Cavallo Point Wedding Cakes

by Jessica on August 1st, 2012 in Design Inspiration | No Comments

Today I want to showcase the beautiful wedding cakes, created by our amazing pastry team at Cavallo Point!  All of our wedding cakes are made in house just prior to the wedding, and never frozen so the flavor cannot be beat.  I highly recommend the devils food cake with chocolate mousse or the carrot cake with cream cheese filling.  YUM!

Garden Romance in Callippe Ballroom

by Jessica on July 23rd, 2012 in Design Inspiration | No Comments

This wedding, is just so incredibly PRETTY.  It sounds simple right?  A pretty wedding.  I am in the unique (and lucky) position of seeing dozens of pretty weddings every year.  But this one, with photos by Deborah Laver,  stands out for me.  The linens selected (for several long kings tables in lieu of our standard rounds) are a heavy cream linen which works so nicely in this simple room of grays and creams.  What the linens lack in color they make up for with their beautiful quilted texture and delicate sheen.  The flowers, by Main Street Floragardens,  are made up of an array of beautiful individual centerpieces from small to tiny to mid sized in all sorts of containers- mercurial glass, terracotta garden urns, delicate china bowls.  The lush centerpieces of purples and greens tie in with the carpet and curtains and the cream paper lanterns draw eyes up to the barn-like exposed wood beams and 32′ ceiling.  Kathryn Kenna is one of my favorite event planners to work with and this beautiful wedding truly showcases why.

Best Photo Spots- The Golden Gate Bridge

by Jessica on July 18th, 2012 in Design Inspiration | 2 Comments

I am always getting asked about the best photo opportunities for weddings at Cavallo Point.  I think today I will showcase the obvious one- the Golden Gate Bridge.  It is the obvious choice for a reason, as arguably the most iconic architectural structure in the Bay Area.  With our incredible views of the bridge, and easy access to it for photos, I strongly recommend taking the hop skip and jump down to the bridge to get that money shot.

Green and Orange in Callippe Ballroom

There is something so modern in the choice of color for this wedding, masterminded by Kathleen Deery Design with planning by Lisa McNichol from And Something Blue. The avocado linens contrasted against peachy napkins create a chic color blocking. Yet, the softness of the yellow tulips and peach garden roses in the centerpieces softens the contrast and brings some romance to the styling. I love the simplicity of the ballroom design against the more playful choices made in the adjacent foyer and terrace. Rust colored linens with delightfully matchy rose arrangements and the playful Twitter linen covered in birds and flowers for the escort cards gives a youthful dash to this wedding.

Anthropologie Inspired Wedding

If this wedding, captured by the wonderful Sarah Peet,  doesn’t scream Spring, I don’t know what does!  Pamela from Outlined Productions did such a lovely job of creating this Anthropologie inspired wedding design while still using all of the equipment included at Cavallo Point from tables and chairs to linens (a great money saver, if you want to spend more of your budget on food or entertainment!).  I especially love the gorgeous plush garland and soft romantically colored ribbons which were used throughout the day’s events. They also made great use of the sound walls in Callippe to create a family wedding photo wall and unique backdrop for the sweetheart table.
