The new blog is live!

It is with much joy that we can now send you to our new blog, www.dreamalittleblog.com.  We did enjoy this  blog for the past few years, but we really think that the new layout and ease of use can allow our readers navigate and check out our real weddings, and even search for something specific. 

We worked really hard on creating it, so we hope you'll check it out and continue to follow our work!

Happy Planning!

We're under construction!

We have been working for the past month on our new blog with our designers, and we are so excited about what we have come up with! The current blog is being updated a lot less, and we are sorry about that, as we are uploading real weddings and blog posts for our new site currently.  The goal we have now is to unveil it before February 1, which is less two weeks away! 

We promise you, this will be a great tool for all our current clients and fans out there that love to be able to see crisp clear photos from our real weddings, and have an easy to navigate blog to zip through for information.  Please stayed tuned, we can't wait to share it with you!!

Happy Planning!

Tammy + Mark | Twelve Oaks Estate | July 3

Tammy and Mark had one of the most beautiful and thoughtfully planned out weddings, all the way down to the shot favor glasses with a bottle of Patron on each dining table.  These guests had a blast, almost as much as I did planning it with them.  Tammy came to me with a vision that she wanted to re-create, and with the venue's beauty, flowers by Nancy Liu Chin, lighting by Got Light? and linens and furnishings from Hartmann Studios, we created her dream wedding.  Even when I was setting up that day in the mid-summer Palo Alto heat, I had to take a step back and simply take in what had been created by all of these talented vendors.

Tammy was a stunning vision that day, and Mark had a grin across his face for the duration of their celebration.  I will let the pictures below speak for themselves, as Kate Harrison captured their day beautifully.

If you would like to see more loveliness from this wedding, check out the slideshow on our website or you can see their feature in the new SF Brides Magazine!
The other talented vendors that were a part of this amazing day were:
Church: Stanford Memorial Church
Catering: Chef Larry Chu
Transportation: Lone Star Limousine
Dessert Bar: Sprinkles Cupcakes and Icing on the Cake
Djay: Denon & Doyle
Hair: Hair by Antonio
Makeup: Kia Andresen
Staffing: The Party Staff
Coffee Service: Coupa Cafe

Happy Planning!

Some exciting news to share...

...I'm engaged! Yesterday afternoon, my boyfriend proposed to me at home plate at AT&T Park (where we met), and then took me out for the most incredible night of my life! We had a walk around the park after so I could stop shaking, then some champagne at Public House (the restaurant outside the park, which used to be Restaurant 24, where our first glance at each other was), then to dinner at RN74.  To end the night, he took me to the top of the Sir Francis Drake hotel for dessert and more champagne overlooking the holiday lights in Union Square.

He told me later that he had asked for my father's blessing the night before when they went to dinner together.  He has a friend that works for the Giants, and she was able to allow him access to the field, and she even took the great pictures of us to have forever.  I basically cried for the entire night and I am still glowing. We are extremely excited!

Here is a quick photo of us right after the proposal (I think you can still see the tears in my eyes):
I will be definitely updating everyone on how planning my own wedding is going to be, but for now, we hope everyone has a very merry holiday season, and we will be back with more posts (and hopefully our new shiny blog!!) after the new year.

Jen + Chris | StoneTree Golf Club | August 14

What can I say about Chris and Jen other than they are a fabulous couple full of life and love for each other. From the time I met them I had the best time working with them and loved being around Jen's infectious laughter and Chris's easy going attitude.

The wedding was at StoneTree Golf Club in Novato and the day could not have been more perfect! The ceremony was held outside under a clear blue sky with the beautiful StoneTree greens in the background. Afterward, guests were welcomed inside where a delicious meal prepared by Elaine Bell Catering awaited them. Once the meal was finished Jen and Chris celebrated their union with their first dance and everyone was quick to follow in their footsteps...and the dancing did not stop! This group was full of some of the most energetic dancers I have ever witnessed. It was a true pleasure to be a part of this special occasion.

The pictures taken by the talented husband and wife team of What Shanni Saw will really speak for themselves, enjoy.

The vendors that were a part of Jen + Chris's special day were:

Florist: Julie Stevens Design
Djay: Perfect Day Music
Catering: Elaine Bell Catering
Cake: Laurie Lucov Wedding Cakes
Photography: What Shanni Saw
Makeup Artist: Sherrie Long
Venue: StoneTree Golf Club

Happy Planning!

Marinda + Jeff | Stafford Lake | August 20

We are so happy to be able to finally share all the weddings we worked so hard on this year, and this one was such a fun one!

Marinda and Jeff wanted to have a wedding that was unlike any other wedding they or their friends had ever been to.  I think they accomplished that extremely well with their Great Gatsby themed wedding on a warm Friday afternoon at Stafford Lake in Novato, California this past August.  The couple was so excited when they saw nearly all of their 200 guests dressed to the nines and playing the part that they had requested of their guests.  They even did a skit to open up the ceremony, it was all very well thought out!

While most of the wedding was DIY, they did hire some amazing vendors to help make their day just as perfect as they thought it would be.  Enjoy the photos from the very talented husband and wife team from Tim Halberg Photography in Southern California:

The vendors that helped make this special day happen for Marinda + Jeff were:

Venue: Stafford Lake, Novato
Catering: Feast Catering
Rentals: Classic Party Rentals - Burlingame
Florals & Lighting: friends and family
Transportation: United Coach Tours
Djay: Tommy Fullove

Happy Planning!
