This 4th of July Weekend on July 6, 2013 Talia and Jarrod tied the knot at the Emma Estate with 100 close friends and family nearby and a special blessing from the couple's beloved recently passed pup, Sam.
Peach, blush and white flowers hung on both sides of the aisle and doubled as centerpieces for the 10 tables, along with photo cubes that showcased special moments and personal poems written by the bride.
Talia was excited the whole afternoon to night! With her hair in a gorgeous bun with dangling curls and a feminine button-down lace back white dress, all eyes (especially Jarrod's!) were on this life of the party bride.
The theme of the wedding reflected the couple's lasting relationship that blossomed as the high school sweethearts grew up and grew closer. Best friends since they were 15, photos of the two in '90s style clothing were posted alongside a set of colored pencils and coloring book style pages on the guest book table to reflect the school days of the couple's history. On a nearby table, photos and a candle paid tribute to Sam.
For appetizers, guests snacked on seared ahi tuna on sesame wontons, tomato soup with mini grilled cheeses, and slow braised beef short rips with black truffle whipped potatoes. The salad was a beautiful fruit and vegetable mix with pure avocado paint wrapped around by a tropical leaf. Guests dined on pan seared chicken or salmon and picked up mini cupcakes at the dessert table to end the feast.
As the sun went down the string lights, hanging lanterns, and elegant purple uplighting against a wall of trees turned on. The music kicked off the night as friends and family put their dancing shoes on. At one point the DJ played the Van Morrison song, "Natalia" after Talia's dad announced that she had been named after the song.
For a grand finale, everyone lined up in two rows on the backyard to send off the newlyweds in a dazzling array of sparkling "6th of July" fireworks!
Congrats Talia and Jarrod!
