California Home + Design's Online Editor, Owen Ray, wed his lovely wife, Caitlin, at Stern Grove Trocadero Clubhouse in San Francisco. Pardon our bias as CHD's sister company (aka Owen's co-workers), but we can't help getting lost in these wedding photos and falling back in time for a moment.
As the bride prepared for her big day, Otis Redding's "Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay" played in the background–a very fitting tribute to our beautiful City by the Bay, which was the location for Robia and Dave Crisp's fun-filled wedding ceremony.
Gabrielle Medina and Sophana Tann's story started when they were little kids. The Medina family moved into the Tanns' building, and the two families became next-door neighbors. As a child, Sophana played with the Medina boys, and one day they invited Sophana into their house–that's when Gabrielle and he first met.
Initially, they were just friendly neighbors, but as time passed, Sophana started to develop true feelings for Gabrielle. He couldn't tell at the time if she felt the same way, but everyone joked that they would be together when they got older.
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!
Filled to the brim with succulents and accents of grey, cream and yellow, Kristin and Rob's Monterey wedding was a gorgeous and fun-filled day. Allumer Events executed the bride's decor details at the Old Whaling Station and provided the florals as well.. Grapes of Wrath served amazing food and cocktails to the guests, while everyone enjoyed music by Henry Chen of Sound in Motion DJs.

The entire family was involved in making this wedding celebration special. Adela Quinones & Cody Steffani said their vows on the beach over the Labor Day weekend.
Shawn Nohr & Tyler Brooks wanted to celebrate their special day in memory of loved ones who had passed away. The couple chose to say their vows at the Contra Country Club where a tree was planted in honor of Tyler's late grandfather. The couple made sure to take plenty of photos in front of that tree following a lovely ceremony that looked out over the golf course. There was also a gin and tonic bar at the reception for family and friends to sip in Tyler's grandfather's memory.
