May and Calvin’s Garden Wedding


Every other week, my mom finds a way to subtly ask (and sometimes not so subtly) when Alan and I are going to get married. I think the most horrendous thing she could ever imagine for me would be if I didn’t get married before turning 35, but honestly, I just don’t see what the rush is. We’ll eventually get married when the time feels right, but until then, it’s just not at the top of my list of things to do. But then, every once in a while, I’ll see a wedding like my friend May’s — which is amazing — and I feel like I might just change my mind. (Don’t tell my mom!) 
I love everything about May’s wedding — the colors, her dress, all the flowers (by her talented mom!), and the crafty details. Isn’t it the most beautiful day? She says, “We felt so lucky that all of our loved ones would be traveling from near and far to share our special day with us so we decided that what was important was to make it very personal and to spoil them with our favorite eats and treats.” They had catering by RoliRoti, a San Francisco Ferry Building staple (known for his porchetta sandwiches), and instead of a wedding cake, they had a “cake” made up of three cheese wheels. I think the raddest part of the reception was the cigar and scotch tasting bar they set up for guests to enjoy.  

To see more of her gorgeous wedding (and there are lots more pretty details to look at), you can check out the full post on Style Me Pretty.

p.s. Pictures from my friend Jennifer’s beautiful, ocean-side wedding (she’s May’s sister!)
