Remembering Weekends

This weekend is my first one completely off (no weddings, no meetings, no site visits, nothing) since early March, so I’m heading to the beach to catch up on some sleep, some socializing, and some sunshine (although I may be planning to shoot a tutorial on signature cocktails, so it’s not like my workaholic tendencies have completely [...]

Tracy & Leo’s San Francisco Cocktail Party Wedding

Tracy & Leo’s wedding last fall was combined so many of my favorite wedding things that it’s almost funny looking back at it.

Allison & Kim’s Brazil Room Wedding

Allison & Kim’s wedding was one of those fantastically fun, fantastically hot summer days in the East Bay. The Brazil Room is a Bay Area institution and one of my favorite venues for a wedding – everything is central, and both the outdoor and indoor spaces are gorgeous, and you feel like you’re in the [...]

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 [...]

The lovely team over there and I decided to make it into a regular gig, so starting this week you’ll be able to [...]

Buying Booze for Your Wedding

Last week I pretty much brain dumped everything I know about alcohol and weddings into one big post over at A Practical Wedding. This is one of the topics clients ask me about the most, so hopefully will be helpful to everyone out there currently planning! photo: Hart & Sol West

Hey January

Can someone please explain how it’s January 23rd already? Some random things for you: I haven’t actually tried them yet, but I’m excited about this line of colorful compostable ware from Susty Party. Made out of starch and grass fiber, in the US. Rad. (pictured above) If you haven’t seen Dan Savage’s brilliant column on [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
