Colorful San Francisco Summer Wedding

I don’t think there ever has, or ever will be, a more stylish groom than this one right here. This colorful celebration captured San Francisco’s charm and eclectic personality better than ever and if these pics by Hugo Ahlberg and clip by Daniel Soares don’t make you smile, I don’t know what would.

Whimsical

From the Bride… Have you ever been to an incredible party that you just didn’t want to end? That’s what Joshy and I wanted our wedding to be like. At first we were nervous about the hoighty-toighty expectations of my New York family, but everyone ended up having an amazing time! Stable Cafe was so filled with love and lightness that day, it was beyond special. We used Rings Pops for the ceremony, our dog Mala wore a sweet bow tie, and we ended the night with a huge pizza delivery.

Because I wouldn’t let Josh see my dress before the big day, he wouldn’t tell me about his suit! I knew it would be bright and stylish, but I had no idea he would go all out the way he did!

Built in the 1800’s as Mayor Phelan’s carriage house, Stable Cafe’s refurbished wood finishes and industrial touches felt just right — warm, intimate, and very San Francisco.

From the high-fiving pie toppers to the eucalyptus draped on every chair, each detail really felt like a joyous expression of us. Not only did Joshy hand paint our invitation, he even designed souvenirs for our guests that poked fun at both families — floating yacht club keychains to represent the Ledners and crunchy camp patches to represent the Kobrins!

My favorite part? Besides the ceremony? Definitely speech lotto. We pulled names at random from a basket and had the most wonderful time watching everyone squirm and then ramble on about love!

Beachside Arboretum Shoot at Shelldance Orchid Gardens

Let me just start by saying, I’m kind of beside myself with happiness right now. Gorgeous images (like the ones sitting pretty below from Daniel Kim) tend to do that to me. But when you throw in oodles of gorgeous blooms so pretty I could cry from Hana And Pine on top of that, I kind of don’t know what to do with myself other than sit and stare at all the pretty. So this is me, giving Harvesting Love Events the biggest of virtual hugs for bringing us this shoot, it totally made my day.

From Harvesting Love EventsWhen I first laid my eyes on the Shelldance Orchid Gardens in Pacifica, I immediately fell in love with the space. Not only that, but the beach is right across the street, making it perfect for a gorgeous natural backdrop. Nancy, the curator of the arboretum has an impeccable eye for putting together everything from tropical plants to succulents.

Since the arboretum has a lot of details in the backdrop, my goal for this inspiration shoot was to keep the concept simple. I wanted to make sure that the colors and style complimented the arboretum. Even though we had an amazing venue to work with, it was a bit of a challenge to make sure it didn’t look busy. I ended up getting my color inspiration from the venue and used green, grey, beige, pops of burgundy, and other colors that would go well together. I am also a huge fan of the new indigo plates and it was a must to incorporate into the table setting!

The quality of the vendors’ work went above and beyond my expectations for this inspiration shoot. As a designer/planner, I often get a lot of the credit, but it really takes a team to create something amazing. With the stunning backdrops of the California coast and the natural beauty of the arboretum, this location would be perfect for a bride who is looking for something elegant with a contemporary flair.

Classic San Francisco Wedding at the St. Regis

There is so much stylish goodness sitting in this gallery from Jennifer Skog I don’t even know where to begin. Every image is a beautiful work of art telling the story of this couples’ stunning big day planned by Jubilee Lau Events. From her Oscar De La Renta gown, to their cute pup and every gorgeous detail in between – this gallery can’t be missed. And their film from IQ Videography? It’s magic.

From Jennifer SkogAfter nine years of dating and an unforgettable proposal in Paris, Eric knew he had to top it all off with the wedding of Christine’s dream. We incorporated a lot of our favorite things into the wedding – white hydrangeas and peonies (which we often use to decorate our home), jazz (Christine’s favorite singer is Billie Holiday), a gastronomical experience for our guests (we love to eat and we have visited nearly every Michelin-starred restaurant in the Bay Area), and Parisian macarons (we had macarons every day during our trip to Paris). Christine’s family traveled across the globe from Hong Kong for the celebration. Her youngest sister was a bridesmaid and her other sister helped her prepare the morning of the wedding.

Brownie, our handsome Yorkshire Terrier, whom we affectionately call our son, was the ring bearer and stole the show.
