It is very stressful as a wedding planner to have to plan your own wedding. The expectations are always high! One of our very own wedding planners, Elise, did just that, and hit the nail on the head when it came to designing her own wedding. Her wedding was held at Paradise Ridge Winery, and was captured by the always magnificent Josh Gruetzmacher We are happy to share the images now that the wedding was featured on Ruffled last week, enjoy!
While Elise now lives on the East Coast, we are still watching her as she transforms old furniture and knick-nacks into complete treasures. All the furniture and design items were created by Elise herself. We hope she moves back soon!

Sometimes you read a story that rocks you to your utter core. Sometimes, that story becomes even worse, to where it is unbelievable. It makes you feel helpless sitting there in your own life complaining about stupid things, or obsessing about others. It makes you want to do something, anything. Then you realize when you go to the donation page, that you actually knew this sweet man. That smile is unmistakable. This family has now faced the unthinkable, you can read the story that is on the SF Chronicle's site today here.

This news came just as we were getting ready to send out check out to the Make A Wish Foundation for our annual giving campaign on Monday. While we are sending that one out, we are also going to now hold a campaign for this family during the month of February, so a portion of all new contracts signed will be sent directly to their Wells Fargo contribution account. We already have two booked this week so far, so we are on our way. Though it is small in comparison, I hope to continue to do more, and am always open to hearing great ways of fundraising for this family.
Even if you aren't getting married or booking with us, you can still consider donating on their donation site (where you can see this little guy singing Roar, it is so sweet!).
With much love,

Kim & Jeff's wedding, which took place in September 2013, was amazingly stunning. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean below, they got married on a beautiful cliff-side ceremony. Adrianna produced this wonderful wedding, and we are so happy to share it now that it has been featured on The Knot. Enjoy these lovely images from Larissa Cleveland.

What a great way to start 2014 with a feature on Martha Stewart! We have been waiting to share Charlene & Bram's lovely wedding for a long time now, and we finally can now with it being featured on Martha Stewart Weddings. This wedding was so much fun to plan, as this couple was not only immensely creative, but they were a delight to work with. Every detail was so thoughtfully executed, and her dress, I don't need to even say anything about how beautiful it was.
Kate Harrison captured their day brilliantly, always one of our favorites (she did my wedding too!).
Happy New Year!
& our chosen charity is...

As we did last year , we have chosen a designated charity to receive 10% of all our weddings signed in January. This year though, we are extending the signing period to be from Dec 15-Jan 31. January is our biggest signing month annually, so that is why we choose this time of year for our offering campaign. Last year Sandy Hook Elementary School Family Fund received our donation, and it was a very emotional one, as we really were shaken by the events that took place there last December.
This year we chose the Make A Wish Foundation. It is a charity that I have personally seen make amazing things happen for children that are going through a very rough time health wise. I have donated to them personally, and this year, we decided they would be a great one for our company to donate to. This was decided before Batkid, and that only made the reasoning stronger, as this is a foundation that really does make these dreams come true for these affected children.
We do want to wish everyone a very joyous holiday and wonderful New Year!
Peace to all,
As Seen In...
