We absolutely love it when we get to work with clients who think outside the box and aren’t afraid to veer away from tradition and get creative with their weddings. This was absolutely the case with Jeska and Brad, who had one of the most unique celebrations we’ve seen in a long time.
Jeska and Brad chose our Big Day suite in letterpress. We loved the pop of purple in their invites, which was definitely a running theme throughout the wedding — from the brides hair, to the flowers, to the purple layer at the bottom of her gorgeous custom made dress.
A good reminder for everyone’s big day!
These robot cake toppers are pretty amazing, we’re especially loving the paper flags with their initials.
Jeska and Brad printed out our free Big Day table numbers and mounted them on purple paper of course. How pretty are those flowers?
Genius seating chart which let’s people know where they are sitting and also explains who everyone is.
Congratulations Jeska & Brad! Thanks for being such a fun couple to work with!
We were recently lucky enough to make a special trip to the San Francisco Flower Mart to drop off some wedding invitations to a wedding planner we work with. We love going to the Flower Mart and could spend all day in there!
The Flower Mart is where wedding vendors and other professionals can get locally grown flowers direct from growers at wholesale prices. It’s always such a treat walking through the Mart and we thought it would be fun to show you some behind the scenes photos, including prep for the wedding we did the invites for. Enjoy!
We will never tire of looking at San Francisco weddings. As much as we love a big beautiful celebration we have a soft spot for a simple, low key union. You can’t bet the drama of San Francisco’s City Hall, with its high sweeping ceilings and gorgeous architecture.
Lilia Photography took these beautiful photos of Misty and Matt’s sweet San Francisco wedding at City Hall. We’re digging Misty’s vintage wedding dress and love that all the gentleman wore vintage style suits with brooches instead of boutinnieres, pocket squares and vintage tie-pins. Misty’s bouquet was made from flower brooches and put together by her father, which is so special.
When ever we see photos of weddings we naturally think of which of our wedding designs would match the celebration. We can’t help it! For Misty and Matt’s charming vintage ceremony we would chose our vintage inspired Sweetheart wedding suite in letterpress to match the drama and beauty of their big day.
Congratulations Misty and Matt! And thanks for letting us share your beautiful photos here Lilia!
This real wedding featured on Wedding Chicks is just gorgeous. We adore the vintage vibe that this bride and her team pulled off and nature never fails to be the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony. We’re big fans of Rifle Paper Co. so we loved seeing the save the date postcard we designed for Brianne and Brandon paired with their lovely wedding invitations.
The couple carried the invitation design to the drink table with this table cloth from Rifle. They did a great job of setting up an easy do-it-yourself drink table as well.
How stunning is this ombre cake made by Crisp Bake Shop in Sonoma?
Dawn Ranch is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding, and with just a few simple touches the space can really be transformed. We love the look of these streamers in the apple trees.
The flowers were done by Spiral Hand, just adding small vintage jars to the table with some colorful pops of flowers is all you really need for an outdoor wedding where nature takes center stage.
To see more of this wedding head over to Wedding Chicks. Congratulations Brianne and Brandon! Here’s to many years of happiness!
We have so loved being a part of Good Company, a wedding studio based here in San Francisco. Our co-partners in the studio include photographer Lisa Lefkowitz, the dynamic wedding planners at Downey Street Events, florist Sharla Flock Designs, and hair/makeup artist Meaganne McCandess. As you can imagine, it really is the perfect one-stop studio for all of your wedding needs.
We were so excited to also be a part of a feature on Style Me Pretty Living that went live today. There are some beautiful photos of the studio accompanied by fun q&a’s with each of the studio members, you can read it in full here.

This real wedding featured on Style Me Pretty shows a classic side of San Francisco that we simply adore. Dream a Little Dream Events‘ Britt McNany and her beau Blake met in San Francisco and wed in San Francisco. Their theme was timeless, with dramatic details and bold colors. Plus, both the ceremony and reception took place in iconic buildings that were the perfect destination for their big day. We recreated a custom design to suit her romantic soiree along with some equally gorgeous day-of products.
Tables were each named by the various neighborhoods in our city, to guide guests to their seats. We love how the gorgeous deep red bouquets by Nancy Liu Chin match the cards.
A ceremony in St. Ignatius Church was the only place for these two. It’s sweeping archways and rich architecture set the tone for the night ahead.
This room is completely breathtaking. The entire Asian Art Museum is filled with historic and contemporary beauty, but to host a reception here is a true dream.
Custom printed place cards were set to match the table decor, with individual meal choices, too.
Congratulations Britt and Blake! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and a wonderful 2013!

Weddings at the Bear Flag Farm can never disappoint. The beautiful couple Bailey and Erik said their vows among some of the most breathtaking scenery, and their wedding details were just as perfect. Our Lavender Harvest invitation suite was a nice introduction to the event, especially because of the lush lavender field nearby.
In addition to the crazy gorgeous location, Bear Flag Farm also coordinated the design and florals for the event. The succulents add a deep texture to these cheerful bouquets, making them a lovely addition to the decor.
It was important to the couple that fresh, delicious foods were incorporated into their big day. With cuisine by Alex’s Catering in Vallejo, everything was complete!
Congratulations Bailey and Erik! To view more images of their wedding, head over to Style Me Pretty.

This fall we had the pleasure of working with a team at the Top of the Mark at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel for a special photo shoot. As such an iconic hotel with deep San Francisco history, we were thrilled to create a custom skyline invitation for the event. Our San Francisco Skyline is packed with significant imagery, but one thing was missing for this Nob Hill destination. We created a new icon for the mix and included the Top of the Mark peaking above our lovely city by the bay.
If you haven’t been to the Top of the Mark, it’s a must for visitors and city dwellers. Their views are some of the best in the city, and the bar makes a delicious cocktail.
Can you see the difference? We love having the Mark Hopkins in our Skyline!
These photos by Rien van Rijthoven of Architecture Photography capture the magic of the Mark Hopkins so well. With elegant tablescapes and jaw-dropping views, this venue makes any event a dream.
