GLENN & DARLENE | Franciscan Gardens Wedding

Darlene & Glenn’s wedding was amazing on so many levels that i can’t even think where to begin. First of all, they did everything THEMSELVES! say what?!?! yeah, it’s true. From finding vintage cake stands and plates and painting them white to create a modern, cohesive feel to hanging cloth poms all they way down to their kicks for the day….grey & yellow custom chuck taylors (okay, so maybe they didn’t make these but they designed them! :) ) no detail was spared!

on top of that we were able to see 4 of our past clients again (something we ALWAYS love), witness some pretty spectacular dance moves, eat delicious tacos from a late night food truck that they commissioned and above all, document so many touching, tearful & hilarious moments!

it was blast and we are so lucky to be a part of it all!

Candis & Adrian had the best sermon at their wedding. The priest compared marriage to chewing gum….delicious & flavorful at first but after time it gets old and dull. he, of course, said to try to avoid feeling this way. everyone was cracking up!

KATIE & DAVIN | Ultimate Skybox Wedding

You know when you meet a couple and you just know they are meant for each other? That’s Davin & Katie. They both have an incredibly calm nature and, as can be attested by all their friends & family, are extremely generous and selfless.

Their wedding ceremony took place at the Embarcadero and their reception at the Ultimate Skybox both of which was a first for us! :) The set up was classy yet casual with open seating and super chic lounge furniture. I loved the set up! Lots of mingling & tons of room to dance! And believe me…there was some serious dancing going on! Oh, and they also attached $50 to the bouquet & garter to ensure maximum participation. I’ve seen $5 even $20…but never $50. I told you they are generous! :)

We were so honored to be a part of their day and I seriously could have gotten paid with grilled cheese sandwiches and tater tots from Davin’s restaurant & bar, The Corner Bar. So delicious!

Davin wrote a poem for Katie as his wedding gift. It was definitely a tear jerker!
