We have shown you non-traditional ways to have dessert - cookies, cupcakes, and more - but traditional is never a bad way to go. Pretty cake! #oaklandwedding #bayareawedding #oaklandevents #oakland #lakemerritt

"It was a perfect fall day in the East Bay. Nicole hung out with her best friends, sister and grandmother while getting her hair and makeup done while Stephen and his mom practiced their first dance, and his dad was there to help with his tie. The ceremony took place in the beautiful redwood grove at Piedmont Community Hall with many friends and family in attendance. A special chair was set aside with flowers in remembrance of Nicole’s mom." 📷: @juniperspringphotography, 💐: @rare_sparrow, 💄: @lynnyeemakeup, 🍴: @aforkfullofearth, 🍰: @indiecakesandpastries, 🎤: @heartofgolddjs

Two tiered naked cake for a beautiful wedding at the Sequoyah Country Club tonight #NattyCakes #oaklandwedding #oaklandcakes #weddingcake #nakedcake


After a month long break, I’m back for my last 2 weddings of the year. Yesterday’s wedding was magical. The historic venue provided so much grandness and character and was simply amazing dressed up. Congrats Danielle and Ryan!

Nothing like a white pumpkin and some pink bling for a fun ring shot! 💖

Venue: @sequoyahcc
Planning: @bohemetipievents

A shot from a recent #wedding; understated and rustic, with live succulents and classic flavors. Focus was on the bride and groom’s favorite flavors and tying in their theme of #rustic #elegance. Let us create something special for your wedding day!

Those eyes! Amanda did her own styling on her wedding day, from her makeup and hair, to adding the sweetest little butterflies on her dress to match her own sense of style. 💜

These cuties were married this weekend in Oakland. The 4-legged family members couldn't make it but they made a cameo via cardboard cutout and I almost forgot to take a photo I laughed so hard. (Almost). Jamaica + Philippines FTW. 😍 #noordinarylovekl #oaklandwedding #portra800 #frenchie #pitbullove #napaweddingphotograher #bayareaweddingphotographer

Happy Monday! We're still trying to get used to these chilly mornings, and staring at gorgeous summer wedding images doesn't help! .
How was everyone's weekend? We spent Saturday producing a private residence birthday celebration. Sunday was all about R+R in Oakland, with brunch at @HogsApothecary with friends and some holiday shopping at @urbanairmarket, supporting local sustainable businesses. We got the opportunity to chat with many of the business owners and vendors, and were completely inspired by all the stories and creations. We even ran into our friends @westerneditions, who had an adorable setup of their beautiful letterpress pieces. .
Time to go re-fill the coffee and tackle that task list!

Stepping into this Monday with a full week of things on the to-do list before we fly out! Sending out a ton of galleries & emails in the next few days so keep an eye out!! 📨
I also just took a look around the house & realized how zoned-in I’ve been on editing as much as I can, so it’s a little messy everywhere else 😂🙈 I totally do this thing of making piles of things to pack & to tackle all over the house before it all gets organized. Anyone else do that? 👜🎒

I promised @eli_the_ripper I would have this portrait taken. Eli, thank you for whipping my arms into shape prior to the wedding and for always being a great trainer and friend! (Please no more biceps!)

Pineapple slices will forever remind me of The Sweet Factory in Stonestown Mall. Does that place exist anywhere? They were a favorite of mine in highschool, although they were either perfectly soft or hard as a rock 😩 #pineappleslices #pineapplegummy #candybar #weddingcandybar #weddingsweetstable #sanfranciscowedding #oaklandwedding #bayareaweddings #bayareaevents #sanfranciscopartyplanner

LES is the *best* event planning company in the Bay Area. *
In 2011, when I first started working at AF, I got thrown into the Fashion Show about 6 days after starting. That was the first time I got to work with @leftwichevents, and as it would be for the many many events after, it was great. I knew that LES *had* to be my partner on my wedding. *

Deborah and Sam helped me with the planning, and I had a whole crew there to help that day. That includes my dear friend @chrissypad who just kept working, even though he was supposed to be a guest! Thank you LES for making my wedding perfect.

It's incredibly hard to showcase in a visual medium how wonderful Scott @djcams was as the DJ at the wedding. So here are some people dancing to his great tunes! DJ Cams incorporated my indie music love with lots of great dance stuff. And like all my other vendors, Scott was super nice and helpful. Thanks Scott for helping us rock!

My absolute favorite photo from my parents wedding was this one, where they cut their wedding cake with a sword. So you can swipe to see how we recreated that!

And here is our stunning cake! Jennifer was able to combine her gorgeous watercolor cakes with my art deco dreams! The Art Deco topper is from JolieEnRoseVintage on etsy. Thank you @honeycomb_desserts for making our wedding beautiful and yummy!

I've been following @honeycomb_desserts for a long time, admiring her gorgeous table scapes and dessert spreads. Add to that Jennifer just be so nice and her desserts being insanely delicious! Well, I was sold. Her team took my desire for Art Deco, but bright colors and made this spread for us. Close up on the cake next.

Who is ready for more wedding spam? When I talked on the phone with April from @petalworkssf, I immediately knew that we jived. She understood that I wanted bright colors and fun. And she made it happen within my budget! Beautiful bouquets, great centerpiece, and a STUNNING wedding arch. (I need to find another picture to showcase that.)

You were the one waiting for me when I was looking for you 💕 Such a sweet moments. Really enjoyed this @vizcayasac Wedding!

Ok, time for the dress! I purchased it at Strut Bridal and had amazing alterations done by Lucy in San Bruno.

I thought, as a plus size bride that finding the dress would be a horrible experience. However, I fortunately found @strutbridal and was able to visit their Long Beach shop.

I talked about it right after - it was the best experience! Tamiko and the whole staff took great care of me. I tried on a ton of gorgeous gowns, all of which FIT and made me feel beautiful.
When I tried on this dress, I immediately started dancing. It wasn't what I thought I would get at all, but I loved it/love it. It partially inspired our Art Deco theme. Hat tip to my mom @mwardbad for picking it out for me to try.

This probably shows @choicosmetics magic even more than my wedding photos. Here is my before and after makeup trial photos. Wow! (Also on a sentimental note, Jon once told me he prefers red faced Erin over made up Erin and I turned into a pile of goo. Reader, I married him).

Next up, makeup! Christina Choi @choicosmetics did such a lovely job on my makeup.

I have pretty severe rosacia that I hate. Christina covered that, made me glow, and the makeup lasted all night long. Plus she is a lovely lovely person. (Cameo with my Dad in the last photo, hi Dad!).

Ok, now that I have my gorgeous @thedief wedding photos, I can start shouting out my amazing vendors. Let's start at the top of the head... I'm lucky that @ernestomeneses did hair for me, my mom, and sister. I'm more lucky to call him a friend.

Ernesto did a killer job. He listened, adjusted during our trial, made magic happen with my bangs, and overall made me feel beautiful. I couldn't be more happy.

If you get something special in your stocking this year 💍, let Claremont Club & Spa, named @diablomagazine's 2017 Best Wedding Venue, make your wedding dreams come true! #WeddingWednesday

Calvin got some major air while jumping the broom with his gorgeous wife Leila! What a fun tradition!

I bet you can't guess what is being tossed at this wedding?! Hint, it's not rice. 😉

That look he’s giving her tho...😍

I love this moment between Anita and Aaron during their ceremony. The light glowing up her veil is just icing on the cake ✨✨

Sitting in this cold Seattle weather missing that beautiful California sunshine we got for Sandy & Tony’s wedding last Saturday. #justmarried
