This wedding has been on our minds and in our hearts for months now, so we're thrilled to finally bring you the details of the event! Kathryn and Joe's glamorous San Francisco wedding has to be one of the most classic weddings we've seen yet. (Check it out on Martha Stewart Weddings!) Set in the heart of the city at the art deco designed venue Bimbo's 365 Club, this wedding was definitely not short on style. Kathryn is the founder and creative director of Dream a Little Dream Events, so without question, her wedding would be a show stopper. We love the classy details she and Joe chose - from all white flowers to fur shawls donned by her and the bridal party. And check out that sparkling backdrop for the ceremony!
Eunice worked her magic on the wedding stationery, which included the invitation suite, table numbers, programs, menus, matchbook favors - the list goes on! Kathryn and Joe had always enjoyed live music at Bimbo's so a New Year's Eve blowout was a no-brainer for them and creating a design to flatter such a classic San Francisco landmark was a dream come true for us. The art deco themed invitation suite took cues from vintage concert posters and album covers with a clean black, white and silver color palette. We called on a neighbor silk screen shop to help out with the impressive tri-fold invitation and the ever-amazing Michele Papineau added the final flourish with calligraphy addresses.
Since Kathryn and Joe are avid music lovers, it was only fitting to create table signs with names of their favorite albums. This was no ordinary wedding of course, so we created unique artwork for every album.. that's forty-one tables! The couple had such fun coming up with names that they ended up keeping the cards and framing them as artwork in their home!
One photo doesn't do it justice so below are a few of our working files. Eunice really knocked it out of the park with this one, now we all want copies!
In keeping with the music theme, the escort cards were custom designed to resemble concert tickets with each guests name printed along with their table assignment and corresponding illustrations.
A classic takeaway from a music venue, each guest left with custom matchboxes as favors.
Congratulations Kathryn and Joe and cheers to a new year and a new life together! View more photos here.
