Torie and Todd's Wedding. Woodside

Ceremony and reception at Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside.

When it rains on the East Coast get ready for a week of drizzle, dreariness, and clouds - that is how I remember it, anyways. Well, I bet friends and family were wondering if they would need umbrellas and Wellingtons because it was really raining on Friday! Behold, Saturday's weather was incredible, sunny with scattered clouds, incredibly pleasant, and no fog - which seems ever present along Skyline Road. As you many recall, Windy Hill is special to them so it was fitting that their wedding was hosted just down the road at Fogarty.

Fall is always a wonderful time for a wine-country wedding because grape leaves begin changing color shortly after crush begins and the warm days give way to cool, clear nights. The vineyards around Fogarty were painted in picturesque hues of green, yellow, and red. Amy Burke constructed a floral arch with plenty of autumn accents to match. Torie and Todd's ceremony was held on the lawn situated atop a hill with spectacular views of the Bay. It was so clear, in fact, you could see the buildings in San Francisco's financial district. Their reception was held indoors in the Hill House and Terrace. Tables were named after many of the couple's favorite Bay Area open space preserves and were decorated with colorful centerpieces - many featuring fresh fruit! An afterparty at the Crowne Plaza Cabana hotel was hosted by Torie's aunts and uncles where many Red Socks fans were entralled with the ALCS game.

Thanks to Raymond, a previous coworker of mine, for referring this great couple.
