Rosa and Jose were married in a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Joan of Arc in San Ramon (my home church) followed by an elegant reception at Bridges Golf Course.
The ceremony Mass started with Jose walking with both of his parents down the aisle, followed by Rosa escorted by their two sons. At the conclusion of Mass and family photos, we made our way over to Bridges Golf Course to begin the celebration of their union.
The Garden Pavilion was dressed in shades of gold, crimson, and champagne. A crystal backdrop behind the sweetheart table, accompanied with the crystal votives helped created a romantic feel throughout the evening. To kick off the reception a mariachi band played as guests sipped on drinks and mingled with one another. When Rosa and Jose entered, their friends and family all hollered as they began their first dance as husband and wife.
The evening was quite the fiesta, with toasts, special performances by family members, and special family dances – and even a fun money dance! At the end of the evening, one thing was certain, this was a family – by blood and by choice – in ever sense of the word.
