Hope your Thanksgiving was full of abundance, joy and laughter with your loved ones! And of course food! We’ve got some pin-worthy features for you to peruse, while you rest off that food coma. In addition to Wednesday’s featured KLE wedding, Jayne and Chris’ Black Tie wedding is published on The Knot today! Below is the inspiration behind this sensational celebration with some of my favorite images by Robin Jolin Photography. Be sure to head over to The Knot for the full feature. Big thank you to all the vendors who came together to make this one happen – there were 25! Check out the full list at the bottom of this post.
Jayne and Chris began dating while each attended Stanford University, where they played Basketball and Football respectively. The story of how they met is pretty incredible, if you are ever lucky enough to hear it. Jayne went on to play basketball professional and was finishing out her WNBA season with the San Antonio Stars while we planned their wedding. It was only natural the two would select the Stanford Memorial Church at their alma mater for their ceremony with the reception at Kohl Mansion.
When we met they focused mostly on the guest experiences. To quote, they wanted to “blow them away with an atmosphere they won’t forget!” When it came to design, they did offer some specific direction. Both agreed on a classic and formal affair. Jayne wanted touches of glam, while Chris often referred to “James Bond” when trying to describe his vision. To appeal to them both, we went with a black and white color palette with touches of blush and greenery to soften the contrasting colors and add some romance.
The menu was a unique twist that made this formal affair far from stuffy. They wanted Mexican food! Thomas John Events created a refined menu with street corn on the cob, chicken mole and homemade guacamole! The surprises continued with a churro cart and cigar bar after cake cutting. Just before the last dance, guests were teated with In-n-Out cheeseburgers.
A girl walks into a bar… That is exactly how this story begins. After a professional dancing career in NYC, Erin moved to SF where her sister was living. Soon after she walked into the bar where Tony was bartending. Just one date later and the two were inseparable. Erin and Tony both come from tight-knit families, so it is no surprise that their biggest priority was that their wedding feel intimate and welcoming. A ceremony at the Swedenborgian Church and reception at the eclectic Firehouse 8 created the perfect settings to create this intimate affair and highlighted San Francisco, the place they both consider home. Flowers were another important element in setting the tone for their wedding. Our goal was to create a secret garden feel amidst the urban setting. La Fleuriste grouped potted herbs, daffodils, crimson and peach blooms and lush greens flowing from cement urns to create an organic, garden ambience. Copper accents, detailed chargers and long sequin gowns set the tone for a formal event, while farm tables and bistro chairs created a relaxed setting to make sure the ambience was still warm and inviting. The result was exactly what Erin and Tony had hoped – a wedding that felt authentic to both of them, warm and inviting with lots of dancing! And for the perfect ending to their wedding celebration, the couple hosted an after party at Aventine, the very bar where they first met.
