What They Did Right: Janet & Matt

Posted by on Nov 18, 2009 in Decor & Details | 6 Comments

I was so excited when I got an email from Janet the other day. She had seen my post on yellow and silver inspirations and thought I might like to see shots of her West Coast wedding.  I didn’t just LIKE them, I LOVED them!  Some of you may have seen this stunning wedding shot by Stephanie Williams Photography, but if you haven’t, be prepared for a treat.  Janet and Matt used Yellow and Silver and spiced it up with little splashes of red… Such a delightful detail. She also pulled out the most glorious little detail- the heart from her invitations- and pulled it into her adorable Vivian Westwood shoes (her dress was Pronovias, btw).  I forgot to ask her who designed her wonderful stationary, but I think that the bride herself may have had a hand it it… it just has such a fantastic personal feel to it.


One thing that I love that Janet and Matt did was to really style their fabulous wedding party. I just adored the bridesmaids dresses, which were from J.Crew. These photos go to show that when it comes to things like accessories, there is no detail that is too small. The added splashes of color from the bridesmaids’ bracelets gave them such a “finished” look. And I adored Matt’s tie!!!  This color scheme worked so well for them because their ceremony was able to have a much more romantic and soft summer feeling, while the reception got “spiced” up a bit with some more hints of red! Here are some shots of their attire and the gorgeous chapel in Palo Alto where they had their ceremony.


The couple then headed to the Rosewood Sand Resort for their reception.  Janet said that they spent a ton of time on DIY details, and her hard work paid off.  Here are some shots of the fantastic details, but for more stunning pics of this wedding, head over to Stephanie’s blog.  Wasn’t Janet just the most adorable bride?  Wishing her and Matt a very, very blessed marriage!
