Highlight: Carla and Stewart

by ::

Despite being born and raised on different continents with thousands of miles separating them, fate brought Carla and Stewart together and the love they share has made them inseparable.  When Steward proposed, he spoke completely in German (Carla’s native language) after which, they went to pick out the ring together.  We love a perfectly personalized proposal!

Carla was adamant that she wanted their wedding to be relaxed, intimate and lovely; one that all of her guests, including those coming from Germany, could begin to enjoy the moment they arrived through the entire wedding weekend.  The Inn at Park Winters was just the perfect fit!  Known for it’s “Simple, Country, Luxury,” Park Winters offers stunning outdoor spaces, and an exclusive venue rental for a more intimate feel with ample opportunities for unique decorations.  Team KWE went straight to work to bring Carla and Stewart’s wedding day vision to life!

Guests enjoyed an intimate ceremony on the front lawn, celebrating the nuptials with mini mint mojitos as the cocktail hour began. Chef & Baker served a scrumptious family-style dinner, including a roasted chicken breast with dijon tarragon glaze and a refreshing balsamic cherry salad.  After cake cutting and the first dance, the dance floor opened for everyone to get their groove on.  Guests enjoyed taking pictures, dancing, and bites from a mini dessert display.  Carla and Stewart spent the remainder of their special night surrounded by their family and friends.  We wish you many years of love and happiness.  Congratulations, Carla and Stewart!

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!
