It has been a long wait since shooting Simona and Ward’s Turtle Hill and China Beach engagement session in San Francisco, but as soon as we arrived to Oakmont Golf Club on their big day, we knew it was well worth it! The attention to detail that was put into the wedding was like no other! Simona even had a custom perfume set with sleeves printed with their wedding date and her name!! The rings were all rose gold, which matched the metal on Simona’s engagement ring, and paid homage to Ward’s dad – whose wedding band looked exactly like the one Ward was about to wear for the first time.
The ceremony was nestled down on the green at the 18th hole of the golf course, overlooking a stunning pond and surrounded by beautiful large trees. Simona wore a strapless tulle gown, accented with gold lace, which looked beautiful next to Ward’s classic all black suit and burgundy bow tie. And to top it all off – their officiant was actually the best man at Ward’s father’s wedding!
The reception was just as intimate as the rest of the day, with several toasts from lifelong friends, and even a performance of a song written just for them. Simona shared her touching father-daughter dance with 5 men, all of whom played big roles in her life, and ended the song dancing with her mom. Ward on the other hand turned his mother-son dance into a dance party for everyone to join in on! The newlyweds then spent the rest of their night dancing with their friends and family, before heading off to their mini-moon in Canada!
Congratulations Simona and Ward! We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the two of you 🙂
