On May 11, the elegant Garden Court at the Palace Hotel will host the 2013 BritWeek Ball. This year’s grand finale to BritWeek 2013 is honoring the popular PBS series, Downton Abbey, with a 1920s-inspired evening, including a three-course dinner, champagne, cocktails, and of course, dancing. Costumes are encouraged!
Each spring, BritWeek celebrates the creativity and Innovation between Britain and California.
This spectacular South Asian wedding lasted three entire days starting with the traditional Sangeet on Friday. Every last detail from the sparkling jewels to the extravagantly painted henna tattoos on the bride's hands served a special purpose. The groom arrived atop a white horse, and later in a Buick Eighty Eight, as loved ones danced alongside.
What better way to celebrate this event fit for royalty than at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco? The couple could not have been more in love, making the event that much more fantastic. No words can describe this beautiful wedding, so let's just let the photos speak for themselves!

Behold, this year's 16th annual Petchitecture Gala benefitting PAWS (Pets Are Wonderful Support), taking place at the Palace Hotel on April 23rd.
Who doesn't have fond memories of gluing together ramshackle gingerbread houses with snow-white frosting and candy decor in elementary school?
