Joann & Steven Tie the Knot!


Congratulations to the new MR. and MRS. STEVEN BLANCAVER!  Their "Big Day" was last October 20, 2012 with their Ceremony at Mission Dolores Basilica followed by their reception held at the historic landmark hotel, The Mark Hopkins Inter-Continental, nestled atop prestigious Nob Hill.  This stylish couple's Wedding dazzled with majestic sophistication, panache and enchantment, that left everyone intrigued with savoir faire.  

Thank you, Steven and Joann, for allowing me to help you create an amazing Wedding that was as fabulous as you!

Beginnings without endings
Each day bringing new promises
For the eternity signified
By the rings on your fingers
Fingers entwined in moments
Of shared love and strength
To never again know
The fear or isolation
Of loneliness
For two people are now one
Each with independence
But merging together
One Heart, One Soul

Special KUDOS goes to Caroline Winata of Milou and Olin Photography for capturing these stunning images of their Special Day.  THANK YOU to my incredible team of Wedding Dreammakers and to my Associate, Alex Barranco ... as always, you've all outdone yourselves!
