J+J Wedding | Sir Francis Drake Hotel | San Francisco

Beautiful location, adorable bride with red hair and a wedding dress full of ruffles. This wedding was brimming with personality!  We used shades of orange with purple accents since the Sir Francis Drake Hotel had these colors as part of their decor.
Venue: Sir Francis Drake Hotel, San Francisco
Chair Covers: Especially Yours Chair Covers
Photographer: Vero Suh Photography

Here a couple of photos I took

Both Jenny and James travel a lot for their work.  They had the most adorable little luggage favors I have ever seen.  They doubled as seating cards too.  Loved them!

Y+I Wedding | Legion of Honor San Francisco

Yulia and Igor planned their wedding in four months!  They started the process right by choosing a beautiful venue.  The Legion of Honor is something else.  It's just beautiful.  No words can really describe it but trust me.  It's gorgeous there.  Not to mention there are plenty of photo opportunities there.
We originally planned to do something with branches but the museum doesn't allow any dried branch material there (for the fear of little insects) that could damage the art.  So we went to plan B which was something structured and modern to match the art and statues in the main room.

Venue: Legion of Honor San Francisco
Catering: Jane Hammonds Events
Colors: Shades of white with blue accents

Bride's Bouquet: hydrangea, calla lilies, dahlia, stephanotis, tweedia, roses

T+M Wedding | Portola Valley Presbyterian Church | Sheraton Hotel Palo Alto

When I first met Tristan, I knew that we would get along just fine. First of all, she has a cool name.  Second of all, she brought her mother with her who was so excited about her daughter's wedding that it was infectious.  They came with a pretty good vision - something whimsical and fairy tale like with twinkling lights and butterflies.  Tristan made it clear to me she was not a traditional bride - she wanted something with texture and bright green flowers. And no roses.

Bout: calla lily with curly willow and berry accents
Bridesmaid Bouquet: green hydrangea with white mums, and dahlias
 Cute little green kermit mum bout for the ring bearers
Green dendrobium orchids for the ushers
 Tall Centerpiece: curly willow, bells of ireland, hydrangea, spidermums
dendrobium orchids with silver butterflies and hanging votives

Garland for the church with little butterflies
