Allure Wedding: Marin Art and Garden Center

This Allure Wedding was such a pleasure to plan and coordinate!  It was my first time working at the Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, and I loved everything about working at this unique venue.  With the team from MAGC and with all of the awesome North Bay vendors hired, I was thrilled to make the dream my clients had for their wedding a reality.  Here are some pictures of the gorgeous flowers by Kate's Blossoms.My bride wanted her wedding flowers to be bright and feminine, with pinks and corals, and as many peonies as possible.  Since the ceremony was in a garden, the flowers complimented the look...I love an intimate garden wedding!  And Kate, our illustrious florist, managed to find the perfect peonies--probably the very last of the season.  Beautiful!

The cake is by Sweet Things in Tiburon, and Kate decorated it with the garden flowers.

Caterer:  Insalata's Restaurant and Catering in San Anselmo.  Chris Engle, the catering manager, was a delight to work with and the food was DELICIOUS.  I was seriously impressed with Insalatas from start to finish.  I will highly recommend them from now on to anyone planning a party, or going out to eat in the area.  I can't say enough good things about them!

Venue:  The Marin Art and Garden Center is a true gem of a wedding venue in the SF Bay Area, if you ask me.  It is beautiful, but not over manicured or inaccessible.  It is extremely efficient as a venue, but remains a relaxed and 'low key' place to host a wedding or party. The MAGC staff were all kind and helpful, and most importantly, really took pride in their job.  As a wedding planner, I couldn't have asked for a better place to go to work!

My bride and groom were over the moon--about each other, and about their wedding.  I caught a couple stolen glances and kisses and really felt the love!  Cheers to everyone involved, and of course, to my sweet clients who closed out June 2012 for me in an amazing way!
