Cavallo Point Love Tour

by Jessica on March 8th, 2013 in News & Events | No Comments

I am a little late in this post, as the Love Tour was a few weeks ago, but I am delighted to share Janae Shield’s beautiful photos of the day, and thank everyone who participated, donated and attended.  It was such a wonderful event, and a delightful planning experience for me, to work with the amazing group of vendors and the wonderful women of LVL Events.  I hope that our attending brides had a lovely time, won great prizes, and got some wedding planning done!

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

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!
