From Bella Notte Events... Ellen and Alejandro began dating in the summer of 2013. They met by happenstance when Alejandro had returned to New York City for his summer internship. They were instantly inseparable and kept their relationship flourishing when Alejandro returned to Dartmouth for his final year of business school. It wasn't long before Ellen and Alejandro decided to move to San Francisco together. They were married on September 6, 2015 in bayside town of Tiburon, California.

For the wedding they wanted to have a vintage feel with a modern twist. They selected timeless elements that fit their overall vision. This all came together for them when they discovered the Lyford House for their ceremony. The historic victorian house set on the San Francisco Bay with the city skyline in the backdrop, felt like the perfect combination of vintage and modern with the timeless feel.

For the flowers it was peaches, whites and greens, the bridesmaids wore a marine blue and the groom and his men were in classic black and white tuxedos. Ellen was in a strapless Jin Wang gown with beautiful lace detailing. The Corinthian Yacht Club felt like a seamless fit for the reception. Located in the quaint town of Tiburon, CA also on the SF Bay with wood accents and city views.

The linens were gold with a burnt orange and rose gold, a perfect reflection of the soon to be fall colors. Tall lush floral center pieces with vintage candles holders throughout and white drape with twinkle lights set the scene.

Thoughtful favors of homemade soap (a hobby of the bride) filled the room with a beautiful scent.

The photo booth was active all night as was the dance floor. Alejandro and his family immigrated from Cuba, and the latin music kept everybody moving on the dance floor.

From the Bride... Our planner Cindy Danbom of Bella Notte Events helped bring our design vision together. She has great style and guided us easily with linen choices and decor options. Cindy made the planning process come together and the day was so perfect.
