Winter Wedding Vibes

Jennifer and Tony chose a beautiful California December day to tie the knot. The bride and groom decided on the beautiful Vizcaya, a lovely Queen Ann Bed and Breakfast located in the heart of Sacramento, California.

Jennifer’s fairytale dress from Miosa Bride hung elegantly in the doorway. The rings shimmered in the light. The bride was pampered by All Dolled Up Beauty + Bridal inside one of the venue’s beautiful rooms. Every detail was perfect down to the invitations by House of Design Concept.

Jennifer stepped into her dress with the intricately beaded bodice and felt like a princess. Her bridesmaids helped her button up the back. She stepped into her bejeweled strap sandals that showed off her pedicure, and she was ready.

When Your Crew Has Got You

Tony got ready in another room as his groomsmen kept him steady. His mom had a special moment with him while she helped him put on his custom cufflinks designed by Hundred Hearts, who also created custom cufflinks for his groomsmen. Tony also gifted them with personalized flask he found at Love and Luxe Handmade.

Mother and son shared many memorable moments, but this moment was made even more special because the leis and boutonnieres were made by family members who own The Flower Impressions, LLC, and were sent with love from Hawaii.

First Looks Last Forever

The couple decided to have a non-traditional First Look session, and the front steps of Vizcaya made an intimate and beautiful setting. Jennifer snuck up behind her groom and gave him a little cheeky pinch. As he turned around to see his bride, he couldn’t help but to smile and playfully enjoy this time together.

Perfection on the Portico

Vizcaya’s lovely portico next to its fountain was the perfect spot to show off Jennifer’s train and veil. Tony and Jennifer took this opportunity to steal a pre-wedding kiss.

Wedding party photos were so much fun as they laughed and posed on the porch of the historic mansion. Vizcaya also boasts a sweet garden and patio area for photographs and breathtaking stainded glass windows in their Grand Pavilion.

Vizcaya Sacramento’s in-house coordinator, Samantha Buchanan, did a fantastic job ensuring the evening went smoothly.

One of the favorite moments of the evening was the dances Jennifer and Tony shared with their parents. As Tony’s mother leaned her head against her son’s chest, Jennifer’s father whispered a teary, “I love you” to his daughter.
