Hitting the stands this week is the Fall 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. I am thrilled and beyond thankful that they have chosen to feature Cavallo Point as an ideal spot for a destination wedding. We sure think so! Check out the article on Martha Stewart for great ideas on other local vendors to use for a Sausalito wedding.
And while you are surfing the interwebs, please do take a gander at our own brand spanking new and GORGEOUS wedding website- I am so pleased at how it all came together!
When people think of the number 13, there is a general idea of the “unlucky” nature of this number. Elevators in many hotels skip straight from 12 to 14. People await bad luck on Fridays that fall on the 13th day of the month. Personally, however, I think 13 is a lucky day, and on this 13th day of August I am excited to share with you some facts to prove my point.
Many 13 wearing sports figures have garnered great success while donning the number from Alex Rodrigues with the New York Yankees to famed football player Dan Marino. In Italy, 13 is actually considered a lucky number and is even represented in jewelry as a good luck charm.
As we move closer to 2013, I want to celebrate “13″ as a lucky number to be wed, and am excited to offer an additional 25% off the Friday/Sunday facility fee for the following fun dates: 3/3/13 and 12/13/13. That’s right- not only will you have an easy to remember anniversary, but a $4,500 facility fee for your wedding at Cavallo Point!
I am lucky enough to have witnessed the past 4 years at this incredible property, and I feel so proud to be here to celebrate by assisting in the coordination of a 4th birthday party for the Lodge. We planned to host this event on the back patio of the 601 building – a spot that I think is ideal for hosting a welcome event for wedding or event guests at time of check in. The space offers access to our art gallery, the 601 firepit, and a lovely outdoor seating area. Unfortunately, it was a bit chilly so we moved it into our beautiful Mariposa Room, for more of an indoor fete.
Hartmann Studios provided the linens- an ode to our green mission in Venice Citrine and Tuscan Citrine. Hunt Littlefield, one of my favorite florists in the industry, provided the gorgeous flowers with pops of international orange to represent the beautiful bridge that serves as the backdrop to the property. Peach Agua Fresca and Mint Lemonade continued the color scheme and made for delightful refreshments to enjoy on the patio. Spanish guitar from trio, Fazz, set the tone for a lovely get together.
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the past four years. I am thrilled to be included in this team, and look forward to representing this beautiful property for years to come!
One of the perks of my job is getting to meet some of the wonderful and creative wedding vendors in the Bay Area, and explore the products that they have to offer. I recently was able to visit Wine Country Party and Events warehouse with Andrea Borchers, their fabulous Director of Business Development, and was so excited by the incredible rentals they have to offer. A couple of pieces I think are worth mentioning are their gorgeous collection of antique one-off items such as antique soda bottles, miss-matched floral bone china, and an array of reclaimed wood trays and baskets.
Looking for something more modern? I fell in love with their Mendocino collection of wood and steel tables. My favorite piece of the collection was the unique table offering a steel trough down the center for floral arrangements, or for something more funky, to fill with ice and have a built-in oyster bar or wine chiller! I think that these pieces would work beautifully in our Callippe Ballroom, as the mix of modern and rustic would blend in perfectly with the modern carpet and rustic beams showcased in our ballroom.
Wine Country Party and Events offers beautiful options that blend into the overall style of The Lodge and with their wide variety of options from cabanas to furniture to linens, they make for a wonderful company to work with for all of your event needs!
I am excited to announce that Cavallo Point is now a member of Style Me Pretty’s exclusive group of Little Black Book vendors! Check us out at http://cavallopointlodge.stylemepretty.com/vendor-profile/
Recently, I had the pleasure of hosting some of my favorite local wedding planners out to the Lodge to enjoy special cocktails and our beautiful views. On the menu was an overflowing cheese tray with offerings from some of my favorites such as Cowgirl Creamery and Andante, the incredible wines of Long Meadow Ranch in Rutherford (both bio-dynamically farmed and organic!), and trays of specialty sweets from our own Ethan Howard. I was absolutely floored by the gorgeous flowers from Kate’s Blossoms, and the wonderful furniture arrangements on the terrace by
Wine Country Party and Events. One of the highlights of the night was our signature cocktail which I think would be perfect for any Spring Wedding. David Garrett, our bar manager shares the recipe here for the “Grapefruit”- with its soft peachy hue and delicately sweet bubbles, I know your guests for any event would love it!
