Under the stars in Palo Alto

Wedding at the Palo Alto University Club | Olivia Smartt Photography | Bella Notte Events | Palo Alto Weddings

Its not too often I am contacted by the groom for wedding planning, but when I am, I always know its going to be special. Tom contacted me, nervous about the planning, worried about his over stressed bride to be, and told me he wanted to ensure his sweet Emily had the wedding of her dreams. They had their venue, a family estate in Palo Alto, but few other details secured and with 5 months to go, it was becoming too much. I got to meet with Tom and Emily and hear all about the bohemian, relaxed but elegant feel they wanted, discussed the stunning color palette of navy and peach, and we spent a couple hours just laughing and chatting. My biggest memories of these two are the their smiles, just such a great happy couple, with lovely friends and family. I am so honored to have been a part of creating their magical day.
