After the heat we’ve been experiencing in SoCal it feels good to share Kendel + Brian’s Bay Area wedding. Lucky for them there was no rain, the fog kept its distance, and the view from the Cavallo Point lodge, was gorgeous. Golden Gate Bridge, historic park, the San Francisco skyline… top notch. For a gal that loved seeing country inspired weddings on blogs, this was the spot to have her wedding. That being said Kendel wanted something a little different, with more refined, elegant finishes. Anthropologie napkins were mixed in with rentals, silver-rimmed plates sat pretty at each setting, table names were lazer cut from wood in the shape of trees to match their invitations, and lots of pretty pink & blush peonies were involved!

A few tips from Kendel:

Hire a planner, especially for the week of and day of. Alison Events Planning and Design was so amazing at helping Brian and my vision come to reality. They were always on top of the details so we could enjoy the process from start to finish. Also be sure to give your photopgraher a list of the shots that you want. Think about the details that you love and spent a lot time planning and make sure that they get those in!
