How to Give an Amazing Wedding Speech from Long Haul Films

The only wedding speech I've ever given was at my sister's wedding. She asked me to do it 20 minutes before the wedding—surprise Melissa! Thanks sis. I was a blubbering mess but one thing is for sure, it came straight from the heart, probably because I didn't have months to dread it. If you're one of the lucky guys or gals asked to make a speech (and ahem, actually have time to prepare for it), you'll want to cozy up to this helpful and if I may add, quite amusing video from ...

San Francisco Modern Wedding from Josh Gruetzmacher

Margaret Elizabeth’s Home Tour

Confession: I've had a girl crush on Margaret Elizabeth for longer than I'll ever admit. With her fabulous jewelry collection, her incredible design sense and infectious go-getter attitude, I'm fairly certain that I'm not alone. So when she let us take a peek at her newly updated San Fransisco pad, I knew it was going to be good, but I didn't realize it'd be absolutely beyond. So while I sit here and swoon, you should feel free to...

Crystal Gentilello’s Bridal Shower

If there's anyone whose style is consistently on point it's Crystal Gentilello, founder and editor of the wildly popular Rue Magazine. So when I caught wind that we'd have a chance at peeking at her gorgeous bridal shower (designed by the extraordinary talent, Kelley Moore, no less), I knew we were in for a treat. But I wasn't aware that we'd be presented with the prettiest of pretty...

How To Make Chocolate Truffles from Jessica Foster Confections

The thought of making chocolate truffles has always felt incredibly intimidating to me. I've considered tackling them in the past, but always ended up grabbing a few at a local bakery in order to satisfy any truffle craving that happens to plague. But with Jessica Foster's tips and tricks, I'm feeling entirely more confident. As it turns out they aren't terribly difficult in the least! And if that wasn't enough to sell me...

It has been dancing in my dreams since I first set sight on it, and I've been counting down the minutes until I could finally share it with the wedding-loving...

A Simple Arrangement

I went to the flower market in SF today with some friends and decided that I should buy some flowers for my wife. I wanted it to be simple and a little wild. I loved seeing all of the raw ingredients in all of the different buckets- ingredients that I’ve seen in finished arrangements at weddings week in and week out. It was like the going to the grocery store for the first time and thinking – yeah, I can cook something all by myself. There were a lot of options to pick from and...
