Montalvo Arts Center, Saratoga, Wedding, California

Montalvo Arts Center is our all time favorite Tuscany-style venue right here in Saratoga California! You don't have to go all the way to Italy! Melody & Jeff were one of the most adorable couple ever - just look at her gorgeous semi-structured ballgown with a french bustle and classic dropped shoulders - complimented by his smart clean-cut tux! Melody & Jeff wanted a wedding full of white and greens! With navy blue pops of her bridesmaids dress and hints of blush and gold through out - Melody & Jeff both come from a traditional american-chinese family so the color "red" is considered a "good luck" color! They wanted to included red in a non-traditional subtle way so we hinted at it in pops of red in their reception floral designed perfectly by Bellevue Floral Co! We highlight their wedding day below with different parts of their wedding that we love, all beautifully captured by the AMAZING Jenny Soi Photography! You don't want to miss this wedding!

Gallery 308, Fort Mason, San Francisco Wedding

We are so excited to share this chic Fort Mason wedding in San Francisco! Becca and James wanted a simple warehouse wedding filled with greenery, tons of candles with an atmosphere filled with laughter - a party next to the ocean! The bride adorned a vintage style dress and make up and the groom's wedding party added a pop of color with his scottish heritage back ground! Captured so beautifully by Ditto Dianto Photography!

The couple made their own seating chart with black and white theme through out! James is a photographer on his free days and they made black and white table names for their guests to admire his work! With the bride's love of purple/burgundy color splashed through out the flowers as well as matching the bridesmaids dresses! 

Our favorite: With James Scottish heritage a special touch to his wedding was how the groomsmen adorned traditional Scottish kilts! Green plaid went so well with such a unique and fun couple!

Hint: If you ever wondered why photographers call it "The Golden Hour" Light and as a planner I always sneak in about 20-30 mins of sunset pictures for the couple because - well just look that these bride and groom portraits on the pier! - the light is so deliciously romantic!

Nella Terra Cellars, San Francisco Wedding

Nella Terra, Sunol, CA Wedding (Winery & Tent Dream!)

Another one for the books at Nella Terra, CA! Christina and Brandon had an amazing Spring Wedding in this beautiful winery where the vines were green and the tent lit up with strings lights and chandeliers! Again, what's more romantic than a garden ceremony and a tented twinkly lights reception? We are so honored to have been a part of their special day with this sweet couple! They wanted lots of green with pops of bright colors and lots of romantic lighting! Their pie dessert table, organic and chic with reclaimed wooden boxes. Our favorite element: A surprise wedding topper for the groom as it was his grandmother's (we love personal heirlooms!) and we picked out gorgeous oak Louie chairs from Pleasanton Rentals for their sweet heart table (always splurge a little for your Bride and Groom chairs!) and a touch of sprigs on each hand painted wooden place cards for decoration.

Our favorite: Christina and Brandon opted out of their face looks and kept it traditional with seeing each other for the first time as she descended the winery stone steps. So romantic! Just check out Brandon's facial expression. It will make you want to cry! (in a good way!)
