Over the Valley – An Elegant Summer Wedding in the Hills of Palo Alto

Jewison and Melissa were one of my last bay area weddings, so it was particularly magical that they chose such an incredible venue with views of the Palo Alto hills and city lights. The Mountain Terrace is just spectacular, featuring a beautiful deck overlooking a vast field surrounded by mature trees, and an intimate indoor hideaway perfect for sipping cocktails and dancing the night away.

Before heading to the hilltop to celebrate the newlyweds, guests gathered at St. Simon Catholic Church to witness Jewison and Melissa join hands in marriage, captured graciously by Silver Sea Weddings. The church was decorated softly with lush greenery and sprinkles of roses, designed by the Mother of the Groom. Melissa wore an elegant gown with just a hint of blush and stunning lace detail. We loved her dainty veil and princess shoes. Jewison wore a permanent smile on his face that paired wonderfully with his handsome blue suit and blush tie.

The couple chose pink and blue florals by Design with Flowers for their reception tables, comprised of bright water goblets and pretty pink linens. We love the rich contrast against the venue’s natural lawn! Guests listened to live music by the Campbell Jazz Soup Band while enjoying cocktails, S’mores, and playing yard games before dinner.

A snapshot of their lives together was displayed in a sentimental slideshow before their first dance. One of our favorite memories from the night was when Melissa played the ukulele while she and Jewison sang a duet. We thought it was so sweet and special that they created this heartfelt performance to share with loved ones on their wedding day!

The night ended with the cutest cake cutting, Rocko’s Ice Cream Tacos and romantic photos under the stars. We feel SO thankful to have been able to share this special day with Melissa and Jewison, and wish them a lifetime of happiness and adventure. Welcome to Married Life!!
