WORKING TOGETHER: AN ELEGANT PROCESS

Our process is highly personalized and designed to cultivate events that are intricate, thoughtful and truly reflective of you. It’s our goal to dedicate all of our attention in creating environments that are so much more than just pretty spaces. Our events are designed with the sole intent of carefully personalizing and customizing each one by artfully sharing our client’s stories, goals and voices.  
 

As an essential piece of our philosophy, our design process touches every aspect of an event by creating a common thread between all elements—from the first sight of an invitation to the final parting wish at the end of a perfect evening. Because of this, our process of working with vendors and clients is designed to be high-touch and personal—we are with you every step of the way.      

 We’ve carefully cultivated vendor relationships with the best San Francisco creatives. We offer a beautiful team for your event that functions flawlessly and effortlessly, and put you in front of work that we’re proud to stand behind and thrilled to showcase.

 

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS: A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE STORIES

Our Groom was born and raised in San Francisco. Their paper welcome cards were cut to 7 X 7—the square mileage of the city he is proud to call home.

Our bride’s family comes from a long history of pistachio and almond farmers. To highlight their family’s legacy, we served pistachio-crusted lamb and included a custom mixture of desserts showcasing pistachios and almonds. We also included snackable nuts that were served on the wedding shuttle.

Pamela, our bride, loved the classic movie Sabrina, so we made the Legion of Honor tent feel like an outdoor garden. The background of the stage trellis was designed as an exact copy of the one in the movie. We added a subtle arch that was a perfect compliment to the camel-humped couches in the museum’s Rodin gallery.

After the cake had been cut, and a surprise flash-mob electrified the dance floor, we served Francesca and Christopher’s guests with custom-printed mini “Mr. or Mrs. Carozza” Coca-Cola bottles. Each guest could make their own ice cream float, which was an homage to the Bride’s late grandfather — who every Saturday night would always serve his grandkids an individual Coca-Cola float.

Our Bride lovingly called her fiancé Ben, “Bee.” As a nod to this sweet gesture, we added little bees throughout our design—the custom bar signs included hexagons, the bars were a mirrored prism, and every macaron was filled with sweet honey.

Olivia is from San Francisco, but moved to New York City, the hometown of her now-husband who is a popular sneaker and street culture photographer. Their shared love for super-hip sneakers led us to create a color palette based on Olivia’s favorite Nikes! We even had a larger than life custom cake in the shape of a sneaker—just for kicks.

IT'S DETAILS LIKE THIS THAT GIVE US A PASSION FOR WHAT WE DO.
