Here to inspire you, it’s Real Weddings Wednesdays! Today, we present Jennifer & Ross!

Pichetti Winery Wedding | 2G20C Wedding Photography | Bay Area Wedding

Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met through a mutual friend while both living in Los Gatos. One of his best friends from college was actually a high school friend of mine.

Ross, with the help of my parents, had set up an amazing proposal. He planned an evening out for us up to the Academy of Science in San Francisco. While we were gone the plan was set into action, decorating our whole house with flowers and setting up our living room like a mini Italian restaurant. As we walked in I was more than surprised…after Ross got down on one knee and I accepted. Out came Michael Sadri hiding in the kitchen, one of the owners of one of our favorite Italian restaurants, Vaso Azzuro in Mountain View. Part of the charm of Vaso Azzuro is that they serenade you when you dine mostly for birthday celebrations. He came out singing and prepared our dinner and served us as we were in the restaurant. It was lovely.

What was the most amazing part of your day?  The vows were the most exciting part and where I felt the most present.
What else would you like to share about your big day? I can’t believe how quickly it flew by.
