Did you know that I lived in San Francisco for 5 years before I ever rode a Cable Car? ⁠

I've lived here for almost 17 years and I still haven't been to Alcatraz. 🤷🏼‍♀️⁠

But you better believe that anytime I am doing a wedding at The University Club, I make sure my couples get a photo op with these iconic features of SF! ⁠

Wedding tip of the day--⁠

Add 10-15 minutes of alone time into your day-of timeline! I usually recommend for the couple to head off somewhere out of sight from guests either after the ceremony or right after family photos. We make sure to have a plate of appetizers (so you can eat!), some cocktails or bubbles, water, and a quiet space where you and your new husband or wife can relax, take it all in, get a bite to eat, and relish in being newly married. ⁠

I say it a lot, but I'll say it again-- even though it is your wedding day, you don't get to spend a lot of quality one-on-one time with your partner throughout the day. This is why it is important to hire a planner that is going to go through the events and timing of the day and find those little pockets of time where you two can be alone. ⁠

I am not going to lie, there is something uniquely beautiful about the effect COVID had on weddings the last two years. ⁠

My love and appreciation for weddings, couples, and vendors deepened tremendously, but that's a post for another day. ⁠

What I loved most was seeing the evolution of couples' love. Being a sounding board, a confidant, and a friend to couples during some of the most challenging times of their relationship was a role that I humbly assumed and never took for granted. I got to know 2020/21 couples in a way that I've never had the opportunity to before and it made their wedding days all the more special. ⁠

Here's my boo thangs, @bonhallman and @djhallman on their wedding day in 2021 and 2020. Love you both! ⁠✨🥂🌺🌴🍍

Our number one goal is to make your wedding feel completely unique to you and your partner. We want people to just *know* that this wedding has YOU written all over it, but in those fun, subtle ways. ⁠

How do we do this? We get to know YOU and YOUR PARTNER! We spend time talking to you, learning about your families, your relationship, your personalities, how you communicate, what you love, what bugs you... all of the things. ⁠

Here are a few of my favorite examples of how we incorporated unique elements of our couple's lives and relationship into their wedding.⁠

Paper Cranes: An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods. Some stories believe one is granted happiness and eternal good luck. Jenica spent months during the pandemic folding every single paper crane by hand, which @bohemeevents_ turned into the most beautiful ceremony backdrop. ⁠

Books: These books may have just looked like decor on the beverage station, but they packed more meaning. Bonnie and Dylan met and fell in love in Boston, Dylan is an avid surfer (both of them lovers of the ocean), and the Saltwater Table cookbook is a nod to Bonnie's Southern roots and Dylan's love of cooking. ⁠

Deck of Cards with Gin Rummey playing instructions: Alicia and Evan's favorite past time is playing cards in a park, drinking wine, and enjoying the sunshine. Specifically Gin Rummey. In fact, Evan proposed while doing just that-- playing cards, at a picnic in Mexico, while drinking mezcal. ⁠

We love getting creative and coming up with fun and interesting ways to make your wedding more personal and cannot wait to share more about our rad 2022 couples! ⁠

Meet the newest associate planner and designer of hand+heart! ⁠

(Woah, is this actually real? We are GROWING!)⁠

If any of you keep up with me, you know that I mostly a one-woman show. I absolutely LOVE my couples and have always had a hard time thinking of not being there for them 100000% of the time. But, 2022 has brought more weddings, more inquiries, and more amazing couples into my inbox and I died at the thought of turning so many of them down! AND THEN CAME ALEX! ⁠

How did I know that she was THE ONE for hand+heart couples? ⁠

+ She is an Experience Designer who specializes in using nature as the foundation for most gatherings. She started her own luxury picnic business in 2020 (hello, gutsy pandemic move!) and her professionalism, organization, and design talent is incredible. ⁠

+ Born and raised in California, so she can bring that coastal inspiration and appreciation of the California bounty that our couples love so much! ⁠

+ She is self-described as a bougie bohemian--drawing inspiration from organic textures, patterns, and florals. (Also, bougie bohemian may be my new favorite adjective).⁠

+ Alex is devoted to understanding the vision of her clients and uses this asset to bring a tailored bespoke design to their celebration that is as unique as the couple and their love story. ⁠

DO NOT FRET-- I am still the lead planner and stylist on weddings. Having Alex's eye means that we can execute bigger and more detailed designs on the day-of and that I can still be present for vendors, the couple, and guests. AND, if I am booked for your wedding date, you can still have the hand+heart experience and style with Alex as your go-to gal on the day-of. ⁠

We are so thrilled to have her on our team and cannot wait to introduce her to this amazing family of vendors and couples!⁠

Show her some love below 👋🏼 and give her a follow @thepicnicplug ✨

Wedding tip of the day: Skip the traditional wedding cake! ⁠

As a planner, cutting a cake and serving it to guests is a real time suck. People get antsy. They start moving around, getting up from their seat... you get where I'm going with this. ⁠

As a guest, I don't necessarily want a slice of cake right after I eat. I'd rather do some dancing, some drinking, and then stuff my face with a variety of mini desserts at my own leisure. ⁠

Caterers and bakers have gotten so dang good at mini desserts and are able to accommodate a ton of different preferences and ideas! Get creative with it!⁠
