From the bride… You’re going to love this wedding. Simple, modern, whimsical, romantic and best of all DIY. Guests were picked up in front of the beautiful San Francisco Ferry Building and given a beautiful tour of the city and Golden Gate Park where the ceremony was held. Just 60 guests were greeted with quiet acoustic guitar music and the incredibly unique windmill and gorgeous flowers of the Queen Wilhelmina Tulip Garden. The ceremony was short and sweet and afterwards guests were driven back to the Embarcadero via the scenic route of the Golden Gate Bridge and China Town while munching on caramel corn made by the groom’s mother. The reception was held at the gorgeous all organic restaurant The Plant Cafe. Local cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery were paired with local wines during cocktail hour. For dinner guests were given the choice of truffle pizza from there wood fired pizza oven, coconut encrusted halibut and adobe chicken with quinoa and grilled peaches. Dessert was served with local Blue Bottle coffee and consisted of salted caramel truffles, coconut marshmallows and peach cannolis made by the pastry trained bride. The couple did the traditional bouquet toss, wedding party speeches and cake cutting in a very relaxed and non traditional manner. Every detail of the wedding was handmade for example the table runners were made by the groom’s mother. Place cards, program fans and the cupcakes in jars as wedding favors were all done by the bride. This wedding had Elliott and Jesep written all over it. Unique, classic, simple, fun, relaxed, stylish and most importantly full of love!
