouthwatering and had boxes and tins of sweets, all wrapped up in old maps and displayed on top of vintage suitcases.
I could go on and on about the things that I loved at their wedding but instead, take a look for yourselves. To Queenie and Franco, congratulations again! You two make sure a great couple and I wish you many more adventures ahead!
