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 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!

A late summer wedding in Montauk, NY is just about as close to bliss as one can get. The warm days, cooler nights, salty air and bright colors make up a pretty perfect setting, and the real wedding of Anne and Chris shows us just how perfect it really was. The wedding, featured on Cappy Hotchkiss Photography, is dubbed “J.Crew I do” because the party is head-to-toe in the popular brand. It fits just right for these nautical nuptials, so we give props to the young couple for their killer style.
Have you ever seen a better looking bridal party? White weddings are classic but those colorful shoes definitely make a statement. Anne and Chris chose our Big Day wedding invitation customized with a heart and their initials at the top. Our favorite part has to be the dress suggestion at the bottom: Dress Sharp.
Each table included some handmade details, along with bright and beautiful bouquets by Flowers by Beth.
Our Big Day menus and table signs complimented the decor nicely.
Sparklers are always a nice touch when bidding adieu to the newlyweds. Congratulations to Anne and Chris! For more photos, visit Cappy Hotchkiss Photography.
We’re still swooning over all the beautiful details of Izzy and Harry’s UK wedding last December. Their save the date cards and invitations were only a fraction of the fun paper products displayed throughout their big day, so when Izzy sent us these beautiful photos by Sven Arnstein we had to share.
Custom wedding signage was created for almost every table along with matchbox favors, wild-flower seed packets, a wishing tree and a delightful ‘thumb-print tree’, and they all matched perfectly with the Hot Air Balloon save the date.
The couple really went above and beyond to create a whimsical space. We always love a winter wedding…

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a classic New York City wedding come our way. Tina and Gregory touched on all our favorite Big Apple details, from an incredible rooftop view to a traditional black and white color palette. It’s beautiful in its simplicity and we’re delighted to have played a part.
Our New York City Skyline invitation was the perfect choice for the couple. The charcoal gray and white set the tone for the event.
We can’t get over the intricacy of this cake/cupcake tower combo by Billy’s Bakery. You can’t go wrong with edible pearls!
Another wedding for the books. Congratulations to Tina and Gregory!

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.

If you’re wedding is inspired by old Hollywood glamor, it’s a sure sign it should take place in Palm Springs. Maria and Craig’s wedding at the Parker Palm Springs showcases the couple’s luxurious taste and fashionable lifestyle. Maria, CEO of SimplyShe wanted her guests to feel comfortable throughout the weekend celebration while still embracing the stylish accents of a grand event. The bold color palette of black, white, pool blue and fuchsia caught our eye when she came to our studio with plans of a custom wedding suite. We’re loving the striped table linens and decor.
The Los Angeles Skyline save the dates were letterpress printed in fuchsia ink, and paired with a custom black and white striped liner and pool envelope.
For a more custom invitation, we transformed our horizontal Chandelier wedding invitation into a vertical, double-sided modern glamor piece. The invitations were also paired with a black and white striped liner and customized guest labels.
It doesn’t really get much more glamorous than this. The reception room filled with fluorescent pink lighting is just dying for a dance party.
What a beautiful weekend for a beautiful couple. Congratulations Maria and Craig! For more photos head over to Style Me Pretty here!

Hi! My name is Vanessa Mason, you may remember me as the Style Editor at You & Your Wedding and Cosmopolitan Bride magazines here in the UK. I left the world of weddings to have our two amazing babies, Scott and Sienna (now two and a half and eight months) and when Sabrina at Hello!Lucky asked me to be a guest blogger for their gorgeous company, I didn’t have to think twice, I jumped at the opportunity. What an honor! Well, enough about my details, let’s talk weddings! Just before Christmas, Harry Judd and his sweetheart Izzy Johnston tied the knot. As a nod to Harry’s Strictly Come Dancing win in December 2011, they tucked into a cake topped with a glitter ball trophy.
If you like the glitter ball touch, why not take the idea further and use them in vases as table centerpieces? To keep costs low, only place them on the head table in front of the bride and groom and special guests like the best man or your respective parents. The idea works nicely, as the vases are so tall, they don’t interrupt the flow of conversation over the table. They also provide great atmosphere thanks to the lights placed inside them and as the evening falls, the fairy lights reflect pretty twinkling light off the glasses, cutlery and tea lights! Whatever you decide to do for your wedding, just have fun and make it look beautiful!

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.
Thanks to the Top of the Mark for such a fun project and to Rien van Rijthoven for the beautiful images!
Do you remember this exquisite English countryside wedding of Lisa and Rory? It was recently featured (with a huge spread!) in Harper’s Bazaar Arabia Bride with pages full of gorgeous photos, insider information, and all the classic details that made the event so memorable. We had loads of fun working with the charming couple, and are over the moon about the great publicity their wedding has received. Congrats Lisa and Rory!
