Sharon Heights Country Club Wedding | Monica + Franck

by Lara

Monica and Franck celebrated their union in their parent’s back yard in Woodside, California.  This couple had some really interesting, personal details built into their wedding design that we just loved!  The bride is a veterinarian and had her beloved dog walk with her down the aisle.

Franck and Monica wanted a close family and personalized feeling to their wedding.  Franck is from France and all of his relatives joined in the backyard for their ceremony which was officiated by her uncle.  After the ceremony, they held a tree planting ceremony to symbolize their growth together as a married couple.   Monica wore blue earrings and a Carolina Herrera gown that were gorgeous!

The groom is a huge fan of The Muppets and Kermit the Frog so he sported some ultra-snazzy Kermit socks!   The groomsmen also wore Muppet themed socks to carry this theme on throughout the affair.  We loved the originality and uniqueness of their personal touches to the wedding.   We also thoroughly enjoyed the couple’s entrance to the reception when the DJ played the Muppet theme song for them to greet their guests as a married couple for the first time!  Now, that is an entrance!  They even had Kermit himself as part of a flower arrangement!

Monica and Franck continue the themed reception at Sharon Heights Country Club with touches of Kermit inspired green throughout the venue, even into their culinary design, which tied everything all together.   To offset the green, they chose a deep plum red, which was the perfect complimentary color for a gorgeous palette to their reception area.

Franck is French and so they had a French styled wedding cake, a Croquembouche (pronounced as ‘crow-come-bush’).  The Croquembouche is a cone of cream puffs filled with French pastry cream and then coated with caramelized sugar and decorated with elegant marzipan roses made petal by petal.  This is such a gorgeous French wedding cake and everyone enjoyed seeing Franck’s heritage tied into the cuisine.

Congratulations Monica & Franck!

I remember watching Julia Childs & Jacque Torres make that fabulous cream puff tower…it looks amazing! My only attempt at cream puffs was a complete and total disaster…I’m sticking to pies!
As always, LOVE these photos. The colors in the bouquet are shocking! Great work!
