Featured Wedding ~ Aliesha & Brandon Long

Married May 28, 2016Brandon + Aliesha Long - Greg Petersen-37

“Everything happens for a reason,” so 10 years ago, when Aliesha met Brandon, neither knew that their reason for everything was standing before them.

Aliesha and Brandon both decided that they wanted to keep their wedding personal and intimate, making sure those that meant the most and had an impact on their lives were present. Therefore after Brandon proposed, Aliesha knew a way she could show them how much they meant to her. She would hold her wedding ceremony in a beautiful walnut orchard on her grandparents’ property, something that had become a tradition in her family and a fantasy she’d had since she was a young girl. Aliesha knew how happy the decision she had made would make her grandmother. With family backing them, the happy couple started the wedding journey.

Aliesha, new to wedding planning, was given great advice on how to organize and plan her dream wedding by clients from her work. She had also decided to hire Detailed Look to make her vision possible without breaking the bank. She would first need a theme; and after talking with her fiancé, she was able to create something unique: An Antique Tiki Fairytale, perfectly combining her and Brandons’ interests. Aliesha, her mother and her sister collected antique gold and brass vases and candleholders from different shops in Northern California, adding just the touch they needed. Brandon spray painted the standing candleholders and the tiki masks that decorated the bar, which served four different types of beer he and his friends had brewed for the occasion. The couple took a trip to a rock and mineral show, selecting amethyst pieces for the table settings and a special pink salt crystal for their sweetheart table.

From the wedding favors down to the runners, bar signs and welcome signs, Aliesha, Brandon and their family conquered each task. Although planning was going well, Aliesha, Brandon, and Family still had their challenges to face; they couldn’t believe how such small projects could take so long! As unique as their wedding was, Aliesha and Brandon still wanted to put their own twist on things, so they decided to hire AZCO Rustic Design to host lawn games at their reception! They knew that their guests would have the time of their lives and that their wedding would stand out from all the rest.Brandon + Aliesha Long - Greg Petersen-85

The day neared, and Aliesha and Brandon finalized the details. Aliesha mailed the Agate-style wedding invitations, and Brandon worked on his 1955 Cadillac. On May 28th, 2016, Aliesha rushed from appointment to appointment, makeup and hair and nails. Before she even realized, she was slipping into her Enzoani wedding gown. “Take a deep breath and remember this moment,” Aliesha told herself. As she walked down the aisle into the walnut orchard, Elvis crooning “Love Me Tender” into her ear. She gazed at her husband to be, love filling her heart. Everything was perfect. Aliesha’s advice to future brides: “Pause. Take a deep breath. Remember this moment. Remember it forever.”

Kerrie & Keith Schroyer

Married August 30th, 2014

Meet Kerrie & Keith Shroyer.

Keith and Kerrie got engaged on February 16th in San Francisco at Crissy Field. The couple had gone to this very spot overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge on multiple occasions to picnic and enjoy the coastal breeze. Keith completely surprised Kerrie with the proposal, and captured the incredible moment by having his brother in disguise take pictures as it all played out.

The wedding planning process, of only 6 short months, went by incredibly fast. Kerrie selected the perfect dress on March 1st, before the couple had even chosen a location. Keith and Kerrie had the most trouble with choosing a location and had some venues laugh when we said we wanted a 2014 date. When we found Spring Creek, they knew right away that this was the location. The staff, the food, everything was perfect.

The inspiration for the look for the couple’s celebration came from Kerrie’s love of rustic and Keith’s sophisticated, classic, almost-vintage taste. The one element Kerrie knew she wanted was a special car. Her uncle has a collection of old vintage cars, and as soon as she was engaged Kerrie asked him if she could borrow one to drive in on with her dad. He knew immediately which car he wanted to lend them – a beautifully restored 1949 convertible Cadillac.

Kerrie’s favorite part of the wedding was walking down the aisle and seeing her future husband’s face – she had never seen him smile so big. The best part of the planning process was probably seeing the vision they both had come to life. Keith and Kerrie also enjoyed being a part of the planning process together, where they learned to make decisions together, as a team.
