Va de Vie Events has a fresh face!

We're excited to share that Va de Vie Events has a fresh face and if you have friends or family who are recently engaged or planning a party, please don't hesitate to send them our way. Several of you have referred new clients to us and we truly appreciate it. More importantly, Brittany and I hope you are doing fabulously (many of you have grown your family by one)! Share pics if you like (if we're not already friends on Facebook or Instagram). We're so happy to have been a part of your journey in your marriage or a milestone birthday/celebration. 

And there have been many anniversaries this month (Natalie+Jose, Narine+Raffi, Dan+Joyce, Angelica +Daniel, Heather+Blair, Dayna+Jamaal, Kirsten+Mo, Ian+Sarah, Erin+Matt, Lauren+Chris, Rachelle+Francisco) -- congrats on years 1-2-3!

Jess + Josh Wed

We're swooning over the precious details that Jessica, a graphic designer, put together for her wedding to Josh at the Golden Gate Officer's Club in the Presidio. Brittany and I loved bringing it all together with Miraglia Catering, Kelly Boitano Photography, One True Love Vintage Rentals, Night Owl Photo Booth and Pinkie's Bakery. Dress by Sarah Seven.

Pretty in Pink Feature on Green Wedding Shoes

Today, Va de Vie Events is featured on Green Wedding Shoes for Katie + Peter's "Pretty in Pink" glitter-glam, woodland themed wedding at the Axis Cafe in San Francisco. We had coordinated a friend of Katie's wedding (Britta + Kyle, see ) and we were honored when Katie reached out to us to do hers.

Katie is an artist and sculptor so she was up for the challenge of handcrafting the beautiful details of her wedding -- and her mom is equally as talented. On the day of the wedding, Axis Cafe's modern barn and patio were dripping with beautiful pink details; nearly 1,000 handmade pieces made this wedding extraordinary thanks to Katie and her mom's diligent work throughout the year (and I made the terrariums!).

Featured on Style Me Pretty!

Va de Vie Events was so thrilled to be part of Megan and Amit's journey to the altar. The bride and groom had a wonderful sense of style (helps that the bride is a fashion blogger and marketer) and pulled in a great team of vendors that I love like, like @Onelove Photography, Chestnut & Vine Floral Design, @Beauty Bug Makeup (@kansinee), @Event Magic, @Big Fun DJs, @Torino Cakes, Green Cheeze Photobooths and my lovely associate @Brittany Piehl. Cheers to Megan and Amit!!


Megan and Amit used Etsy for a lot of their pretty details and we had fun putting them all together:
Dessert bar; vessels provided by Va de Vie Events; cupcakes by Torino Baking
Custom kippah
Don't you love the bowtie napkins?
Wedding tunnel! They are such a lovely couple!

Hot Spot: Palace of Fine Arts

Congrats to my most recent clients! Leah and Josh got married Memorial Day weekend at an intimate ceremony held at Fay Park and celebrated their marriage with an intimate group of friends and family at the San Francisco Art Institute.

The day was perfect despite a disaster that happened one hour before the ceremony: the photographers' cameras (two D-800s), laptops and peripheral equipment were stolen with less than 60 minutes to get new equipment! I was quick to dial pro shop, Calumet, in Potrero Hill and my day-of assistant drove one of the two photographers there so they could purchase new equipment -- and got back just in time. Leah and Josh got hitched without even knowing about the mishap (and how much of a nail biter the whole incident was) until two days later. Whew!

The photo below is from their "Trash the Dress" session a week later with Sierra Blanco Photography. Here's to Leah and Josh!

On a recent Saturday, newlyweds Joshua and Leah S. seemed oblivious to the world as their big day was documented amid the Palace's grandeur.

Easy Cinco de Mayo Centerpiece

Last summer, my friend (and 2010 bride-client), Sugi hosted a fiesta themed housewarming. I was happy to help create the centerpieces for her tables -- all you need is to buy cacti, succulents or flowers and plant them in large and small cans from the "ethnic" aisle of your local grocery store.

More ideas on our Pinterest board, "Fiesta"!
