With tomorrow being Valentine’s Day, what better time than now to feature our most romantic wedding from last year. Just recently published on the popular Style Me Pretty blog, George and Joyce’s wedding was a wonderland filled with vibrant eye candy. Inspired by the shabby chic style, the couple handmade every detail from the invitations, sticker monograms and even lace chiffon backdrop. They incorporated old world charm with vintage trunks, milk glasses and tea cups while using bright colors of red, magenta, yellow and green. They even brought in their Asian roots treating guests to a mouthwatering menu which included Dim sum, Korean BBQ short ribs, a sushi station, and bubble tea. The day was a beautiful reflection of their fun, thoughtful and timeless relationship. Congratulations Joyce and George!

Ariel and Dennis: August 6, 2011

The first time I met Ariel and Dennis, we had an instant connection.  They’re the sweetest, most easygoing couple and not to mention we share a mutual love for cats (see their engagement shoot). The couple envisioned an intimate and simple wedding with their close family and friends. Since most of their family was coming from abroad, they thought what better way to thank them for coming than to treat them to the Californian coast. The Half Moon Bay Golf Links served as the perfect location and we chose soft palettes of blue and white to complement the beautiful scenery. The ceremony took place in the morning and guests enjoyed a reception lunch leaving the couple time to play in the ocean that afternoon. It was the perfect way to start their new lives together! Congratulations to my fellow feline lovers!

In such a fast-paced and digital place like the Bay Area, we are so lucky to have The Poetry Store who offers the simple and beautiful gift of poetry. Silvi uses her red royal typewriter to entertain guests by writing poetry wedding favors. The poems are one-of-a-kind and written on-the-spot about any subject of your guests choosing. She even types these poems on beautiful paper matched to your wedding’s theme. Can you imagine anything more romantic, unique and appropriate for your wedding? Your guests will be blown away by how she listens and captures their emotions. The Poetry Store is definitely the diamond the haystack!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! I’m so excited for this year. We have so many fun and unique weddings coming up, including a flash mob ceremony and backyard oasis reception.
