Tianna + Oscar

Tianna and Oscar’s love story unfolded over a couple of drinks. Literally.

Tianna shared how they started: Oscar and I met on my 21st birthday at a bar in San Francisco. He was my bartender and made sure the gin & tonics were flowing!”

The pair couldn’t be more perfect for each other: Oscar is a fashion-forward and fun-loving person, while Tianna is an extroverted, funny, beauty who loves to dance.

Both Oscar and I are extroverts through and through. We love socializing, adventure, dancing, music, good food, and great drinks. Family, friends, and our dog is central to our lives. I’m a busy body by nature and have a hard time slowing down, Oscar is good at taking it easy (and forcing me to do the same sometimes). We are each other’s biggest cheerleaders pushing one another to learn, grow, and strive in work and life. We both feel called to serve the community and do so through our work in various ways.”

After 13 years of dating and finally realizing that Tianna was the one for him, Oscar finally popped the question to Tianna at Lake Tahoe last year.

The Big Day

Oscar and Tianna chose to celebrate their wedding ceremony and reception at the famous Tivoli Italian Villa, a beautiful private wedding venue surrounded by lush orchards, stunning mountain views, and herb and olive groves. Both hailing from Nor-Cal, Oscar and Tianna originally wanted to get married in Peru, as a nod to Oscar’s heritage. However, they instead brought a little bit of Peru to the ceremony by incorporating Peruvian textiles, a bright color palette, and Latin music to fill the night.

Oscar broke tradition by wearing a striking red suit and a simple black bow tie as a nod to his unique sense of personal style. An orange and red rose boutonniere completed his wedding outfit. To make it even more special, Oscar’s suit’s inner lining held a personal nod to his late Peruvian father: The words ‘Para mi Papa’ were embroidered in white, to keep his father close to his chest. 

Tianna was a vision in a low-cut, sleeveless gown done in a mermaid cut with a flowing trail. Tianna’s bouquet was a lively explosion of pink, red, and orange blooms courtesy of Fox and Flora. Her hair and makeup were done by Victoria G Hair Design and Karly Ann Glam. The Latin music was provided by DJ Roam and filmed by Amari Productions. The entire wedding was planned by Tivoli’s in-house planner, Autumn Larsen, and photographs were captured by Sweet Paper Media.
