Charming in Paige!

1950's Inspired Vintage Wedding Dress.

Liz, our fantastic and fashion-forward bride, said "I do" in our 1950's inspired Paige gown. Liz completed her retro-chic look with the perfect pair of peep-toes and a string of gorgeous pearls. Set in a romantically rustic location, her wedding was the ultimate vintage inspired fete.

The 2011 Collection, In Amy's Words

Amy Kuschel Juniper

For our 2011 Collection, I was inspired by San Francisco, this great city that we call home.

I tapped into vintage and modern aspects of San Francisco's architecture and history.      A city that is complex and layered, indulgent yet compassionate.  She's sophisticated and contemporary, romantic and balanced. The heart of our 2011 collection is filled with San Francisco

Let Them Eat Cake

On Saturday February 6th local pastry artist Stephanie Masquelier, founder of Flours, will be hosting a cake tasting in our San Francisco salon.

Stephanie’s cakes are delicious, and beautifully executed. We think her original flavors, like "Nutty"- Maple & Walnut and " Tropical" - Pineapple & Coconut are irresistible, and she can customize a flavor to satisfy your wedding day sweet tooth.

Stop by to meet Stephanie, and enjoy a confectionery treat or two!
