Let’s Talk Table Numbers

Table Numbers help guests identify which table they will be sitting at. There are many beautiful table number cards on the market, some letterpress some silk. For example:

Let’s face it though. Some brides are looking for something different as the classic table numbers simply don’t fit the style of their wedding.

For those looking for a more urban feel why not look around the city you live or love. I sent my lovely husband out to explore San Francisco in order to locate interesting numbers that could take the place of the more traditional ones….Here is the result:

Stay tuned for more table number and name ideas!

I love this centerpiece created by Amy Burke Designs:

Congratulations J & J - Fairmont Hotel San Francisco Wedding Planner

The wedding we coordinated on 09.22.07 was held at the swanky Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. The ceremony was held on the rooftop garden which has fabulous views of the city. The rain stayed away for a beautiful and touching ceremony uniting J & J. The reception was breathtaking. Our bride and groom made such amazing decor choices and their hard work showed off in the final product. I wish you both all the happiness in the world and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day.

Photobooth Fun!!

Having a Photobooth at a wedding is all the rage. It is a really fun and interesting way to capture your guests in their most rarest form.

To make things even more interesting how about assembling a Photobooth Fun Basket filled with props and disguises. And no time is better than now as it is almost All Hallows’ Eve.

Other Accessories

Your guests will love to play dress up and the pictures will be priceless.

Congratulations R & R - Buena Vista Winery Wedding Planner

On 09.15.07 I coordinated my first, and hopefully not my last, Buena Vista Winery Wedding. The couple had gorgeous taste and the bride really thought about every last detail. The florals were lush and wood accents really made the colors of the flowers pop. The winery itself created a beautiful backdrop for a truly perfect evening.

Here are some shots:
