What better way to escape chilly New York City than with a trip back to sunny San Francisco?
On our recent trip to San Francisco, we met some amazing bridal vendors, attended a few memorable events and of course enjoyed some fantastic views of the Bay!
We got to check out the new Potrero Hill digs of wedding planner extraordinaire Alicia K Designs:
It was great to meet Alicia in person and hear her inspiring story of business successes as she prepares to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her company later this year! As publicists, we especially appreciated the Media Wall she displays in the office. Nice, eh?
We attended ISES event at The Regency Center with presentations by Kate Harrison, founder of Green Bride Guide, and Johanna Walsh, Eco-Events Planner at NY/SF firm Twirl Management. It was great to catch up with old friends and amazing San Francisco wedding vendors including Emily Dreblow of Soulflower Design Studio and Kathryn Kalabokes of Dream a Little Dream Events!
The Regency Ballroom is a grand wedding venue with a huge capacity. While it was too dark to take pictures inside, I snapped a selfie in the Regency’s Grand Bathroom 🙂
We also got invited to accompany a San Francisco Chronicle Style section reporter on a styled shoot featuring accomplished San Francisco men in J. Hilburn attire, photographed in the super hip South Park.
But our favorite event in San Francisco – and the main reason for going all the way West (besides the endless winter….) was the Junior League of San Francisco 2014 Fashion Show, sponsored by Yael Designs. Known as one of San Francisco’s top socialite and fundraising events of the year, it’s one of the very few days to spot local women in gowns – after all, San Francisco is more known for casual hoodies these days.
Here’s our founder Sasha Vasilyuk in Yael Designs rubylite earrings and white Diane von Furstenberg dress:
Yael Designs jewelry was paired with the new fashion line by San Francisco fashion designer and “Project Runway” contestant Melissa Fleis:
As we work with several San Francisco-based clients, it’s always such a pleasure to go back. Especially when it’s snowing outside.
