Rachel & Danny’s Tiburon Wedding

Rachel & Danny’s Tiburon wedding made some of the best use of the Bay that I’ve ever seen. Their ceremony was right on the water at the Lyford House (part of the Audobon Center & Sanctuary) and, I mean, take a look: The reception was down the road at the Corinthian Yacht Club, which I [...]

Stephanie & Woody’s Joy Filled Sonoma Wedding

Stephanie and Woody were living on the East Coast when they originally booked me to plan their wedding, and I didn’t actually meet Steph in person until we’d been working together (over the phone and email) for almost six months (I did, however, meet Woody before we signed a contract – only the second time [...]

Karen & Stephen’s 40th Anniversary Party

Somehow in the middle of wedding season I managed to throw a party (along with my sister) for my parent’s 40th anniversary. Forty is the “ruby” anniversary, so we decked out the venue (the Piedmont Community Center, chosen in no small part for the fact that my parents can walk there from their house) in [...]

Amy & Greg’s Intimate Evening Gallery Wedding

Amy & Greg’s wedding was at Foreign Cinema, one of my favorite venues in the Bay Area (also, one of my favorite restaurants in the Bay Area!) It was a perfect blend of close friends and family, incredible food, a beautiful setting, and a lot of love. From the start they were focused on keeping [...]

Rhodessa & Eric’s Gorgeous Pleasanton Wedding

Rhodessa and Eric got married at Castlewood Country Club, which is an amazingly beautiful venue – I mean, take a look at the tree that makes up the background of the ceremony space: But beyond beautiful, this wedding was also a blast. Rhodessa and Eric went to a lot of effort to make sure their [...]

Briana & Kellen’s Country Club Dance Party Wedding

Briana and Kellen’s wedding at Oakland’s Claremont Country Club (where Kellen is a tennis pro, and Bri’s family are long time members) was a blast. Country club weddings have a reputation as being stuffy, and this wedding was anything but. Briana had the bridesmaids pick out their own black dresses, and then bought them shoes [...]

Chris & Eric’s Russian River Vineyard Wedding

Chris & Eric’s wedding was awesome – there’s just not really a better word to describe it. I mean, any party with more than 10 people in kilts just kind of wins in my book, and two grooms in kilts? Hell yeah. The decor was incredible – Chris & Eric and their friends and family [...]

Kate & Phil’s Sonoma Eclipse Wedding

Kate and Phil had a destination wedding in Sonoma, one of my favorite places in the world. If you’ve never been to Healdsburg, put it on your list – it’s an almost painfully adorable town. The wedding itself was up the road at Trentadue Winery, who make some of the best port around, and have [...]

Kay & Brian’s Field & Barn Wedding

Kay & Brian got married at Coquelicot Vineyards* on the edge of the town Solvang, CA, which has to be one of the most adorable and one of the oddest places around – it’s a Danish theme town established in 1911, and is totally worth a visit if you’re ever in the Santa Ynez Valley. [...]

Sophie & Ouma’s Cinqo de Mayo Wedding

Sophie is a life-long friend of mine (our moms are best friends from college, and she and her sister are more like cousins to me than friends) and it was such a total joy to get to be a part of their wedding – they’re simply one of the best couples I know. May fifth [...]
