SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA WEDDING VENDORS


Invitations and Calligraphy

 

Yonder Design

HTTP://WWW.YONDEREVENTS.COM/

If it can be imagined, Julie and Chris can do it. Fully custom letterpress, foil, lazer etching, printing on fabric, large scale painted signage... They are a one stop shop for invitations through the menus, place cards, signage, programs. They are coming up with some of the coolest and most creative stuff I've seen. 

 

Janis Anzalone

http://janisanzalone.com/

Bay Area calligrapher Janis Anzalone does cool stuff. Her  style is a little wild, but has a sophisticated and  effortless feel to it. I will keep your invitation - envelope and everything - forever if you use Janis. 

 

Tara Jones Calligraphy

http://tarajones.com/

Artful modern calligraphy by Tara Jones. I can spot her work in a line up of thousands of calligraphers. Her flourishes and distinct styles are memorable and the perfect compliment to rustic elegant outdoor weddings or city black tie events. 

 

Stephanie Fishwick

http://www.stephaniefishwick.com/

Fine art calligraphy and hand lettering. Stephanie's work is magical. So magical, Muggles can't understand the wizardry that is happening right in front of their own eyes. Her calligraphy has  a bit of grit and emotion in each stroke of the pen - a soulfulness like jazz music on a rainy night. 

 

Aerialist Press

 HTTP://THEAERIALISTPRESS.COM/

Letterpress paper goods and graphic design for your wedding. Deep impressions on that buttery cotton paper that will pretty much force people to RSVP yes. I mean, how could you turn down a wedding when the invite has pillows so soft you could sleep on them. *printers joke* Seriously though, this stuff melts me.


Catering & Cake

 

Paula LeDuc Fine Catering

http://www.paulaleduc.com/

Their slogan says it all: "Perfect will be just fine." The best food your guests will ever experience at a wedding. 

 

Global Gourmet Catering

The good eats. No really, it's that simple. These guys know how to do it right.

 

Perfect Endings

http://perfectendings.com/

I don't always get to taste the cake at weddings, but it's safe to say that I  have had more wedding cake than most people will ever have in their whole life. Perfect Endings is the best. Period. This one time, we were at a wedding in Sonoma, eating dinner with all of the vendors and they brought us all some of the left over cake. Jackpot. I was in heaven for about 10 minutes and we were all raving about it until it was gone and we all had to go back to work.

Joel Serrato Films

Fine art wedding films shot on super 8mm film. The look and texture of the film has so much feeling that filters and modern technology can't create. Joel is a master at telling stories with this medium.
