United States

This casually modern San Francisco wedding by Dream A Little Dream Events is a breath of fresh (sea) air on this Monday afternoon.  Guests were greeted at the sandy beach ceremony with blankets and flip flops setting the tone for a cozy and intimate affair.  A mix of burgundy blossoms, succulents and moss add an eclectic touch to the clever nautical theme.  All the creative details were captured in crisp, contemporary style by Adi Nevo.  Head over to the full gallery to see them all!

From Kathryn of Dream A Little Dream Events... Jenn and Caleb wanted to get married at a location that meant a lot to them, and that was the South End Rowing Club in the Fisherman's Wharf area of San Francisco. They are members and swim there (in the freezing cold San Francisco Bay waters) weekly. We were a perfect fit, as I had worked at this somewhat unknown venue before, and I was ready for the challenge of making their wedding concept of a seaside theme come together, while keeping the guests comfortable. The colors were going to be muted grays, blues, greens with some pops of burgundy reds.

The guests stayed across the street at the Argonaut Hotel. They walked over and were greeted with cozy blankets and flip flops for the sandy beach ceremony. The bride came down the aisle, which was lined in the sand by moss balls and seaweed. Their ceremony literally took place right along the shore, and the officiant even had to ask to be warned if the water was coming up too high! After the ceremony, guests made their way onto the dock and patio for cocktails, before their sustainable buffet was served under the market lights. Each table was named after a sea creature, and the wooden cross back chairs made for a very seaside feel.

They then danced the night away under the stars to the Jugtown Pirates, before cutting their cake made of cheese (another one of their favorite things). Guests danced or lounged in the sand pit until the newlyweds wanted to end their night in only the way they could: they invited their guests to join them for a plunge into the bay! We passed out glow sticks to make sure we didn't lose anyone, and let's just say, some chose not to wear bathing suits.
