Sophisticated San Francisco: Caitlin + Mark

Caitlin is an amazing interior decorator based in San Francisco. When it came to planning her wedding, she was a natural for selecting the flowers, colors, and overall look of her event. She chose City Hall as the backdrop for her Fall nuptials and it made for a spectacular setting. Caitlin wanted her reception to feel as if you were attending a dinner party in a sophisticate's home - a comfortable, yet elegant affair. And it was. The evening felt intimate even within the grand walls of City Hall.

We set long tables with lush centerpieces, linen hemstitch napkins complete with the bride and groom's monogram, and lots of candles. Guests dined on an exquisite meal from Paula LeDuc Fine Catering and nibbled on coconut wedding cake from Perfect Endings. Caitlin and Mark loved the coconut flavor so much, they chose it was the only flavor for their wedding cake. It's that good. Guests packed the dance floor as the Chuck Wansley Band played all of the bride and groom's favorite songs.

My favorite detail? The escort card table was amazing! The layout was so unique and complemented the beautiful calligraphy from Maybelle Imasa-Stukls. It was such a visual treat and a great focal point for the guests as they entered City Hall.
