Real Engagement: Shana and Alex

Align Center

Shana and Alex have one of the most unique engagement story's we have ever heard and we only thought it was fitting to use Shana's story!

"On May 21, 2011, I was standing at the kitchen counter finishing making a cake for a dinner party, and Alex came up behind me and tossed the ring on top of the cake.

Then he sang me the song he wrote:

You're the Yin to my Yang

Like buffalo sauce on a chicken wing

Would you like to wear a wedding ring?

And then got down on one knee. (It took the old guy a while to get back up though)

Of course I said yes. It was a total surprise, and very silly, and very Alex. I loved it!

Plus the ring has purple stones, and I do LOVE purple. Nice work fella!"
Here is the real note that Alex wrote the song on...

Congratulations Shana and Alex! We are so excited for your beach wedding!

Real Wedding: Jennifer and Brad

Jennifer and Brad
May 15, 2011
Alhambra Hall

It was clear at the rehearsal on May 14th that Jennifer and Brad were not only ready but also very excited to be getting married. This only became more evident as we talked with the bride and groom on their wedding day. They were both calm and thinking of each other. We were even lucky enough to catch Brad dropping off Jennifer's present where she was getting ready! It was a beautiful day filled with love as you can see in these pictures!

How beautiful does Jennifer look in this photo?! Notice the flower fascinator in her hair too!

The ceremony took place out on the lawn of Alhambra Hall and was just breathtaking despite a little bit of wind.

Looks like Evan Laettner was not the only photographer at the wedding... So precious!

JW Weddings and Events did such a fabulous job on the bouquets!

The reception space was taken over by the orange and pink color scheme with paper lanterns, draping and gorgeous flowers. The family style table looked wonderful with understated flowers lining the entire table.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Baker were all smiles as they shared their first dance!

It did not take long for the rest of the guests to join Brad and Jennifer on the dance floor and stay there all night!

The guests all lined up with rose petals to send off the newlyweds in their Black Cab. Congratulations Jennifer and Brad!

Thank you Jennifer and Brad for making Sweetgrass Social a part of your special day!
