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!

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!

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!
Caitlin and Timothy’s sunny Palo Alto wedding has us dreaming of summer time all over again. With lots of golden yellow details and an elegant outdoor reception, it’s warm and inviting and oh so romantic. Caitlin and Timm started out by sending guests these Heartland save the date cards. And who says you have to keep with the same card? They switched things up with a custom icon in our Big Day invitation suite.
We customized the invitation with a mason jar holding two yellow California poppies. The theme carries out throughout their wedding day, even into their homemade favors!
The gorgeous florals were done by Amy Burke Designs, and we love the darker orange pops of color.
It was love at first sight with this ceremony venue. The Stanford Memorial Church just glowed among the guests.
And how darling are these homemade favors? The California poppies made another appearance on the labels of each jar. We’re dying for a taste!
Congratulations Caitlin and Timm! For more lovely photos, head over to Lori Paladino Photography!

Sarah and Mike came prepared when planning their wedding. It’s clear the lovely venue in Petaluma struck a chord for their decor, and especially their stationery. Designed with natural color palette and hints of purples and blues, their big day tied together seamlessly. Plus, they were a dream to work with.
The couple chose our Tuscany save the date card to set the tone for the outdoor event, and Sparrows for their wedding invitations. On the back of the particulars card we printed a gorgeous image of the venue, the Chileno Valley Ranch, painted by the bride’s aunt.
For their day-of stationery, our Sparrows menu card accompanied each table setting. We love how they incorporated live flowers and plants into almost every detail.
Congratulations Sarah and Mike!

As a boutique and very hands-on wedding vendor, we’re always happy to reach out to our brides and grooms around the globe. But when an event takes place right here in the heart of San Francisco, we feel proud to be a part. Darcy and Kevin’s glamorous San Francisco wedding covered a lot of ground, from the beautiful Presidio Chapel to the funky Bimbo’s 365 Club. The lively couple had a lot of fun with their decor, and they seem to have had a blast on their big day. It was all captured by the talented Andrew Weeks Photography with lovely details by Dream a Little Dream Events.
Of course with a reception venue like Bimbo’s, vintage glamour is a must. We created custom stationery of the San Francisco skyline for their paper programs and table numbers.
Michele Papineau‘s beautiful calligraphy led guests to their tables in style.
The sensational ombre pink wedding cake by Sage Catering was a focal point of the event. We love how it basically glows among the dark and romantic decor.
Congratulations Kevin and Darcy!

Melissa and Tim said their I do’s earlier this year in a venue that’s filled with history, literally! The James J. Hill Library in Saint Paul, Minnesota is beaming with dramatic light and enormous space. With photography by Tiffany Bolk, the romantic setting was captured at its best. The couple chose our Nouveau Peonies wedding invitation suite in a neutral, champagne color palette. It’s not often we see this design printed in other color ways but we’re absolutely smitten with the pale palette.
We also customized their square Nouveau Peonies wedding programs that matched the colors of their invitations. It’s always nice to see paper products match from the save the dates to the big day.
With menu cards and table numbers, Melissa and Tim’s reception decor was complete!
Congratulations Melissa and Tim!
