Renee and Tim - Admiral's Mansion, Mare Island, Vallejo

October, 2016. Photos: Wellshot Photo Co.

This was the second wedding Hitch Perfect coordinated at the Admiral's Mansion. What is so special about this venue is how much space there is - both inside the mansion and outside on the grounds - to make the day unique for each couple's individual vision. Since October is a particularly good month for weather in the Bay Area, Tim and Renee wanted to use the outdoor spaces as much as possible. They and their attendants got ready inside and as you can see below, the grand staircase made for some stunning photos. All other elements of the day were outside: ceremony, cocktail reception, dinner, toasts, and dancing.

Renee and Tim also had the good fortune to have a baker friend who not only created a stunning cake, but all of the other desserts for the dessert bar.
