Real Wedding~Kristen & Tyler

Married August 26, 2017 
Kristen and Tyler dated throughout their senior year of high school, but as the school year neared its end reality set in as the school year neared the end that Kristen would be moving to San Francisco for college. Tyler had plans to play baseball for Fresno State. Even though their short-term plans had them living miles apart, they never doubted the strength of their relationship and knew that their future was together.

“The summer before starting college Tyler mentioned over ice cream, ‘We should get married after college.’ I think I laughed, kissed him, and kept eating my ice cream-cone,” explains Kristen. “Tyler has always been a man of his word, and I don’t know why I didn’t think twice about that comment. The rocky road must have been distracting me. Only two months after his college graduation he popped the question. The 26th of August 2017 our vows and some lip-locking was exchanged and we officially became Mr. and Mrs. Bettencourt!”
Kristen, in marketing as a Social Media Influencer, Tyler, now a Personal Trainer and Physical Therapy Aid, chose to keep their ceremony and reception close to home. Their source of inspiration came from their hometown church in Patterson, CA.

“I always pictured a bed of white florals at Mary’s feet and taking a moment to pray with my husband before the conclusion of our ceremony and beginning our new life together.”

“The color white is a symbol of purity, as well as respect and reverence, which are traits we want to carry with us into our marriage,” says Kristen. “The most important aspect of our wedding was promising our lives to each other in front of all our loved ones, but most importantly in front of God. When I learned green symbolizes renewal and promise of new life the vision for our wedding florals came easily. It had to be all white florals with overflowing romantic greenery.” Old world elegance with a modern twist seemed fitting for the couple. “Tyler and I are pretty traditional, “yet we’re 25 and youthful.” Kristen selected stylish floor length bridesmaid’s dresses in black by Calvin Klein for her fun-loving bridesmaids. Tyler, alongside his eight groomsmen, stuck to time-honored elegance with black Vera Wang tuxedos.  
The wedding party’s style coupled with soft gold details throughout The Century would embrace a balance of the vintage architecture and furniture the pair selected.

“Exposed brick, and wooden elements throughout the reception such as our rectangular farm tables and arbor above our sweet heart table brought the natural look we desired,” explains Kristen. “The mix of elegant florals, luxurious ivory linens, and creamy candle light painted the perfect picture in order to transport our guests into a romantic wonderland.”

“Tyler and I really wanted to add fun personal details sprinkled throughout our wedding and bring forward our culture and youthful side,” explains Kristen. ‘We figured everyone loves social media and will be sharing the wonderful moments throughout the night, so we had an illustration made of us as bride and groom and placed on a Snapchat filter for our guests.”

“We wanted our favors to truly express Tyler and me. Tyler’s culture is Portuguese, mine is Mexican,” explains Kristen. “We wanted everyone to have a taste of our culture by trying our favorite signature cookies in custom favor boxes, paired with our favorite coffee beans from our bay area coffee house, Philz.” 

Celebrations continued into the evening with a late night self-serve S’mores bar, The Platinum Photo Booth set-up with black and white photos for the guests, and glow sticks lighting up the room as Kristen and Tyler’s closest friends and family joined them on the dance floor. Making a sparkling exit, the couple kissed under the glimmer. Kristen expressed, “it was the perfect kiss goodnight to our wedding day!”

Riki & Jason Young

Married August 24, 2013Young-Wedding-712
Riki and Jason met in 2009 while at Lake Don Pedro. It was love at first sight for the two who couldn’t be separated after that day. Just after three years together Jason surprised Riki with a weekend getaway to Monterrey were he proposed at Lovers’ Point.




When the newly-engaged couple started planning their special day, they knew one thing: it had to be an all-white wedding with just a hint of gold for the color scheme. The color palette stayed true throughout the décor and all the way to the desserts.
Before saying “I DO” the couple shared personal vows they had written for one another. After the ceremony Riki and Jason were incredibly eager to be swept away by their photographer and have their first moment together as husband and wife captured as the sun set behind them.Young-Wedding-803

After returning from pictures and being announced as Mr. and Mrs. Young, Jason was surprised with a gift from his wife. Riki had arranged to have a light-up dance floor for the evening, which is just up Jason’s alley, as he loves to dance.
