Blu Bungalow

Very excited to share that Huckleberry Karen Designs is now part of the wonderful family of Blu Bungalow!  What is Blu Bungalow?  It's a wedding planning boutique where newly engaged couples and brides can swing by and get some expert advice on planning their wedding (or any other event).  The best part?  It's free.  Yeah, that's right.  It's free.  You can walk in and gather some resources, take a look around and plan away.  I had the pleasure of visiting Blu Bungalow last month and the place is amazing.
The location?  Even better.  It's on Union Street in San Francisco where you can get all sorts of shopping done.  Some of my favorites on Union Street are:

- The Union Street Papery (All the invitation eye candy you can think of)
- Forget Me Knots Bridal (Adorable wedding dress boutique where you can buy dresses off the rack.  I actually bought my bridal veil there)
- Haute Bride (Gorgeous bridal accessories including shoes, hair pieces, jewelry and couture bridal gowns)
- That Takes the Cake (for yummy cupcakes - the red velvet is to die for)

So basically, you can get all sorts of wedding stuff done on Union Street in San Francisco!

N+N Wedding | Ralston Hall & Mansion| Belmont, CA

One word for this wedding: STUNNING.  The bride, Niloofar, really gave me some creative freedom - she showed me some photos of flowers she liked and let me run with it.  And run I did.  I had so much fun putting it all together and quite pleased how everything turned out.  I think that Niloofar's bouquet is probably my favorite bouquet I have made thus far.  The thing was HUGE and I jokingly told her that she would need to work out in order to hold the bouquet.

Here are some of the photos I was able to get - Niloofar was generous to share some of the professional images she has received so far and I"ll be sharing those in a bit.
