After our vacation in Yosemite National Park we drove back to Los Gatos for the wedding of my cousins' Andy and Marnie's son Jon to the lovely Juliet in an outdoor wedding by the lake, surrounded by redwood trees, wildflowers, friends and family. The wedding took place at the home of the groom which is nestled up in the Santa Cruz Mountains above the charming town of Los Gatos, California. The weather was perfect and the ceremony unique and special as the bride and groom spoke the vows they had written gazing at each other lovingly.
Marnie, Jon's Mom did an amazing job of preparing and organizing this absolutely beautiful event, down to baking the wedding cake and decorating it with a basket weave frosting and flowers. She had even planted a wildfower garden with a path down the center for the bridal party to walk through, like an aisle in a church – white daisies and blue bachelor buttons! Eating and dancing went on late into the night and was followed up with a brunch by the pool the next day and a lot of relaxing.
