D + R didn’t have an exact theme in mind while planning their wedding, just a simple mission: to show their guests everything they love most about San Francisco—both its natural beauty and city life too. They found a charming spot for the ceremony (more on that later), then searched for a beautiful ballroom that didn’t feel too expansive for 70. Sir Francis Drake did the trick.

Darah says, The ballroom is absolutely stunning with floor to ceiling windows along one wall and an ornate gilded ceiling. It had that old school San Francisco feel we were looking for. Rob and I were blown away when we walked into our reception and saw the room transformed with lighting and flowers and linens (and of course, filled with all of our closest friends and family).

Thanks to photog Silvana Di Franco for showing off all those details in the photos below:

Darah’s gown has an organza skirt by Watters and a taffeta sweetheart top that she designed with Carol of Novella Bridal. So inventive!

From the bride…

Our ceremony was right across the golden gate bridge in a quaint historic landmark church atop a hill in the middle of a wildflower preserve overlooking the water. The views from the church are stunning and the location made us feel far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. The church has this magical, peaceful quality about it and lent itself to a very intimate, emotional ceremony.

Aside from how beautiful the church is and the stunning views, what made it especially perfect is that it felt like neutral territory from a religious standpoint because it is a desecrated church that is now a historic landmark, not used for religious services anymore. Rob is Catholic and I am Jewish and it felt comfortable for both of our families and us.

Love these cookie escort cards. Not to mention the cake topper below… Quirky penguin motifs were scattered throughout, a little nod to Rob’s proposal in a penguin suit. (We’re guessing that one’s an epic story, too.)

The holiday season is already so magical for a number of reasons, but getting engaged this time of year sure takes things up a notch. Talk about holiday cheer, right? When Rebekah of A & B Creative heard that friend and fellow creative Addison Searles of Twigss Floral Studio had gotten engaged, she, along with photog Jessica Burke + the rest of their talented crew, jumped at the chance to celebrate her.

This invitation suite is a chic way to ring in a holiday engagement, for sure. A & B Creative also chose Wedding Paper Divas when she threw a modern pink bridal shower for another friend a few months back.

Rebekah says, I am very fortunate to be a part of a small group of like-minded wedding creatives based in the Bay Area and recently one of our own got engaged in France. Addison has such great style and I wanted to reflect that in the classic invites and paper products, minimal design, and an autumnal palette. With (nearly) all the ladies of our group gathered in my Berkeley studio we showered Addison and ate delicious food and, obviously, talked about their future wedding!

In case you’re wondering about these jaw-dropping botanicals throughout… that would be the work of the aforementioned Twigss Floral Studio. Addison + her mom Melissa create all the beauties Twigss offers up.

That gorgeous gold-flecked gift wrap we used? It’s actually a Minted table runner! It looks pretty spectacular both ways, we think.
