Q and A: Lara-Christopher Wedding-Mountain Terrace

Give us a little background on you. How did you meet and start dating? How did you get engaged? Tell us about the rings.

We met at my sister’s wedding after being told about one another by my brother in law. We dated long distance for 9 months before I moved out to San Francisco. We got engaged after 4 and a half years together in NJ (where I am from) with both our sets of parents present. My engagement ring contains a emerald cut diamond that belonged to his grandmother.

Did you work with a certain them or design motif? Please describe in detail why you chose this aesthetic, and how you carried it throughout your wedding.

We went with a theme of rustic vintage charm that would lend itself best to our gorgeous venue. We used Mason jars and vintage style vases and bottles for our centerpieces. Our florist was immensely helpful in achieving the perfect style of flowers to go with our vision.

How did you decide on your look? Please describe your dress/attire (style, shape, color, fabric, etc.), veil, tie, shoes and accessories. And tell us about your wedding party: What did your bridesmaids and groomsmen wear?

I wore a sweetheart top dress with thick lace on the bodice and a rose colored sash. Chris wore a charcoal grey suit with light grey shirt and a tie with light pink accents. My necklace and earrings were a gift from Chris. My maid of honor wore a plum dress and Chris’s best man wore a light grey suit.

Tell us about your flowers and your bouquet. How did you choose them? Was there any sentimental significance in your choice? What types of flowers did you choose for the bridesmaid bouquets and the groomsmen boutonnieres?

Our flowers were centered around gerber daisies and our florist selected a variety of pink and white flowers to accent the rest of the arrangements. We wanted a spring look and our florist chose flowers that best suit what we wanted for our look.

Please describe your ceremony. How did you decorate the space and the aisle? Did you include any traditions? What were your processional and recessional songs?

Our ceremony was officiated by my brother in law, Scott. It was a very personal ceremony. Chris and I recited our own vows and heard there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

Please describe your reception. Where was it and why did you choose this location? Tell us about the centerpieces, tablescapes, place settings and any other decorations. Did you have any special menu items or signature cocktails? What was your first dance song? How about any additional entertainment, like a photo booth or a cigar bar?

Our dinner was on the back decks of the Mountain Terrace. The weather was perfect for dining outside. After dinner, we moved inside for dancing and dessert. Our first dance was to “Stay Young, Go Dancing” by Death Cab for Cutie. We had a photo booth and a variety of desserts for our guests to enjoy while they danced.

Is there any advice you’d like to share with future couples?

Don’t feel as though you have to adhere to every wedding tradition. We cut out cake cutting, bouquet toss and a few other traditions that we didn’t feel represented us and in return, we got more time to dance!
