Jessica and Marq were married at Rancho Valencia in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. on February 15. “It was the architectural and design details of the sunrise room that made us know that it was the one,” Jessica said. The bride wore a v-neck tea-length wedding gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash and a floral hair pin in her half-up/half-down ‘do, while the groom wore a black suit, accessorized with a striped tie. Her bouquet featured an abundance of tulips and anemones with a hint of greenery. The ceremony took place outside with guests standing. “It was very non-traditional with no aisle, no chairs, and no bridal party,” she said. “Immediately after we were pronounced husband and wife, I felt so much love,” Jessica said. “It was amazing. So many tears of joy at that moment.” Yummy hors d’oeuvres were passed during cocktail hour along with flutes of champagne. The reception was lit with lantern chandeliers to create a romantic ambiance overhead each tablescape, which were decorated with uniquely patterned charger plates and navy blue escort cards, menu cards, and table numbers. For desserts, there was a three-tiered cake, macarons, chocolate-covered strawberries, and more. Never can have too many sweets, right?
