Where to start when it comes to the wedding of sweet Sara Rose and her love Alan! Sara and I first started working together in January of 2015. She hired TSLE for full planning and was looking for a venue that was close to San Francisco, had redwood trees, and would allow her to have a dinner under the stars and dancing indoors. We really found a match in Ralston White Retreat and to make it even sweeter, it was located in Mill Valley. Just steps from where both Sara and Alan grew up and in the town where they both attended the same high school! Really, does it get any more perfect than that?It does. The couple wed on a gorgeous July day with the redwoods as their backdrop along with a lovely Chuppah. This union was truly a coming together of the LGBTQ community to support and surround Sara and Alan as they embarked on this next chapter of their relationship as husband and wife.Epic and thoughtful are two words that I would use to describe this wedding. The cocktail hour took place on the front porch of the house. Behind the bar, two large hedges read, “ This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” A line from a poem that Alan recited to Sara when he proposed.Dinner took place under a canopy of twinkling bistro lights. The tables were decorated with navy linens, coral napkins that perfectly matched the flowers, miniature spray painted animals, which were a tie to the subtle woodland theme and laser cut place cards.Guests made their way inside for a killer dance party and dessert situation. An entire room dedicated to sweets like a snack/candy/popcorn bar, two wedding cakes to end all wedding cakes and even donuts being fried up onsite! Whew. What a wedding!Congratulations and so much love to Sara & Alan!
