A very special birthday!

This weekend one of my dear friends, Maxine Andrew's husband had a big birthday. Which one? I'm not telling! Being a planner extraordinaire, Maxine designed a gorgeous setting at her beautiful hillside home for their closest friends & family (and dogs!). And check out that garden! I loved being there with them.















Thrilled to be featured on The Knot! And even more thrilled to have worked with such an amazing couple & group of vendors at such an incredible location. Sure makes my job easy 





Engagement Session at Bartholomew Winery

Mary Claire and Mat are getting married! To celebrate we met at Bartholomew Park Winery in Sonoma (it was once a hospital - Mat's dad was born there!). MC and Mat are gorgeous, but I really think their stunning English Bulldog, Emma stole the show.







Megan + Mat | San Francisco

Megan and Mat had a perfect San Francisco wedding.  Hitched in our fabulous City Hall, enjoying champagne while being toted the city in my Prius, walking the streets of North Beach, and then meeting all their friends and family at Original Joe's.  I loved it all... from Megan's nontraditional (and ahhmazing) wedding dress to the Giants being broadcast during cocktail hour.  It was everything our wonderful city has to offer.  Perfection.

A Perfectly Glamorous SF Wedding

This amazing couple had the epitome of glamorous San Francisco weddings! Getting ready at the Fairmont San Francisco, married at Grace Cathedral and reception at a private club. Even with all that glamour, the wedding (and the couple!) was down to earth, sometimes silly, and most of all fun!  Topped off by working with some of the best vendors in the bay truly made this one of my favorite weddings of the year!
