Sarah + Jared’s Chic Nestldown Wedding

All of our couples have an amazing story to tell. Sarah and Jared’s is just a little bit cooler than most. Meeting in South Africa (hello romantic!) and joining each other on some fantastic travel adventures is one heck of a way to fall in love.

The first time I met Sarah and Jared, I was stunned by how ridiculously good looking they are. They looked like a model couple getting off the train and walking over to me, hand in hand, for our first planning session. It was during that same planning session that I confirmed their beauty was so much more than skin deep. They were kind, thoughtful, funny, and ambitious people who wanted to create a relaxed and beautiful celebrations for their international family and friends.

When you’ve traveled all over the world, you have a LOT of sites to consider when searching for a wedding venue. Having seen so much natural beauty, it was important to Sarah and Jared to have a venue that had a lot of natural beauty of its own. They found their dream venue in Nestldown. Anyone who has ever been to Nestldown knows that the grounds are truly world class, and our couple was excited to share this gorgeous property with their guests.

A Menu Fit for a World Traveler

Food is an important cultural aspect no matter where you are! Sarah and Jared wanted to ensure that the menu served at their wedding would be delicious, refreshing, and exciting for their diverse group. Matching up with the South Bay Area’s Cafe Primavera was a perfect choice. Erika Garcia worked with the couple to come up with something that fit all of the criteria and displayed beautifully against the Nestldown backdrop.

Organic, Chic, and Clean Decor

Partnering with Darcy and her superteam over at Seascape Flowers was a great choice to accentuate Nestldown’s given beauty. Using fresh, unique greenery and statement blooms (hello King Proteas!), the wedding was an organic chic dream.

Personal Touches

In addition to the solid entertainment provided by MIRA favorite Turner Hayes (aka DJ Jazzy Thunder) from Elite Entertainment, a friend of the couple entertained guests through song during dinner. The bride’s mother helped design the custom menu and table numbers that rounded out the table settings, and the best man gave one of the most heartwarming speeches of adoration we have ever heard. All in all, a perfect evening (complete with hora!)

Chandana + Imran Part 3 – Luxury City Indian Wedding Reception

The time has come Dreamers! It is finally time to unveil the incredible romance, glamour, and straight-up WOW that was Chandana and Imran’s luxury Indian wedding reception.

After the whimsical backyard soiree the night before and the romantic, vintage inspired ceremony earlier in the day, it was time to treat the guests to something decidedly more formal and opulent.

City View at Metreon was a perfect choice in venue to cap off a whirlwind weekend. It’s central location gave out of town guests a great glimpse of the energy of San Francisco. The industrial, dynamic space gave the perfect setting for a reception that was both elegant and modern, once again blending realms to create something truly unique.

We started with a color scheme fit for royalty. We started with a rich aubergine purple and a regal, warm gold. From there we livened up the palette with magenta and select touches of ivory. The floral goddess known as Natasha from Water Lily Pond did an impeccable job taking the foundation of our design vision and taking it over the top. My jaw about hit the floor when I saw the WLP team raising  the floral chandelier into the air. Complete with orchids, branches, and dripping crystals this chandy was any romantic’s dream come true.

The mix of round and long guest tables were glittering with fine details, such as gold hobnail chargers from Stuart Rentals and the righteously designed table numbers from Throne Invitations. After guests had enjoyed an extended cocktail hour on the terrace, complete with a live string quartet and open air photobooth, they enjoyed a full reception experience complete with heart warming speeches and performances as well as an amazing buffet spread by Amber India Restaurant.

Guests dined and danced the night away amidst the twinkle of the San Francisco city lights. There abundance of luxury was only surpassed by the abundance of love.

Thank you to ALL of the vendors involved in this incredible event. Thank you to the Batchu and Haque families to entrusting this most auspicious occasion to our team, and for making such wonderful children who we are blessed to call MIRA family.

Until the next grand adventure, Dreamers!
