Just a few photos from the wedding. It took place in Napa Valley, CA last week. Since the Otion Store Manager also is my brother, I was lucky enough to be a bridesmaid. And, my father? He was the ordained Minister that performed the ceremony.
It was an extraordinarily happy day for the entire Faiola Family. These photos were taken while the “real” phographer was taking her photographs so excuse the slightly off-kilter look of some (okay, all) of the people in the photographs.
Erik and his bride, during the Father-of-the-Bride toast. Notice the amazing lace overlay on the dress.
The Faiola Family, complete with Mom, the Pastor (our Dad), the bride, me and my amazing husband.
Erik and his new bride are in Greece on their honeymoon. Their “child”, Samantha the dog, is in good hands at a local doggie day care with visits from her adoring Aunt (yippers, that would be me).
When the “real” photographs come in, I’ll post a few more that do the dress and the day justice.

Congrats to you all. Your family looks so beautiful in that picture~ you can see and feel all of the love.
Your Mom looks absolutely gorgeous in that dress! I just love it!
All the best to Erik & his Bride!
How do you spell "Huppa?"
Wow, that dress is stunning! Everyone looks beautiful.
Its so special to have family perform the ceremony. My grandfather was one of the officiates at our wedding…its one of my best memories of him.
Cheers to the happy couple = )
It was amazing to have my Dad perform the ceremony. His remarks were very moving for the entire family and he’s a great speaker. Several people told me afterward that my Dad’s talk had “made” the entire ceremony for them.
Congratulations to your brother Erik and his beautiful bride! Love the bride’s gown! Everyone looks so happy and gorgeous in the photos.

Just beautiful~ what a blessing to have all the family there. The bride looked beaming, and your brother is very handsome. It must have been extra special for your father to perform the ceremony.

The bride’s dress is incredible! I love the lace overlay (wish I could sew with lace). And Greece…I’m so jealous! They’ll have a fantastic time.
Samantha is lucky to have a doting aunt. 😉
