San Francisco Black Tie Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

This San Francisco affair from Edyta Szyzlo is so refreshing and clean! Bride Annette pulled together touches of green, white, and burlap (with the help of Enjoy Events Co., of course) to create a fresh, relaxing atmosphere.

A little bit from Enjoy Events Co.:

Collaborating with Annette and Danny on their San Francisco wedding was nothing short of a good time! Set at Terra Art Gallery with the open space and art work throughout, we loved adding a few handmade design elements to help round out their vision! Designing the ceremony backdrop by collecting different glass vessels and hanging them with cloth created a simple yet elegant element. The bride herself being a designer created all her paper goods which we helped gather by placing the menu and thank you note in a kraft bag with a custom stamp that we embossed for an extra touch. From the hand stamped menu bags, to the stencil wood piece table numbers and the flower backdrop we loved being part of Annette and Danny’s celebration! The happy couple put together such a beautiful day with some amazing vendors that we were lucky to have been part of!

Dawn Ranch Enchanted Forest Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

There are no words to describe my healthy obsession for this wedding shot by none other than Tinywater Photography. It’s not everyday that we see an enchanted forest wedding done so beautifully, to the nines. It’s one of those themes that can go spooky rather than whimsical, and Jess Flood nailed it. The bride’s pooch was part of their day, so it was only fitting that it dressed up for the occasion sporting French cuffs and a bowtie. You must see Abbey and Josh’s photo gallery for up close images!

From Tinywater Photography: Josh and Abbey’s enchanted forest themed wedding took place at the gorgeous Dawn Ranch Lodge in Northern California’s wine country. Dawn Ranch is located just twenty minutes from the Pacific coast, along the Russian River, and nestled in 15 acres of towering redwood trees and lush riverbank.

They went all out on their enchanted forest theme with handfuls of pine cones, ferns, antlers, moss, and tiny twinkling candles laid out across tables among old weathered antique book pages marking each chapter of the day’s festivities. We truly felt like we had been transported into one big gorgeous daydream!

While rain moved in at the start of the day, the wedding party was prepared and embraced it with pink and polka dotted rain boots and bright purple umbrellas.

Bohemian Bolinas Wedding

DIY Weddings

Photos by:

We’re constantly jealous of brides who get married in sunny California, especially when the location is a small picturesque town like Bolinas. Amelia and Will had a laidback wedding decorated with items from a local antique store and lots of handmade touches — which includes the vintage moon for their photobooth. Melissa of Fresh In Love Photography was on hand to capture it all. Thank you Melissa and Amelia + Will for sharing your gorgeous day with us!

From the bride, Amelia: Will and I were together for seven years before we decided to get married. By the time we got engaged we were just so thrilled about our momentous decision that we didn’t want to wait too long to tie to knot. We had set a wedding date of about 6 months out, so when we went out looking for venues, most of them were booked already. That said, most venues in the Bay Area didn’t feel exactly perfect for us either. There are some beautiful places to get married for sure, but we felt restricted by time limits and required vendors. We knew we wanted to get married somewhere that felt entirely unique too. Then we thought of Bolinas: the gorgeous, bohemian, beach-bum town about an hour north of San Francisco. We had rented houses there for my 30th birthday and the following Thanksgiving; both trips had been very memorable—there’s a sense of awe and calmness that washes over you when you are in Bolinas, it’s very a very creative and happy place. So we were excited when we found Briarcombe, a property of three houses that look like they belong in The Shire. The houses are an inspired fusion of Arts and Crafts and traditional Japanese architecture. Briarcombe was built by a concert pianist and has a beautiful meadow with a wooden stage where small concerts are sometimes held. It was really the most idyllic spot for our wedding. Will and I rented the homes for a few days leading up to the day so our wedding party and our family could come up and stay with us during that special time.

As for our vision, we knew we wanted to have a casual, picnic-in-the-meadow feel for our wedding. We also wanted to have elegant and nostalgic touches. My dress was a dream: a Lela Rose beauty that I had been been coveting for years after coming across it while helping my best friend search for her own perfect dress. The gown had a fairly old-fashioned flair and it informed much of the fashion, decor, and flowers—it became about melding the dress, the house, and the moon…

Vintage Seaside Wedding II

Andy and I wanted a semi destination wedding. So we started looking north along the Coast. Online we found a beautiful White barn that sat on a little beach town off the coast. Cayucos, The Cayucos Creek Barn! Don’t let the name throw you off. Cayucos is bright, welcoming, and a perfect combination of country and small beach town. We had the ceremony and dinner right outside the barn and reception in the barn. Perfect!!! The weather, the fresh ocean air, the fun laid back feel of the barn, Motown music in the background. Perfect!!!

More sweet details from Mercedes: Most of the decorations were home made or found at garage sales and thrift stores. We started right away looking for mason jars, old books and candlesticks on craigslist, or second hand stores. I also hosted a few wedding project nights at my house. Where the girls and I polished tin trays, candlesticks and cake platters. We also covered old tin soup cans with burlap to be used for vases around the barn.

The soup cans were collected for me by the mentally disabled adults that I work with. My Designer and friend made this beautiful frame display out of fishing wire and plastic tubes used to hold water for flowers after they’ve been cut. We used the frames as the back drop of our ceremony. My husband and his guys made an amazing chandelier out of rope, old glass bottles, and light bulbs that hung on stage above the band. I created a L.O.V.E sign out of fabric letters from Anthropologie, chicken wire, ribbon, and an old frame. The Love sign hung at the entrance of the barn and above our head table.

Advice for Brides: Don’t do it all yourself! It’s more fun for everyone promise :) Love your Fiance’ through the whole process of the wedding. Not because your getting married but just because you love him. Don’t make your wedding the focus of the relationship for those few months. It’s refreshing :)

Sarah + Rick’s Backyard Chic Wedding, Part II

Garden Weddings, Real Weddings

Photos by:

Continuing with Sarah and Rick’s intimate wedding shot by rockstar photographer Jessamyn Harris. There are so many DIY details – from planning to design, they did it all. The bold and bright color mix of orange, red and aqua and colorful paper lanterns in this outdoor setting made for a perfect summer wedding.

From the bride, Sarah:

“The idea for the favors originated when my mother lucked into a bunch of gold picture frames. With some help from friends and family, Rick and I created individual collages for every single guest at the wedding! The collages inside the picture frames then doubled as favors and place settings. The materials we used in the collages helped personalize the wedding. We used leftover red, turquoise and gold paper from our invitations, plus images from vintage Hungarian matchbook covers to reflect our time living in Budapest, and images from wedding-themed vintage jazz sheet music to reflect the love of early jazz that brought us together.”
