Brandon and Caitlyn's Cavallo Point Wedding

I love when couples have a wedding filled with details that are very personal to them. Brandon and Caitlyn loved the seamless blend of historic San Francisco architecture, stunning outdoor vistas, and natural beauty Cavallo Point offered. It was the perfect backdrop for how they envisioned their wedding. They met in San Francisco while studying at the Conservatory of Music, so it's no surprise that Brandon wrote the music for the ceremony or that they had The Fil Lorenz Orchestra play for the reception. The florals by Chestnut and Vine accented the look of Cavallo Point with the rich reds and berries. We did portraits with Brandon's father's red Porsche by the Golden Gate Bridge. Caitlyn said, "Our wedding day perfectly reflected our tastes as individuals and as a couple. The day was filled with friends and family, and most importantly with love, and we wouldn’t have done a single thing different!"

Thanks to Style Me Pretty for featuring Brandon and Caitlyn's Cavallo Point wedding too.

Randy and Marianne's Sonoma Wedding

Marianne and Randy were married at her parent’s home in Sonoma on a beautiful summer day. They wanted the wedding to have an approachable elegance, so they brought in Shannon Leahy Events to help bring their vision to life. They utilized the existing pathways through the oak trees as a way for the guests to get to the ceremony site next to the coi pond. Bright, juicy florals by Flowerwild adorned the ceremony aisle and floral arch. The adjacent orchard and garden were perfect for the cocktail hour. Finally dinner was served in the tent build-out followed by dessert and dancing. Shannon Leahy and her team wanted to keep everything natural flowing seamlessly from the landscape through the various design elements and and the tent build out. They used lots of wood tones, sisal carpets, raw linen and copper accents to mimic textures already found on the property. This neutral backdrop allowed the bright fuchsia, purple and pink florals to be a fun pop of color and to define the color palate. The groom has always been interested in graphic deign and he designed the invitation and worked with Yonder design to print and produce the other paper goods for the day. They had bottles of wine grown on the property for the for the guests to take home as a favors at the end of the night.

Another special touch that they were able to incorporate into their day was the African tradition, tasting of the flavors flavors during the ceremony. The four flavors are vinegar, cayenne pepper, lemon, and honey, and they are used to signify the bitter, the spice, the sour and the sweetness a couple should experience during their lifetime of marriage.

We were honored to have their wedding featured in Geraldine Magazine Issue 02 and on Style Me Pretty.
