Michele & Joaquin's Wedding. San Mateo

Ceremony at St. Gregory's and reception at the Peninsula Italian American Social Club, both in San Mateo.

Here are some of my favorite images from their wedding on this past Saturday.

Michele prepared for the big day in an awesome two-story suite at the San Mateo Marriott. As directed by the coordinator, we arrived at St. Gregory's just before the ceremony was scheduled to begin. The church, by the way, is gorgeous featuring large bronze-toned doors, a dual-arched entry, stained glass, ceiling accents, and ornate lighting. You'll see them in the pictures! Afterwards the wedding party piled into the huge Hummer limo and went to an *undisclosed*
nearby location for some relaxed group shots before finally heading over the PIASC.

Many of Joaquin's family members made the trip from El Salvador so it was appropriate for the
yummy dinner to be catered by a Salvadoran taqueria. The Latin music had guests of all ages on the dancefloor for much of the night. Cool!

Is anyone out there watching Ace of Cakes on the Food Network? Ever since catching a few episodes, I have had a fascination with wedding cakes. This beautiful cake is by the Cakery in Burlingame. Flowers are by Dana's Flower Basket in San Mateo.
