Real Weddings: Patti & Tony

A gorgeous city backdrop can really add an extra wow factor, and today's wedding from San Francisco proves just that. Winner of our Once Wed gift card giveaway contest last year, Patti and Tony were married at Grace Cathedral, followed by a reception at Park Tavern.

Planning was pretty stressful and last minute as Patti was finishing up her PhD and Tony had just started a company. But the best part of the day was that after four years of long distance and three years of being engaged, they finally made it official and were back together in the Bay Area where they first met.

Patti's sister picked out her wedding dress, and her two best friends from grad school were both in the wedding party - one as a bridesmaid and one as a groomsman. The bridesmaids wore Lela Rose Styles LR153, LR178, LR179 in Charcoal Gray.

It was a pleasure to work with Joielle - I never win anything so it was a wonderful surprise! The fitting advice you gave was spot on and I really loved the color choice and different styles that made it possible for each of my friends to choose something for themselves.

Congrats Patti and Tony! May your journey together be cherished and sweet!
