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.
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.
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.
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.
Family is incredible, and Jennifer and Tony had a fantastic family team. Shout out to Michaela Cabanilla, Rhoda Perez, and Maricris Maravilla; along with the dessert table they lovingly put together., they also created this gorgeous flower wall as a backdrop.
The other excellent floral work surrounding the venue was created by NC Event Designs, who did an excellent job with the archway, aisle and table centerpieces, and bouquets.
The ceremony was held on a cool winter evening and was officiated by Tan Wedding and Events. Beat Fleet DJ worked with Dee and Kris to ensure there was enough uplighting to make the ceremony dramatically breathtaking. Vizcaya Sacramento’s in-house coordinator, Samantha Buchanan, did a fantastic job ensuring the evening went smoothly.
Jennifer got creative with her Cricut machine to create these one-of-a-kind seating charts. Nicely done!
Friends and family gave their funny and touching toasts as the sweethearts sat at their Sweetheart’s Table. Tears and laughter were the message of the evening.
Following the sweet and sentimental toasts, Jennifer and Tony made their way to cut into the cake. This beautifully made two-tier cake that Sacramento’s own Ettore’s Bakery expertly created.
Beat Fleet DJs provided great vibes and even greater tunes for the couple to celebrate their day. Jennifer and Tony glided across the dance floor to the sounds of 17 by Pink Sweat$
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.
The money dance is a longstanding tradition that extends culturally throughout the world. It can be sweet and subdued but usually gets raucous and crazy as it did at Jennifer and Tony’s wedding!
Screams of excitement filled the venue as Tony played hide and seek for the garter, and Jennifer lined up the ladies in her life for the bouquet toss.
Breakdancing, group dances, signature moves, and more were showcased on the dancefloor as the party carried on into the wee hours of the night.
