Jennifer and Phillip met at work. They only dated for about a year and a half when they knew they had to make it official! The reason why they picked a very unusual “Day of the Dead” theme was because Phillip proposed to Jen on November 1st! From the bride: “I took a half day at work, drove to meet him in Oakland and he led me to a room that was dark except for the shimmering Christmas lights. I saw a table with flowers, a red velvet cake, and a sugar skull. He played music, got on one knee, and asked me to marry him. I said yes 🙂 He popped a champagne bottle – we skipped our dinner reservations and found a local Thai restaurant near the Fox Theater, where we later watched and danced to Iron and Wine.” The wedding was all DIY. This included making paper flowers, give aways, spray painted pinatas, centerpieces, programs, etc. It also included blowing the yokes out of hundreds of eggs and stuffing them with confetti to make cascarones eggs: to break them over a loved ones head for good luck. More about the theme from the bride: “Since Phil proposed to me on November 1st (Día de los Muertos), it has become the theme to our amazing wedding. It will definitely look like a colorful fiesta and lots of care and time has gone into the little details around us. Our cake topper was customized by an artist named Clay Lindo, and its a small figurine of a Day of the Dead bride and groom on a Harley Davidson on top of a beautiful cake made by Brita’s Confections. This is because Phil and I commute to work each morning on his bike 🙂 The tables will be labeled by Loteria Cards, and each guest will receive their own Loteria card to keep. Our give aways include fortune fish and home made fortunes (similar to what you would find in a fortune cookie) with individual fortunes and our P + J label on the back. I thought this would reflect nicely with the fact that Lady Luck/fate had brought us together. Love is a gamble! And we got lucky!”
