About Me: Born and raised in the SF bay area, I now live in Oakland with my fiance Dan and work in San Francisco at an advertising agency. Dan and I were high school sweethearts (cue the "aww" and/or general shock)--in fact, we went to junior prom together! As someone who is typically described as organized, together and calm, I'm very excited for the wedding planning ahead! My favorite part of wedding planning is all the quality time you get to spend with family and amazing friends. It is such a good excuse to drink champagne!

Wedding Style: Dan and I are definitely jeans and t-shirt kind of people, so we knew from the start that we wanted a casual wedding. We like to describe the wedding style and vibe as the most fabulous backyard party you've ever been to. So great food, gorgeous flowers, and fantastic wine but all in a place where you can take off you shoes and put your toes in the grass. You probably won't see much bling at the wedding (besides my ring of course!), but instead soft, cozy and casual textures and materials.
