Nora & Garratt's Engagement. San Francisco

Do the names Diana and Alex ring a bell? You may recall that Diana baked her own multi layered wedding cake. Well, their friends from high school are getting married this summer and gave me a call. I am ever thankful for the wonderful clients that have trusted their weddings to me and suggest that their friends give me a call too!

Recently, while Nora and Garratt were on a spring break/wedding planning trip back to the Bay Area, we met up at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. This happened to also be one of the wettest weeks on record for Northern California which made our indoor plans quite appropriate. Forget about the rain because we had a serene afternoon exploring the museum and pondering some of its more interesting exhibits. There's a reason it's called modern art after all. A break in the storm allowed us to take a short walk to the Zeum Carousel. It's a beautifully restored early 1900's amusement park ride that found a new home in San Francisco when Yerba Buena Gardens was constructed. Arrived just in time for the last two rides of the day. Nice :)

Nora and Garratt described themselves as fun and quirky. Their robot and zombie inspired save-the-date card certainly proves that. Can't wait to see what they come up with on the wedding day because the words steampunk, swords, and robots were mentioned alongside the Arts and Crafts style of the turn of the century venue.
