August 1 | Vine Hill House
ometimes we get to work with a couple on the design only element of their wedding, which can be really fun, especially when the bride and groom have such a pretty vision of what they want to begin with. I really enjoyed working with them to get the right rental pieces together for their wedding from different sources, and providing the right vendors to make sure that vision came to fruition. The goal was to keep everything simple and approachable, while keeping in line with the venue aesthetics.
We are so happy with how everything turned out, and excited to share these images from Kelly Boitano
from their wedding at Vine Hill House in Sebastopol.
San Francisco Wedding Planner
e were very excited to learn today that were were voted by our peers in the industry as the Best Wedding Planner in San Francisco on Borrowed & Blue. To be honored by the vendors we work with day in and day out means a lot to us, as they see all that goes into what we do for every wedding and event, and to be acknowledged for it is a wonderful feeling.

Article on Martha Stewart Weddings
appy Friday! I saw this article
this morning, and had to share it, since it lists the #1 regret we always hear from clients, and that was not having a videographer. This also includes the clients that had a friend that had a video camera at the wedding, it never captures everything, since they are also a guest, so it is definitely something to consider if you feel it will be important to you in the future.
From a personal stance, I can truly say that we LOVE our wedding photos, and they are incredible, but I wouldn't be okay if we didn't have the film of that day. It captured so much, and being able to watch it with our 2.5 year old son a few weeks ago as we celebrated our 4th anniversary was priceless.

There are other things that this article points out that these brides wish they had done differently, and I can say that having a planner/coordinator is one we don't often hear from our own clients, since they hired us, but from friends that didn't think it was necessary. From the advice and guidance before the wedding down to every detail being executed on the wedding day, planners provide a high level of ease to brides knowing their day is in the right hands.
Enjoy the weekend,

Flood Mansion | May 30
his time of year means that we have just a little downtime to actually share some of the amazing weddings we produced this past year, and we're so happy to share this one from the Flood Mansion in May. Kathryn & Roberto were incredible clients to work with, they wanted a pretty wedding, navy and white, and they selected a perfect vendor team to execute their wedding flawlessly. I do many Flood Mansion weddings, and they are all very different, and this one was able to bring somewhat of an outside feeling indoors with the white wood crossback chairs and olive branch garlands.

, and watch for another post on this wedding, as it will be soon featured on The Knot.
Congrats to this beautiful couple, and all of our 2015 newlyweds! Wishing you nothing but love and happiness in your new lives together.
