I wanted to share a few gorgeous detail shots by Ingrid Nelson of Myrtle & Marjoram Photography, from a wedding we worked on in August. 

Set in the heart of wine country among rolling hills and fields of the most spectacular heirloom garden roses, Annadel Estate Winery is truly a magical setting-the epitomy of what one would call rustic elegance. We loved everything about this wedding, and hope to be back to Annadel again soon.

The bride knew she wanted the feel to be natural, yet refined incorporating local branches and herbs such as olive, lavender, and sage in the floral arrangements. We decided on a palette of neutral tones of ivory and sage green with pops of color, such as butter yellow and apricot. From there she let us run with what was local, in season, and most gorgeous. We were able to source all of our garden roses from the Annadel farm itself, and geez..they were stunning!

Thanks to Ingrid (of Myrtle & Marjoram) for capturing the gorgeous photos below. Coordination by Jennie Janzen.

Just got these beautiful photos back from Alison Yin Photography, from a wedding we worked on in June. Huge thanks to Alison and Adam for sharing these with us!

The bride and groom, Jenevieve and Percy, found us through a Style Me Pretty feature from a wedding we worked on at Viansa last September. Gotta love the beauty of the internet! Planning their wedding from a distance (they currently live in Singapore) we didn't meet until days before the wedding, and did most of the discussion of 'the details' via email and skype. With a clear vision of what they had in mind, they made planning easy and were truly a pleasure to work with! We are thankful to have been a part of their gorgeous day.

Zazie Cole Valley Wedding

I made friends with the loveliest Australian couple last summer. Bec and Michael hold San Francisco dear to their hearts and planned a destination wedding for a group of their 30 closest friends who made the trip all the way to CA for their special day. I'm so glad we had the opportunity to be a part of it all. They were truly the nicest people! And their love for each other so very apparent. I've been meaning to post about this wedding for months.

Part of the reason I think I loved this wedding so much was the intimate setting, which I too, hold near and dear. Their ceremony was in Golden Gate Park near Chain of Lakes, and their reception on the back patio at one of my favorite and most charming of neighborhood restaurants, Zazie. 

There were so many great details about the day. Bec and I worked on event design as well as florals. We also helped orchestrate a tea station for guests to enjoy treats and a cup after the ceremony. We worked with Lucy Vowles from My English Tea party, who has a gorgeous inventory of vintage crockery. Lucy also created beautiful custom hand made bunting that we hung around the space. Batter Bakery provided an array of sweets, and the tea was local favorite, Red Blossom Tea.

Jonas Peterson photographed the day- he's brilliantly talented and I'm now a huge fan. Just have a look at the gorgeous work below...
