Fernanda and Vikram were married by the sea in Palos Verdes. It was a breathtaking setting
even without decor but designer & event planner Paul Bott (
added so many beautiful details and warm , saturated color everywhere- it was really one of
the most gorgeous weddings I have ever seen! Fernanda looked exquisite in a bright red
and gold brocade sari. It was a wonderful party . Some of the nicest people I have ever met!

Kate and Seth's San Francisco Wedding

Kate and Seth met during Kate's internship at RIC ( Chicago) where Seth walked right through the center of Kate's OT exercise group. Long time rule being if you walk through the group, you have to dance. Seth was forced to dance, dropped to the floor with an awesomely hilarious move and the rest is history. During their reception we were all treated to a similar experience as Seth let loose with some fancy dance steps, a charming quality in a doctor if you ask me..
The wedding festivities began w/ Kate getting ready at the Marine's Memorial Hotel followed by a quick trip (in a vintage Rolls Royce) to the Palace of Fine Arts for portraits. The historic Sherith Israel was the site for the ceremony followed by a lively party at Marine's Memorial.
It was a wedding evocative of the 1940s - beautiful Kate in a slip dress, the amazing Band (Jambalaya) , an elegant hotel - all the right elements!
