A Bride that fully admits she loves everything gold and Parisian with pink thrown in for good measure? She might as well work for SMP. Because those lovely things run through our veins. Add the fact that she decided to tie the knot at San Francisco City Hall? And we are officially besties. Long story short, we love every detail of her big day, and thanks to Ahava Studios you can peek at all the pretty right here.

From Ahava Studios... Judy & Dan's gorgeous modern french romance wedding was an affair to remember for guests and the couple, with a beautiful ceremony at the top of the San Francisco City Hall, followed by a trolley car ride for every guest along the Embarcadero and Ghiradelli square. Cocktail hour and the reception was at the famed Foreign Cinema, where the french film "Amelie" played in the background during the event.

This wedding was heavily DIY, with Judy spending months and months crafting the perfect details. Vast majority of reception decor was DIY by the bride, including the Polaroid "Photo Shop!"

From the Bride... Our honeymoon destination to Paris inspired our romantic theme. I have always loved Gold anything so pink and gold was the perfect romantic color pallet. Once we chose our colors, and finalized our invitation suite, it was easy to find items that fit our look. If we didn't find anything perfectly Gold or Pink, our handy spray paint bottles did the trick! Once your heart is set on a theme and color palette, start shopping at craft stores and researching best prices online. Keep a running log of all the supplies you have purchased and know what you already have in your stock to work with.
