Jen and Jeff

by Jessica on May 6th, 2013 in Real Weddings | No Comments

It’s a simple story of a set-up by a friend.  This friend knew two people from Michigan and figured- how could they not be a match?  Turns out, this silly logic was absolutely right- cut to 5 years later, Jen and Jeff’s wedding at Cavallo Point.  These two have some seriously adorable chemistry, and I feel so lucky to have been a part of their special day, along with two of my favorite vendors- Sarah Peet behind the camera and Kate’s Blossoms on gorgeous flower detail. Bright spring green prints and natural flowers in beautiful blue bubble glass showcased the season.  To honor Jeff’s career as a bar manager the couple gave adorable mini bottles of St. Germaine with a specialty drink recipe attached as favors.  Jen and Jeff, I miss you already- congratulations!!

Jean and Tim

Jean and Tim hosted their destination wedding at Cavallo Point, as an homage to their past life as San Franciscans.  During wedding planning they lived in Georgia, and had busy professional lives.  As such, they kept the wedding planning simple, bringing together many close family friends to offer their talents from florals to photography.  One example of this was their delightful photographer, Hardy Wilson.  Hardy is a newspaper photographer, and his photojournalistic approach yielded possibly my favorite wedding photo of all time (Very last photo posted here).  I hope you love these sweet images of their special day as much as I do!

Kate and Raymond’s Murray Circle Reception

by Jessica on March 15th, 2013 in Real Weddings | No Comments

This next wedding, was not actually one that I was in charge of, as it happened in our lovely restaurant’s semi-private rooms.  However, the bride is a dear friend and colleague whose company Kate’s Blossoms  has made dozens of Cavallo Point weddings beautiful.  As such, I could not be more honored that she chose the Lodge to marry her soulmate, and host an intimate family gathering in February.  Her team put together the gorgeous flowers (but, of course!), and ours did our best to show her how much she means to us with a lovely meal.  Another favorite of mine, Sabine Scherer, captured all of the pretty.  I could not be happier to send my fondest thoughts to Kate and Raymond- I just know that they will find so much happiness in this next phase of their lives together.

Mike and Tracy

by Jessica on March 6th, 2013 in Real Weddings | No Comments

Mike and Tracy met in the nursing field, and as such, they work CRAZY hours.  This is my only regret as it pertains to their wedding, as i would have loved to spend more time with them during the planning process.  Even with the limited time that they had, they put together a beautiful wedding with the help of Lisa McNichol of And Something Blue.  I love the soft array of pastels represented in the bridesmaids dresses, the beautiful wild driftwood and succulent floral display on the escort card table, and little white lanterns each guest took to walk down from the ceremony to the reception together, let by a vibrant trumpet and the bride and groom.  Looking back on the gorgeous photos by Greg Slick Photography, I am reminded of how Tracy absolutely glowed when she saw Mike, and it brings a smile to my face to be part of a day filled with so much love!

Lisa and Jeff

by Jessica on February 13th, 2013 in Real Weddings | No Comments

Lisa and Jeff are Canadian, so when they decided to elope in late Fall, they promised their family a warm destination.  Cut to Thanksgiving weekend in San Francisco, which was not exactly what they had initially thought their wedding would look like, but turned out beautiful just the same.  It was such a pleasure to put together details of this intimate family celebration, and to see how much love this couple and their families shared.  Many thanks to their amazing florist Annabelle from Mill Valley Flowers, and the always fabulous Sabine Scherer from behind the camera.

Larry and Colette

by Jessica on February 6th, 2013 in Real Weddings | No Comments

Larry and Colette have spent over a decade together, and I could not be more pleased that when they decided to take the leap, they chose Cavallo Point for the momentous occasion.  It would be impossible to spend time with this couple, and not fall head over heels for them.  They are sweet and funny, and their wedding was a sweet reflection of them with Colette’s mother acting as the ceremony officiant and her incredibly talented sister singing them a beautiful song.  Larry’s lovely adult daughters stood with him as his “best women”.  The color palette for this winter wedding was vibrant oranges and shades of rich purple with the amazing Baylor of Lila B creating a rustic elegance with her arrangements.  Sabine Scherer captured all of the beautiful details including my favorite- the moment when Colette strapped on a friends combat boots to brave a walk to the water for photos. What a gal!
