Sea of Blue wedding | Martinez

Aly Pickersgill and Christian Holmes were married on August 9, 2014 in Martinez, California.   The event marked the day Christian joined a very talented family.  Christian, himself a videographer, along with Aly is the talent in Glitch Films, and somehow they managed to film their own wedding, along with Bryan Gibel.  Aly is also an artist and drew the figures for the wedding cake and the decorations.  The bride’s mother, Lisa, spent months designing and landscaping the backyard to turn it into an incredible venue for the wedding.  The Groom’s Godmother, Merry Sturtz, was in attendance from Maui and conducted the ceremony, and the Bride’s father, William Pickersgill, who sings in the San Francisco opera, sang before the wedding.  The wedding was coordinated by Annie Love, who used to be a stage manager, and was attended by many of the artists who create the Bracebridge dinner at Yosemite every year.  The bride wore a flowing cream colored BHLDN gown and jewelry from her family members, some borrowed, some blue.  The couple had asked all the attendees to wear various shades of blue, particularly cobalt, turquoise and sky blue, so everyone looked like they were part of the wedding as the entire event looked like a sea of blue.
