Missy + Jeff | July 2018 at Ru’s Farm
When I had my first call with Missy I felt an instant connection with her. She was one of the most genuine people I had ever spoken with. I remember hopping off our call and instantly hoping we had the opportunity to work together! As we began planning her and Jeff’s summer RU’s Farm wedding it became so obvious that it was going to be a wonderful time working with them. We also discovered that we both had little squishes that shared the same name! I’m not sure if she got Olivia’s name from Scandal (I know haha), but it made me love her and Jeff even more. They were truly focused on enjoying this time and celebrating with their friends and family and it was reflected in every little detail of the big day. Olivia was part of the entire celebration, and joined all of the festivities; Missy + Jeff showed us all how lucky Olivia was to have them as parents. Missy wanted a simple, beautiful wedding day centered around their family, friends, delicious food, and amazing wine! We incorporated elements and touches that focused on the style and vibe of Ru’s Farm while tying in her refined style. We created custom paper pieces that incorporated beautiful string lights, the space was accented with the Ru’s Farm jugs and miscellaneous decor items that tied the wine country feel into it all.
A Huge thank you to Torrey Fox for being so amazing and capturing all these incredible moments + details!
I hope you enjoy! Happy Planning!
Florals were inspired with soft neutrals like peach and blush; complimented with sage green foliage and pops of berry + hot pink
We supported the color palette with grey + navy + plum linens and to help tie the bridesmaids dresses into the overall vision.
We used the Farm Table + Bench Collection from Encore Event Rentals to tie the rustic elegant feel together.

Dominique (“Nique”) and Julien’s wedding was SUCH an incredible day to be a part of. I loved getting to know the two of them throughout the planning process. Nique, my fellow spreadsheet and organizing enthusiast, will always have a special place in my heart! ; )
Not only are they a super sweet and fun couple, they are surrounded family and friends are just as kind and friendly. Their big day was certainly an extension of that – so many elements were created by family and friends: the arch they were married under made by Nique’s brother, hanging wood succulent containers also created by her brother, family and friends singing along with the jazz band during cocktail hour, hand crafted garland and other décor, Nique wore a redesigned version of her mom’s wedding gown while her dad performed their ceremony in English AND French, and through it all, two of their photographer-friends captured the entire day. A truly beautiful celebration!
Their weekend fête took place at River’s Bend in Philo, where many of their guests stayed and enjoyed the site as well as the surrounding Mendocino County wineries and dining.
One of my most memorable moments of the evening: watching Nique and her brother perform to Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” as they used to do as kids. Let’s just say it was an awesome routine I won’t soon forget!
Their wedding was featured in SF Gate! Read more about this incredible couple and their wedding day here: http://www.sfgate.com/style/unionsquared/article/Couple-make-a-French-connection-in-the-East-Bay-6067204.php?cmpid=twitter-mobile

Doreen and Daniel were one of the many fun couples I was honored to work with this year. But what stood out about these two, was how they let their wedding day reflect them. From handing out engraved flasks, to dancing down the aisle (even in between all the rows off guests) they made each and every moment reflect them as a couple. This is what I wish for all of my couples! It made a memorable day, absolutely unforgettable, not only to themselves, but all their family and friends there to celebrate with them.
I will never forget their awesomeness! Congrats to you both!
This amazing couple and their group of family and friends, was undoubtedly one of the funnest weddings I have ever been a part of! They really know how to celebrate! You could feel all the joy and happiness that everyone felt for them. I love being able to say I was part of such an incredible day for these two amazing people!
Their love seemed to grow with each passing moment. The way they shared moments together, you could see how deeply passionate and in love they were with each other. It was a wedding to remember, filled with more memorable moments in the hours of the wedding then some people have in a lifetime!
Not only were Doreen and Daniel amazing, but I had the pleasure to work with such an incredible group of vendors! Jake and Necia were incredible in every way possible. I can't say enough great things about them. I highly, recommend them to my couples getting married on the Central Coast! Rain Studios who provided the Videography was also incredible to work with! Fantastic personalities, and amazing work (see link below)! This group of vendors were super stars all the way from hair and make-up to Jesse who completely rocked out the night!
