Kathleen + Dino

The wedding of Kathleen and Dino is special to me for so many reasons. Not only are the bride and groom two of my closest friends (I introduced them too!), but Kathleen Deery is my longtime colleague and partner in making so many of my clients’ weddings beautiful. The opportunity to plan their wedding was a dream come true.

The day was marked with classic San Francisco style. Their wedding ceremony in Grace Cathedral’s Chapel of Grace, under glow of candlelight, was simply breathtaking.

Guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner and dancing to 15-piece City Swing Band at the Asian Art Museum. Finding a favorite element of the day is difficult, because I truly love each and every detail. But at the top of my list might be the escort cards presented on silver trays by Paula LeDuc Fine Catering’s servers. The beautiful gold calligraphy by Tara Jones was nothing short of stunning.
