Yesterday was our San Francisco Walk Through a Wedding, “Boxcars & Bugle Boys.” And the moment I stepped through the hidden doors that looked like they were just whiskey shelves at our speak easy “Bourbon & Branch”, I knew this one was going to be one for the record books. From there we went down a trap door into the basement, where Julia and the Style Interns (Ajira, Nicole & Tammie) had transformed the Bourbon Room into a scene the Andrews Sisters themselves would’ve felt at home in. We had USO girls, a live candy bar in the form of our “Candy Girl,” and tons of real live nostalgia including love letters actually written during the war.
In short, it took me a good ten minutes to pick my jaw off the ground. See, I thought I had grand, grand visions for this one. But as soon as I saw the real thing, I realized I hadn’t been dreaming nearly big enough.
I love it when that happens. :)
Sneak Peek: Boxcars & Bugle Boys
HUGE thanks to Elizabeth & Ryan from Elizabeth Ryan Photography for flying out all the way from Baltimore to be our 1940’s inspired bride & groom. I’d say they rocked it.
The DETAILS!! Gah, the details!
Come on! How cute is Julia as our Candy Girl?? And major love to Jim & Ravyn for rocking out our paper once again!
And here’s some of our crew at the end of the night! You guys are amazing! Thank you so much for coming with hearts so open and giving 110% percent. We love you guys!
And of course, thanks to the Andrews Sisters for just being so awesome and giving us the inspiration in the first place.
