am beyond excited to share this wedding, aka Lovefest 2010 (as titled by the bride & groom), with you all. If the title doesn't give you a glimpse into what this wedding entailed, then I hope the photos will! It was a definite representation of both Leora and Adam, their love for each other, travel, burning man, music, food and color. There was so much beauty in this wedding from the unique glass vases, candle holders and other little knick-knacks, all mostly found on Ebay, to the amount of jewel toned colors everywhere.
I spent four days setting up this wedding, as Mayacamas Ranch
is a large open space, but we were putting up a large clear top tent, elevated sisal covered flooring, hanging floral installations and executive restrooms. It was clearly a labor of love by all the vendors involved, and we were so happy with how it came out.
The guests had three days of activities to partake in, and it started with a Friday evening dinner at Clos Pegase
. Guests were then met with a welcome bar with their two custom cocktails when they arrived for the ceremony, and were then in the rose garden for cocktails and a vintage photo booth. Then, dinner began in the tent as the sun was setting, as guests enjoyed a three course meal. There was then a live band, a library for guests to relax in and a full on dessert buffet. We wound that down at 10pm, and moved the guests into the lodge for the after party complete with a pudding bar, a photo booth and a silent disco. Yes, this is where the guests wear wireless headphones and can dance until 4am, which they did! Their day after brunch the following morning in the rose garden was complete with a custom crepe making station showed the guests how this couple really took time to think about every single detail.

ne of my favorite little cafe's here in the Bay Area is La Boulange
(just ask the staff at the Fillmore one, they see me a few times a week!). I was so happy when they started offering their catering services
, since some of the smaller events that we consult for or do ourselves are too small to have a full service caterer. Another nice part about their services is that you are order online, and they even include cute little signs for all your food items!
When I was interviewed recently for Brides Northern California magazine, I was asked what sweet treat I like to include in the out of town gift baskets, and their Macarons de Paris were my instant choice. They are now offering them in ribbon tied bags for favors as well as the out of town gift baskets and dessert bars. Your guests will love them, and they come in so many colors that you can really match it to your wedding concept.
Check out all their options to add a special touch to your next event!

or my fiance and I, creating our registry felt a little weird, since we have been together for so long, but we knew we had to do it because our guests would expect to be able to find one. We decided to start with Crate & Barrel, and went to one of the Sunday morning registry parties
. It was so much fun to sip mimosas and nibble on breakfast foods prepared with all their cook and bake ware. There were also many of their associates on hand who were able to help us find things or answer any questions. I highly recommend it, even for those who are a little hesitant. You can look up and RSVP
for the next one happening in a Crate & Barrel location near you. You even get a little gift for participating.
