California born and bred, this New York City-based couple wanted to tie the knot in the Golden State. San Francisco's elegant Flood Mansion proved to be the perfect location for Jayme and Slater's classic, contemporary celebration, and with the help of Elise Paisnel at Dream a Little Dream Events, they threw a fête not likely to be forgotten. The Village Invites created a modern monogram for the pair and a timeless calligraphed invitation spread the word about their wedding to family and friends.
After trying on a dizzying number of dresses, Jayme chose a stunning Carolina Herrera gown she first spotted in Town & Country. The bride paired diamond and pearl drop earrings, an understated hydrangea, ranunculus and garden rose bouquet by Haute Blossoms and a pair of white Badgley Mischka peep toes with her breathtaking white, taupe and pale blue frock. Slater cut a handsome figure in a bespoke tuxedo from District Homme, while the couple's bridal party looked lovely in gauzy, blush-colored gowns from Jenny Yoo and classic black tie.
The pair and their bridal party dressed at the Mark Hopkins Hotel, and met for a first look and portraits in San Francisco's spectacular Nob Hill neighborhood. After exchanging their vows on the steps of the historic home, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed cocktails and cornhole in the Cortile. Meanwhile, the Grand Hall was transformed into an elegant dining room complete with white linens, gold Chiavari chairs and modern floral arrangements from Haute Blossoms. LRE Catering served a sumptuous supper before the couple's high-energy cover band got everyone on the dance floor. A slice of cake by Abby's Bake Sale, a few glasses of Champagne and one pair of ripped tuxedo pants later, and the new Mr and Mrs were certain of one thing–they'd had exactly the sort of joyful celebration they'd hoped for.
Luckily, the talented Josh Gruetzmacher was on hand to capture every moment, so Jayme and Slater can always relive that beautiful night. Tell me, do you have a favorite image from this wonderful wedding? I'll confess–I had the most impossible time narrowing the shots for this post down because I thought all the photos were so spectacular!
