Love This: Perfect Endings Valentine's Cakes

I'm seriously swooning over these adorable conversation heart cakes from Perfect Endings. I love everything from the spot-on lettering to the choice of quintessential candy heart sayings like, "Hug Me", "Be Mine", "Kiss Me" and "I Love You". Unlike the classic conversation hearts, these cakes don't sacrifice taste for style. Order my favorite - devil's food with luscious fudge frosting - or pick from other irresistible flavors like, red velvet with cream cheese frosting or vanilla with old fashioned raspberry frosting.

Plus, check out Sam's clever spin on a box of chocolates - petite cupcakes resembling old fashioned chocolates in a vintage heart box. The man is brilliant - what can I say? Available exclusively at Perfect Endings. Order by February 10th for Valentine's delivery.

{Other Things I Love}

* If you have ever looked for attire for the young men in your wedding party, you'll appreciate the ring bearer wedding collection from J.Crew. It's so dapper - love the seersucker.

* Custom wedding dress created by Jason Wu. An amazing experience from Nordstrom's bringing together some of the best names in luxury, plus dinner at Per Se to boot. {via The Bride's Guide}

* Bardessono. A new eco-chic hotel in Yountville. It's elegant and peaceful and a great new spot for weddings and events. Think amplified music late night - a rarity in the Napa Valley.

Wedding Weekend Festivities: Sarah + Graham

Sarah and Graham's wedding weekend was a true Northern California experience. On Friday, guests were given the opportunity to partake in multiple activities like kayaking in Monterey Bay, cooking demos, golf and even lavender picking. All activities were an instant hit and were the perfect start to the weekend.

After a day of fun in the sun, guests were shuttled to a BBQ Fiesta at Holman Ranch in the rolling hills of Carmel Valley. They sipped watermelon margaritas (yum!) and enjoyed fresh BBQ Mexican fajitas served family style. We hung custom papel picado banners over the picnic tables which were festive and perfect for the setting.

After dinner, we invited guests to join us for a movie about the bride + groom. During the movie, guests dug into fresh hot churros and reveled in the dramatic flaming Mexican hot chocolate station. And snacked of fresh popcorn, of course!

My Favorite Detail? The flaming Mexican hot chocolate station is pretty hard to beat! However, I also loved the fact we pulled off transportation to/ from all events and activities without a hitch!
