Emily & Mike's Wedding. San Martin

Ceremony and reception at CordeValle Resort in San Martin.

KKP enjoyed an early start to the season with the wonderful wedding of Emily and Mike. Hello 2012! Despite the mid February date (aka Winter), it was warm and sunny. The unusual dry spell was perfect for the outdoor ceremony they had planned not to mention our ability to photography outside in natural light.

Standard for CordeValle, Emily enjoyed the use of a well-appointed villa situated at the top of a hill as Mike did the same nearby. The guys were wearing custom black Nike sneakers; Emily went with black Jimmy Choo’s. The couple saw each other for the first time at the end of a bright long hallway between the lobby and spa. All smiles and perfect :)

In case people arrived early, Emily and Mike provided a crossword puzzle on the back of their program to help pass the time. Must be the teacher in Emily ;) At mid afternoon the sun was getting low in the sky. Guests took their seats in the Rose Garden anticipating the start of the ceremony. Emily walked down the aisle escorted by her father. She and Mike exchanged vows before their officiant/friend and flanked by the 12 members of the wedding party. The ceremony was punctuated by the song “Grow Old With You” a’la The Wedding Singer sung by two bridesmaids and accompanied on guitar by Mike’s brother. Mike crushed a glass with one hard step and the ceremony was complete. Congratulations!

The rest of the night went off brilliantly as the celebration moved to the Ballroom. Dinner, toasts, cake, desserts, dancing... two little girls loved the dancefloor as the grown ups danced around them.
