Kai and Alisha's Wedding at Foreign Cinema

Our first meeting was at a gourmet pizza parlor in Berkeley where we chatted for hours over burrata cheese, beer, and delicious pizza. I remember leaving the meeting feeling like we just hung out with some cool friends. That meeting was certainly indicative of the type of clients Kai and Alisha would be for us---trusting, laid back, and just all around awesome.

Indeed, we had a blast working with this fun couple. They picked the Foreign Cinema as their wedding venue, and it was perfect for them. The vibe, the decor, the food....it was all so fitting for their personalities!

Guests first witnessed their sentimental ceremony in the courtyard, where Kai and Alisha's good friend sang "I Choose You" to celebrate their matrimony. Then, everyone moved into the art gallery for cocktail hour before re-entering the courtyard for lovely al fresco dinner underneath strings of Italian lights, with their favorite movie playing in the background.

There really are no boundaries when it comes to love, and this wedding was a reminder that all love is worth celebrating.

San Francisco Engagement Photos

I'm in love with the city that I grew up in. San Francisco truly is one of my favorite places! Despite having traveled to many different parts of the world, I'm always happy to come back and call San Francisco home. So, when I saw these beautiful engagement photos of my clients in one of the prettiest neighborhoods (Potrero Hill) in San Francisco, I swooned...

Emily and Howard's Wedding at Asian Art Museum

Back in March, Emily and Howard exchanged their vows right out of the backyard in their Los Altos home, in front of a handful of close friends and families. It was their intention to keep the ceremony small and private, while the reception would be one awesome party with all of their friends and families. They definitely achieved both!

We brought in Paula Le Duc Fine Catering to design a culturally diverse menu. To create a more relaxed and fun party, Emily and Howard steered away from a formal seated dinner and opted for food stations instead. There was a taco, poke, and spam musubi station, an Indian station, a modern dim sum cart that rolled around as you'd see at a Chinese restaurant, a sweets station, and even a sake station! Guests got to move around and mingle while indulging in the delicious food, while the groovy music of a jazz band played in the background.

We definitely had a party crowd at this wedding, and after 10pm, guests rocked away to the tunes played by DJ Chris the Rebel!

Aurora and Conroy's Wedding at Four Seasons Hotel

Some people are just destined to be together. Aurora and Conroy were one of those couples. You meet them, and you are instantly swept away by their sweet, genuine relationship. Their love for each other is so pure, and so real that you just know they belong together. 

Aurora is one of the sweetest and kindest person you'll ever meet. An artist, and a free-spirited girl at heart, she has always wanted an intimate beachside wedding. Their large guest list, and logistical considerations, had them change that vision to a city ballroom wedding instead. Conroy, being the romantic fiancĂ© that he was, still wanted to make Aurora's dream come true, and so they flew to Maui and had their private ceremony right on the beach! 

Their wedding in San Francisco was held at the Four Seasons Hotel, right in the heart of downtown. We transformed all the event spaces to a blank canvas by piping and draping all the walls, allowing us to design the luxe and romantic wedding that Aurora asked for. Since Aurora is an artist, and Conroy an art collector, we created 2 art galleries at the Four Seasons. One featured Conroy's favorite art collections while the other featured Aurora's amazing pieces. It was the perfect way to incorporate their passion for art at their wedding.

There were 265 guests at the wedding, but we were still able to create a warm, inviting, and intimate ambiance inside the ballroom, with lots and lots of candles, orchids and special lighting. Two orchid filled manzanita branches flanked the altar area, where Aurora and Conroy exchanged their meaningful vows that they wrote to one another. Aurora changed from the Jin Wang gown that she wore in the bridal party photo session to another stunning gown, by Vera Wang, as she processed down the aisle with both her beloved parents.

In a little over one hour, while guests were drinking and eating in merriment at the cocktail hour, our amazing team of vendors came together to flip the ballroom from ceremony to dinner + dancing. It was definitely an adrenaline-filled hour as everyone moved swiftly throughout the ballroom to work around one another.
