Annette and Faber

By Monday, June 17, 2013 2 Permalink 0

This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Annette and Faber’s vow renewal in Los Altos, California. Forty of their closest friends and family members gathered to celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary on Saturday.

The ceremony and reception was held at Joe and Mary’s home, their son and daughter-in-law. Joe also officiated the vow renewal. Both Annette and Faber wrote their own vows. At the end of Annette’s vows, Faber kissed her hand…ahead of schedule. He had to wait to give her a real kiss!

After the ceremony, the family gathered for a few photographs while the guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and drinks from Thomas John Events poolside.

The reception area was beautifully decorated with lush floral arrangements by Susan Groves. The tables sparkled with gold accents and mercury glass vases.

During dinner, the guests toasted the happy couple. We even got to hear how the two of them originally met. Long story short… their matchmaking relatives were right about the two of them being a perfect match! The evening ended with cake and more laughter.

Congratulations Annette and Faber on your 55th wedding anniversary!

This beautiful event was coordinated by Jean Marks, who was assisted by Anthony White. The guests enjoyed beautiful music of harpist Tamara Mead throughout the evening. And, Oren of Legacy Films was on hand to record the entire event for the family.
