An opulent Silicon Valley gay wedding with a Veuve Cliquot lounge, Brazilian truffles and an abundance of pink and white flowers

Macio Oliveira and Edgar Martinez married at the Silicon Valley’s turn-of-the-century Dolce Hayes Mansion in San Jose, California.

The two grooms met at the same place when Macio was a plus-one at Edgar’s 40th birthday in 2014. “Four months later, we had our first trip together,” says Macio. “We went to the Caribbean. It was the perfect night: the ocean, the cliff, and a dinner table for two. We were at W Hotel Vieques. We had an eight-course tasting menu. Dom Perignon all night. Before dessert the server brought the special course: a plate with the ring box floating on crushed ice and lots of orchids. His face, his reaction, forever in my heart. And Edgar said YES.”


Macio: “My best friend Maria marrying us; my mother walking me down the aisle; watching Edgar with his daughter walking the aisle; all our friends and family celebrating us, celebrating love. Interesting facts about you and your spouse that you would like to share: We put our hearts and souls to design that beautiful night. Everything was planned to make a memorable night.”


Macio: “Get stressed, get happy, cry, but laugh a lot, stress a bit more, but always have a glass of champagne in your hands, and don’t forget: count on your besties to help you throughout the process. It’s a lot of work, but it’s all worth it. Cheers.”
