Real Wedding: Isabel and Eric

by ::

Isabel and Eric met at a mutual friend’s birthday party and hit it off immediately!  As family is so important to Isabel, Eric wanted everyone to be there for the proposal.  He proposed to Isabel during their annual family San Francisco Christmas trip, in front of the tree in Union Square with all of their loved ones surrounding them.  The love these two share is undeniable and Team KWE couldn’t wait to be a part of their wedding day planning process.

When asked how they envisioned their wedding, Isabel and Eric wanted it to be a little boho, chic, outdoorsy and very romantic. With beautiful outdoor landscapes, The HideOut created the perfect atmosphere for a romantic and chic outdoor wedding.  Through personalized decor, accented by Isabel’s own calligraphy, stunning floral arrangements, and a soft color palette of oatmeal, rose, and sage, Team KWE went to work to turn Isabel and Eric’s wedding day vision into a reality!

Guests arrived on this sunny August afternoon and made their way to the lawn for a gorgeous ceremony.  The HideOut’s wooden arch was draped with stunning oatmeal chiffon and adorned with lovely floral arrangements.  After their intimate ceremony, Isabel and Eric’s guests moved to the reception space to kick off the celebration.

The cocktail hour was full of tasty passed appetizers and cocktails.  When it was time, guests gathered around the dance floor and following the bridesmaids and groomsmen, Isabel and Eric danced their way out for the first time as newlyweds.  Moving right into their first dance, a beautiful moment with Us the Duo’s “Better Together” setting the atmosphere.  Afterwards, dinner was served buffet-style, with a few of Team KWE’s favorites on the menu, including zinfandel-rosemary beef tri-tip and miso glazed salmon.  If that wasn’t enough to satisfy everyone’s taste buds, the dessert station offered scrumptious options as well, including freshly fried cinnamon donuts with a chocolate drizzle.  From here, Isabel and Eric spent the rest of their evening surrounded by their closest family and friends, dancing and celebrating their love.  Team KWE loved working with this amazing couple and we wish them many years of love and happiness in their marriage.  Congratulations, Isabel and Eric!

Real Wedding: Dave and Scott

by ::

Recently featured in Our Weddings Magazine! When Dave and Scott met they instantly knew that their first date sealed the deal between the two of them.  When it came time to pop the question, they planned a dual proposal for their third anniversary.  They proposed to each other at the top of Twin Peaks in San Francisco at sunrise over a bottle of champagne.  How sweet!

It was important to Dave and Scott that the wedding would be fun, aesthetically cohesive, and not too over the top. Both of them work at UC Davis so it was only natural that they chose the Robert Mondavi Food and Wine Institute at the UC Davis Good Life Garden for their venue.  Offering a beautiful olive grove for an outdoor ceremony and having ample lawn space for a gorgeous reception, this venue was perfect for the two of them.  Through a fun color palette of yellow, white, green and blue (inspired by the Presidio), stunning floral and succulent arrangements, and fun photos of their adventures together throughout, Team KWE went to work to turn Dave and Scott’s wedding vision into a reality!

On this sunny April afternoon, guests arrived and found their seats in the naturally beautiful olive grove.  After listening to readings presented by their loved ones and witnessing Dave and Scott commit their love to one another, guests were ready to celebrate the newlyweds!  Attendees moved to the lawn for the cocktail hour, where they enjoyed refreshing beverages and a cheese display from Magpie Cafe, impressive enough to please a true cheesemonger.

Dave and Scott were introduced as a newly married couple to Prince’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover” and sat down for a delicious meal. Magpie did not disappoint, making a gorgeous display of grilled Tri-tip and seasonal veggies.  After multiple entertaining (and hilarious) toasts from friends and family, Dave and Scott opened the dance floor with their first dance.  The dance floor was absolutely packed until the very end of the evening! We absolutely loved working with this amazing couple and we wish them many years of love and happiness in their marriage.  Congratulations, Dave and Scott!
