Andrea & Chachi's Wedding

I'll be showing you weddings in reverse order because I'm feeling sort of backwards these days anyway.

On Friday night Andrea and Chachi were married at the Sterling Hotel in Sacramento.

I love the old charm of this gorgeous building, nestled amongst the trees not far from the California capitol.

The wedding and reception took place in the ballroom that was equally as charming.

I love these pictures of them!

We arrived a little bit early and I was able to sneak around and take pictures of the table arrangements. Simple and beautiful.

The hanging key accents made such a gorgeous statement.

They had me at cupcake display. This picture doesn't do it justice.

There were actually 3 colors and flavors. Darker pink, light pink and white. Each color had a slightly different accent from pearls to flowers. You can't tell here but some of them were glittery!

More centerpieces, I love the mix of short and tall so they don't crowd the room.

Classic and glamorous.

Have I told you how much I love hydrangeas?

I got a sneak peak of some of the groomsmen and made him sit for me so I could get a picture.

The gentlemen all waiting very patiently. On the far left we have the minister and the 2nd gentleman is the groom.

We found out later that the mother of the groom gave all the groomsmen smelling salts in case they needed to revive him.

This blurry picture is the only one I have of the bride and grooms adorable son. He turns 1 next month!

I loved her hair and I felt the urge to go out and buy hair accessories... preferrably with feathers.

All the ladies waiting for the grand entrance of the bride...

and the saxophonist starts playing a melody.

Andrea looked so beautiful, she had the bridal glow.

You may kiss the bride!

I love Chachi's expression here.

Such a happy couple! The reception was full of laughter and a bit of chaos. I mean that in the best way possible. It was an adult only reception and included lots of dancing and drinking, a photo booth and many, many memories.

See, you can tell I'm pregnant! The black just disguises the belly in photos.

Oh and I did have flats with me just in case my feet or hips or back got tired. I ended up using them about the last 30 minutes or so.

Light-up hula hoops! I love little surprises like this :) A fun wedding for a really fun couple... I wouldn't expect anything less!
