Real Wedding: Jenevie & David

If you follow me on twitter, you must have seen all my tweets regarding one of my best friends wedding. We grew up together and she's practically my sister!  I was honored and blown away when she asked me to coordinate her wedding!  Without any hesitation, I replied "hell yeah!".  I was in shock she would trust me with everything.  Although I was about 6 months pregnant, I had a blast and it was the most beautiful wedding I've ever attended.  There was so much love around, you can just feel it and these stunning images captured by Sasha Photography says it all.  The wedding took place at The Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco on a winter December day and it was remarkable.... stunning.... and just unbelievable!
When you entered the ballroom, it was jaw dropping!  It's pure elegance with the chandeliers above, the dim lighting and gobo which matched her paper stationery, the fireplace lit and the sounds of the bell choir made the ballroom look and feel so magical.  

The bride and groom looked so great!  Calm, relaxed and just happy explains their mood right before walking down the aisle.  
After the ceremony, we turned down the ballroom into the reception area.  It happened so fast and turned out beautifully.  Kings tables lined the ballroom around the dance floor and the head table was front and center.  The tall flower candelabras were the attention getter with tea light candles lit on the tables.      
Their menu was exquisite! Surf and turf... YES please!!!  To go with their San Francisco theme, they even served claim chowder in sourdough bread bowls.  Everything was delicious including the dessert we had after our meal.  The tables were even named after famous San Francisco streets.       
I just love this picture of Jenevie and David.  When they first entered the ballroom as Mr. and Mrs, this photo was taken candidly of their joy and love for all their guests in attendance.  
This couple is HOT! The bride rocked beautifully a Vera Wang gown and her bouquet was filled with feathers and white peonies.  Their escort cards duplicated as favors following their San Francisco theme during the holiday season; a cable car ornament.  
Their cake matched her sash and was dark chocolate with burnt almond sponge, woven with coffee induced creme.  Thinking about it just makes my mouth water!
Jen and David share a very special place in my heart and I couldn't be any happier for them!  They mean the world to me and I'm so blessed I was able to share this incredible journey of planning their wedding.  It's something I'll always cherish and never forget!!!  I can't wait to see their video.  I saw clips during the ceremony and they were ahhh-maze-ing!!!    
The creative mastermind behind it all was Jen and I just executed her needs. Our creative team rocked it and they were all so fantastic to work with!  Many thanks again!
