Hall Wine Cave is one of my favorite spots for an intimate rehearsal dinner. The cave is pristine yet welcoming and the perfect showcase for Hall's extensive art collection and phenomenal wines. Deep in the cave lies the perfect spot for a dinner with close family and friends - a room that is filled with a sparkling chandelier that resembles an upside down tree. After cocktails on the veranda overlooking the vineyards, guests make their way through the tunnels lined with oak barrels to dine under the glimmer of the tree chandelier. It makes for a truly magical evening.

Remember Jason and Laura? We're kicking off 2011 with their adorable Sausalito wedding at Cavallo Point. Cavallo Point is a stunning, eco-friendly luxury hotel located on a historic military base- just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. It has breathtaking views of the city and made the perfect backdrop for Jason and Laura's fall nuptials. The couple exchanged "I-dos" in front of an altar of bright orange dahlias created by the super talented Torryne Choate of Birch San Francisco. After the ceremony, guests gathered on the Verbena Terrace and sipped on specialty drinks like Basil Cucumber Soda served in glass mason jars (complete with striped paper straws!) and waited for the bride and groom to make their entrance. When Jason and Laura pulled up in their antique Rolls Royce, guests waved custom fabric red, orange, and blue flags to kick off the reception. It was such a magical moment and really set the night off on a fun note!
After dinner, guests were lead by a parade of brass musicians to the Mission Chapel for dancing and dessert. (Even the parade musicians were decked for the occasion - we outfitted them in tweed vests and custom bowties to match the guests' flags.) The Chapel was aglow with a soft orange light and filled with comfy orange banquettes from Blueprint Studios. Upon entering, we screened Jason and Laura's love story and passed parmesan popcorn in vintage popcorn boxes. Then, guests cut loose and danced the night away to the amazing sounds of Chris Clouse and Dave Kim.
