Stefani and Jeremy Tie the Knot!

Congratulations to our newlyweds, STEFANI MILLER and JEREMY GOLDSTEIN, who tied the knot last October 19, 2013 at Foreign Cinema.

Their Wedding was held at Foreign Cinema, an ultra glam "hot spot" that has garnered local, national and international acclaim as a quintessentially San Francisco dining experience.  Their menu boasts of a California/Mediterranean-inspired cuisine in an industrial chic setting located in the heart of the bustling Mission District.  Looking at the overall design, you first become infatuated with this urban masterpiece ingeniously created by Chefs/Owners Gayle Pirie and John Clark.  The Outdoor Courtyard was the site of their Ceremony which later was transformed to kings table seatings while Guests dined under the stars watching their favorite movie, The Goonies, projected along the back wall for everyone's enjoyment.  Adjacent from the Patio was their indoor Dining Room appointed with cathedral ceiling heights of brick walls and an expansive bar, that had all the comforts for fine dining warmed by a large fireplace.  The Cocktail Reception and Dancing both took place in the Modernism West Art Gallery where handcrafted libations, delectable savories and scrumptious late-nite bites were served.  Seductive ambiance, stylishly prepared cuisine and impeccable service by a remarkable team of Culinary Magicians, made for an unforgettable synergy that offered facets to help create a spectacular evening for Stefani and Jeremy.  Suffice it to say, the entire Wedding Day was as stylish, whimsical and sophisticated as our couple!

Special thanks to Evonne and Darren Wong with U Me Us Studios who uniquely captured these captivating images.  And to my incredibly talented "Dream Team" of Vendors for helping me create memories for their Special Day ... I tip my hat off to all of you.
