Country Club Wedding

Norma and Jim said “I do” on a beautiful winter morning at Serrano Country Club. Located in El Dorado Hills, just east of Sacramento, this venue’s lush lawns and beautiful oak trees was perfect.

Norma stood on the clubhouse balcony in her silk robe with the word “bride” scrawled on the back. The January sun shined on her face as the windows caught her reflection.

Her lace and tulle ball gown with the sweetheart neckline hung elegantly on the wooden stand. Her bejeweled platform stilettos with the peek-a-boo sides glinted from the shadows.

Before the ceremony, Norma enjoyed some special moments laughing with and hugging her parents.

As they sat together on a bed, the bride leaned gently against her mother’s shoulder, trying not to cry and ruin her make-up. They held each other’s hands in prayer.

Norma smiled sweetly as she read the handwritten note from Jim. She held the piece of paper to her heart and her eyes welled up with tears.

Grinning From Ear to Ear

While Norma got ready at the clubhouse, Jim prepped for the big day at Holy Trinity Parrish where the ceremony would take place. Just like James Bond, Jim looked suave in his white suit jacket and tie. Undoubtedly, he felt good too as he smiled widely and walked smoothly.

Indeed, Jim was moved by Norma’s letter to him as he wiped away tears.

Time to Say “I do”

In view of their loved ones, Jim watched anxiously as his bride seemed to float down the aisle toward him. Norma held tightly to the arm of her father and toward her husband-to-be.

As Father Pepin Dandou began to speak, the couple looked at each other and smiled. Despite their nerves, they had waited for this day and were ready. Jim set their minds at ease as he lifted her hand for a gentle kiss.

The Blossom Shop of Folsom provided all the beautiful flowers for this event. Especially touching were the memorial arrangements they created.

They twirled and dipped and kissed their way across the floor. As a result, the whole world seemed to disappear and it was just the two of them.
