Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Funk!
What else can you even say after that? It’s such an awesome statement on it’s own, but since I like to tell stories, let me tell you a bit about theirs 🙂
One fine day in Dallas…
One fine day in Dallas Texas, Dr. Funk (yes he is a doctor and yes, his last name is Funk!) and the fabulous Jennifer each ventured out to their local dog park. After their matchmaking dogs started playing, the two strangers were brought together and spent some time flirting and getting to know one another (Robert & Jennifer, not the dogs!).
After the animals had their dog park fill, Robert and Jennifer went their separate ways. The very next day, Jennifer opened her front door and found a sweet note left from Robert. The rest is history!
A Perfect Day for a Viansa Winery Wedding
Being the fabulous couple that they are, Robert and Jennifer decided to tie the knot at the Viansa Winery in Napa and managed to place an order for a day with perfect weather! If you haven’t been to Viansa yet, then you are definitely missing out! I’ll let the photos below speak for themselves.
Okay, now onto the details…
It goes without saying that Jennifer looked absolutely stunning on her wedding day. Petaluma’s Lauthr Salon & Spa did a beautiful job giving her a classy look with hair and makeup, not to mention her beaded Justin Alexander wedding dress was out of this world gorgeous! I was obsessed with it even more once she put it on and her oh so handsome hubby walked in wearing his snazzy grey Tommy Hilfiger suit.
Navy, Gold, Cream, and Lace
I loved the colors Robert and Jennifer chose for their big day! They chose navy, gold, cream, and lace. The combination was flawless and set in the romantic Viansa cave filled with wine barrels, tea light candles, and gorgeous white flowers by Vanda Floral Design.
As it always does, my heart was pounding with nerves and excitement once we were set up for the ceremony to begin. Robert & Jennifer brought their pastor with them, which I thought was very touching since he knows the couple well and was able to unite them and the all of the guests on an emotional level. At the end of the ceremony, once they were announced as “Mr. & Mrs. Funk”, Robert pulled Jennifer close, grabbed his phone, and took a post ceremony selfie! I loved it and was thrilled he had given me the heads up!
Great Photo Ops & A Rockin’ Party
I had a blast doing Robert and Jennifer’s intimates. We went from loving, to romantic, to silly, to biting (yes Jennifer gets “hangry” and enjoys biting her hubby!), to my favorite, rock star posing! These two have a lot of spunk, which makes for some really great photo opportunities.
After our photos and the hangry biting, Sage Catering served their delicious dinner. It was then that the party really got going and believe me; it was epic! DJ Jeff Virzi from Cali Mobile Entertainment knew how to keep the Funk rocking and even the though the valley gets cold at night, you’d never know it the way this crowd partied! Did I mention the late night limbo that went down? AMAZING!
The entire day went without a hitch with much credit to the amazing wedding planner, Kristen Hardy (Viansa). Bravo!
Robert and Jennifer, I wish you two all the love and happiness in the world! Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!
