We started the day slowly and leisurely at the Inn at the Presidio.  The ceremony was held down the street at the Presidio Chapel, and the reception took place at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio.  Nikol Elaine worked her makeup magic and Yesenia brought her calm hair styling.  Mogan Miller from Spreading Lovely kept the day running smoothly.  DJ Will Magid crushed it on the dance floor.  Flowers by Flora Grubb.

When Ella and Chris told me about their vintage inspired Mad Hatter, Alice in Wonderland themed wedding that was to be held at Ella’s grandparent’s house near Stanford University… I did the happy dance (I’m not proud).  As someone with a flair for theatrics, a love for dressing up, and an appreciation things done differently, I was so stoked to be invited to tell the story of their wedding.

And their wedding was pretty extraordinary.  Ella’s mother insisted on bee’s wax candles, which perfumed the dining area with their aroma.  Ella and her mom scoured yard sales, estate sales, and thrift stores for months before their wedding and collected a miss matched and gorgeous selection of vintage plates and saucers.  The instruction to their florist from Flora Grubb, was to make the flower arrangements fun, weird, and a little creepy.  The flowers were amazing.  The appetizers, from Le Papillon, were like little pieces of art.  Lowe House Creative rocked the event coordination and made sure that everything ran smoothly.  My buddy Hardy Wilson shot the extravaganza with me and we couldn’t help but dust off some fancy pants and dashing duds for the big event.

At one point in the evening, I found myself chatting with one of the guests, and I asked him what kind of work he did.  He said he said his father was a clown (one of my secret dream jobs) and that he was training to be a clown himself.  Of course… a clown.

Once the dancing began, the energy and joy that Ella and Chris shared with their guests flowed onto the dance floor, and the celebration rolled into the night.
