When you get married at a quaint church on Balboa Island, the bride @hilary_helfrich and I felt there was no better way to transport guests to the reception in Bayshores than with a boat parade decked out with fun snacks and cocktails.

Our bride Hilary was such a pleasure to work with. She has the best style, and we truly loved working alongside Hilary and her mom Julie. This wedding had to be changed into a micro wedding, complete with a venue change to accommodate the Covid mandates. We ended up at her grandmother's beautiful home in Southern California. Sometimes in life, things turn out even better after having to shift.

A Magical Garden Wedding in Atherton

We were able to move a wedding in a couple days from Napa to Atherton due to the horrific wine country fires. My team and the team of exceptional vendors were incredible and we pulled off a pretty and seamless 2 day wedding. I can not thank everyone enough who worked round the clock to make this possible. Yesterday the wedding was featured in a beautiful feature n Over the Moon blog. https://overthemoon.com/weddings/holly-siegel-tom-denison-atherton-wedding-relocated-after-wildfires/

“Thinking back to those few days of relocating is a total blur,” says the bride. “So much happened so fast!”
