“Love is the creator of our favorite memories, and the foundation of our fondest dreams. Love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be spent, a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places.”
When Patricia came to California on business and happened to meet Arnaud, she immediately knew that it would not be the last time they would encounter each other.
Although their relationship was initially long-distance, Patricia and Arnaud quickly recognized that they had a special connection. When she moved to California, they became an inseparable couple and realized that they had each found their soul mate and life partner.
So on a very warm Wednesday in August, Patricia and Arnaud were married before an intimate group of family and friends, some of whom had traveled from Europe to witness the ceremony.
Their personalized ceremony was the perfect blend of traditional vows and contemporary blessings, with a special, quiet promise given as Patricia and Arnaud exchanged their wedding rings – all sealed with a kiss and a pronouncement of marriage!
The newlyweds chose the beautiful chapel on the grounds of the Union Hill Inn in Sonora, California for their wedding celebration.
Their planner, Allison Silber of Engaged & Inspired Events, took care of all the beautiful details.
Ceremony music was expertly presented by guitarist Jefferson Bergey and harpist Moira Greyland.
After the ceremony, and while the newlyweds were having photos taken, their guests moved to the Upper Pavilion where they enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and music by the Lucky Devils Band.
Congratulations, Patricia and Arnaud! May your love continue to grow and deepen, and may you enjoy many, many years together as a happily married couple!
