Dani & Jon Tie the Knot!


CONGRATULATIONS to DANIELLE CHAPOT and JONATHON MORRISON!  They were married last June 16th at the Kohl Mansion in Burlingame.  Design concept was replete with french-inspired "shabby chic" elements, creating awe-inspiring elegance and sophistication to their special day.

All of these stunning images were captured by the ingenious talents of Josh Gruetzmacher of Josh Gruetzmacher Photography.  And special kudos to my incredible Team of Wedding Dreammakers who gave them the Wedding of their Dreams!

All earthly goods I wish thee
All that's good for thee and thine
And still, not only earthly
But all we know to be divine

May earth and heaven mingle
May earth and heaven be one
All through your journey
'Til sets your earthly sun

In sunshine and in shadow
Through dancing and in song
May heaven bless your union
Throughout your whole life long
