Truly the most important part for us both- we wanted everyone to have a blast, dance all night, and remember our wedding as one hell of a party. Between the open bar and the DJ throwing it back to our high school/early college days, it was definitely a success!Read More
From the groom Curtis: We met on a college spring break trip in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Fast forward years later to the proposal on Christmas Day in front of the family. Cynthia opened a giant box filled with balloons that were tied to a ring. As the balloons lifted the ring I got on one knee and asked her to marry me (She said yes). We stumbled upon our venue during a work Christmas party the same year. We loved the feel and atmosphere of the winery. We were drawn in by the inclusive yet spacious indoor/outdoor setup. Beautiful wine barrels and kings tables that gave off a rustic yet elegant vibe. We chose soft neutral colors paired with lots of candles, Edison bulbs, market lights and candle chandeliers to help bring our “rustic elegance” theme to life. Our venue was dressed with beautiful soft neutral and blush toned flowers with a combination of greenery. We used a combination of gold,rose gold, blush and navy for our bridal party. Our ceremony took place in the romantic candle lit barrel room with a surprise mariachi band exit of the bride and groom. We are surrounded by the most fun and loving group of family and friends who all love to dance and party late into the night. Our dj and song list were meticulously picked to cater to nostalgic memories of the bride and groom and keep the dance floor full all night(mission accomplished). Among things served were signature bride and groom cocktail drinks as well as a beer wall serving the grooms favorite local craft brews. All together a night filled with dancing, great food and drinks, lots of memories, and stacks of drunken photo booth pictures. We wanted to give our friends and family a night to remember forever and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

From our GWS feature: Amy + Logan met in the men’s clothing department at Nordstrom while Amy was working there as a stylist… So, we weren’t surprised when they were dressed to the NINES. And, coolest part — Amy actually found her planner + designer, Elise of Brannan Events, from a previous Green Wedding Shoes feature (you can find it here: Pantone’s Greenery Inspired this Glamorous Styled Shoot). Since Amy wanted to emulate the design of that editorial, but with a twist, a ton of the original creative team got to be involved, including: The Poffs, and Tumbleweed Floral Truck! As Amy + Logan live in Berkeley, they knew they wanted to tie the knot in the iconic city of San Francisco. Their ceremony was held at the historical Saints Peter and Paul Church and their reception at The Pearl, had a modern industrial twist!
From the bride Amy: Our favorite memory was after our traditional first dances, we had a surprise Indian dance performance. It was a unique way to incorporate my culture and get everyone on the dance floor. The room immediately filled up with energy and everyone was having fun watching and dancing along.

From Lindee: Introducing, The Cosmos Collection! What's new? Besides the design aspect, the WHITE fabric (my rare fabrics have been ivory up to now). I call it heaven. It is ethereal, soft, sheer, and cruelty free (unlike traditional silk).
