Creating Chemistry

February 24th, 2014

Was sufficiently wowed by my wedding industry peers at The Lab wedding event last night at the history San Francisco Ferry Building. Baked goods galore, a cascade of succulents and cut flowers, amazing Bay Bridge views from the Lab Library where Lily Spruce was stationed, and so much more. What I love about this event is that vendors of different types (e.g. floral, printed goods/paper, photography, sweets) are assigned together to create a vignette they all create together, “creating chemistry” according to The Lab’s tagline. And oh how they did!

Here, a few of my favorites. All photos taken by us.

We’re loving this highlight reel from the July 4 wedding of our clients, Djuna and Brendan. Their reception took place aboard the San Francisco Spirit where we enjoyed the San Francisco fireworks display. It was one of those days that work and fun collided. Congrats Djuna and Brendan!

And beautiful work, Joseph Alan Productions! Man, you guys are goood.

It’s Our First!

September 9th, 2013

Just wanted to take time out of our busy wedding season to say congratulations to the lovely Kelly and Maya, whose same-sex wedding was a first in the history of Lily Spruce! More pictures to come, but here’s an adorable peek into their Save the Dates and wedding invites that Maya, a graphic designer, created. Pay attention to the text–there are some funny little things written in there!

It was a pleasure working with you ladies!

We’re in Matchbook Magazine!

July 8th, 2013

The wedding of our wonderful clients Dave and Brooke Rusenko at the amazing Holly Farm in Carmel Valley was recently featured in the July issue of one of our favorite online publications, Matchbook Magazine (if you haven’t read it, PLEASE do, it’s pretty fantastic!). Turn to page 108 for the two-page spread.

We worked hand in hand with Dave and Brooke exclusively on design, sourcing their dog Lucy’s tutu and leash; working with their invitation designers from Lettermade to blow up a vintage 4′ x 6′ map of Paris; coordinating their rentals of cake stands to house the macarons and cigar bar accoutrements (thanks Archive!) and securing a vintage bike via Craigslist to display a big basket of flowers in the basket! We’ll have more to show you when the profesh pics roll in, but we love the sneak peek, and hope you do too!

A Wedding Dress for Less Than $300. Really.

March 26th, 2013

Marchesa is known the world over for its glamorous frocks worn by the prettiest ladies and actresses strutting on red carpets. It’s beautiful stuff, people. Case in point, Nicole Richie’s dress, reportedly 100 yards of tulle.

And now, Marchesa for the Real People–a.k.a “Pearl by Georgina Chapman of Marchesa” line now selling at JC Penney’s nationwide. For those of you keeping score, that’s $250 for the Marchesa look, and certainly not the price. For which I say, thanks Georgina.

There are also some elegant styles for bridesmaids and for guests. I like this sequined dress and this long-sleeved, lacey short dress number.

Have you seen the collection in person? If so, tellmeallaboutit.
