Game of Thrones
Designer Baby Shower for my baby sis

When we found out my baby sister was having a little boy, I knew that I wanted to have it somehow revolve around her and little prince. Along with our husbands, we are both huge fans of the show Game of Thrones and I am absolutely in awe of the sets and costumes, I seriously dream about the fashion. So when brainstorming about how to theme my Little Prince Baby Shower, it clicked! GAME OF THRONES!!! Not cheesy or gory, but like a big celebratory feast with lots of candle light, fresh fruits, loaves of bread, wine flowing and accents of brass and dark jeweled tones. I had the idea to create a wall feature with some personalized banners just for Lindsay and Drew, the first, a silhouette of a German Shepard with the ears tweaked larger to resemble their own Shepard mix, Sadie. The second banner had a 'W' for their House Name, and the final a Viking hat to signify both of their Nordic ancestry. PJ worked with a combination of her treasures and mine adding in leafy greens, berries, and citrus from my backyard. For lunch we served 'Pigeon Pie' (hand-made by mom and dad) which were little chicken and apple stuffed hand pies, Potato Porridge, and a fresh Spinach Salad. And how amazing is this cake we worked with Katrina Rozelle to design?! Perfection! This was hands downs the most beautiful event my mom and I have ever thrown and there is no one more deserving of it than my little princess.

Hilary & Sean Tie the Knot on the Amalfi Coast
Part Two

Here is the second part of Hilary & Sean's dreamy Amalfi Coast wedding! We have only begun to scratch the surface of this incredible venue! Wait until you see the Crypt where the newly wed couple celebrated with dinner and dancing. AMAZING!!!

Words from the Bride and Groom
Un invito ad amare – Some say it’s not where you are but who you're with that matters, we decided to combine the two. A late summer wedding on the Amalfi Coast of Italy with our closest friends and family, what could be better?

The inspiration was simple – Natural beauty meets ethereal elegance; the biggest hesitation was defining the theme. I just had an idea of the look I wanted which was an organic, effortless, romantic vibe.

Each location was carefully chosen to exemplify the “destination” in Destination Wedding. We knew that if we got it right, our guests would deliver the final contribution: their own unique love and energy, making this an unforgettable trip. The wedding dress: I decided to work with local San Francisco talent, Suzanne Hanley at Atelier des Modistes. The dress holds special significance since it is one of a kind, and involved a monthly ritual involving my fiance in the quaint neighborhood of Russian Hill. Sean often enjoyed beer and pizza next door while the Powell/Hyde cable trolley passed by, waiting hours as Suzanne and I perfected our vision. Luna Convento for Welcome Dinner – an ancient coastal tower in the town of Amalfi. Designed to set the tone and create the high-level of excitement which was to carry throughout the rest of the week. The décor was kept simple to highlight the beauty of the venue – all white flowers with the world- famous Amalfi lemons incorporated in the floral arrangements.

Villa Cimbrone Wedding Day – the photos speak for themselves. The villa’s origins can be traced back to the 11th century. Once the private estate of a famous Italian aristocrat, now an exclusive 5 star getaway in the quaint town of Ravello.

Hilary & Sean Tie the Knot Amalfi Coast Style
Part One

Hilary & Sean's wedding along the Amalfi Coast was not just a dream wedding, but a dream trip and experience I got to enjoy with my husband for our own wedding anniversary. Celebrating the days before and after with Hilary and Sean made it feel like we've been friends forever. I'm so happy we found each other, they are such a fun couple and guess what?! This beautiful lady has a beautiful twin sister equally as fun and beautiful (who's vow renewal is coming soon)!!!!

This wedding was such a dream, the ceremony was on the lawn of Ravello's Villa Cimbrone overlooking the ocean. The ocean that eventually blended in with the sky took your breath away, but the extraordinary arch and aisle crafted and designed by Laboratorio La Rosa Canina was awe-inspiring. Laura Frappa of Exclusive Italy Weddings did a tremendous job not only designing this elegant affair, but all of the events ran seamlessly and our trip detail was flawless.

CATHEDRALS


PHOTOGRAPHY // Jennifer Skog + Shannon Paras

HAIR + MAKEUP // Lindsay Skog

BAND // Cathedrals


The San Francisco duo Cathedrals, musician Johnny Hwin and songstress Brodie Jenkins has taken the music world by storm with their unique blend of electro-pop beats and the glorious sound of Brodie's vocals. They have no intention of limiting themselves to a certain genre; which is what made this shoot kick ass. With every single they release having their own sound and vibe, we were able to create a collection of different moods and visions all in a day's work. It's not every day that you get to be surrounded by such talent; listening to Johnny serenade us in the raw, it's cool. Real Cool. Nothing better than live music. I wish we could show more, but we still have more singles to come out! So hold tight, there is more amazingness to come from this duo and our shoot :)

Listen to their first two tracks C A T H E D R A L S : Unbound & C A T H E D R A L S : HARLEM
