I am so excited that today is the wedding for Vanessa & Mike who won a $100,000 wedding giveaway through SF Dream Wedding Giveaway! At 4pm on the 7th floor terrace at Hotel Vitale, their dreams of having a beautiful wedding will be fulfilled. Myself and approximately 40 other vendors came together and donated our time, products and services to the well deserving couple. Vanessa has been battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and they have been such an inspiration to me. Anytime Vanessa and I got on a Skype call while she was in her hospital room receiving treatments, it always brought me back to reality of what is truly important.
This couple has a true love of family and friends and cannot wait to celebrate with them here in San Francisco. I will be sharing photos from Lilia Photography as soon as they are up, but hope to get a few sneak shots in while we are setting up. Since Vanessa said from the start she wanted a very simple wedding, we have made sure that is exactly what she is going to get. Her color palette of yellow, soft grey and white will be so crisp against the nude colors of the Vitale.
I'm looking forward to sharing images and stories from this wonderful celebration!
