Love For Fall: Fêtes!

Another favorite fall activity, naturally, is parties! I love a summer wedding or party, but you always have that concern that it might be too hot, your guests will get sunburned, etc. Fall parties are usually still sunny, crisp and cozy…who doesn’t love that combination?!

A fête perfect for fall, and the last day of our Love For Fall week (!), is our feature from Style Me Pretty today. I designed and styled this shoot and looking at it again makes me want to bundle up and go on a crisp fall stroll (or gondola ride!) with the one I love.

How dreamy is Erich McVey Photography‘s work? He works solely in film now, and it’s just breathtaking. Don’t these images make you want to visit Oakland so badly? There is so much beauty tucked in all around Lake Merritt, makes me so proud to live here!

I designed the sweetheart table with the same feel that Lake Merritt has, which is local, but also definitely has a grand European feel to it as well.

Undoubtedly of my favorite elements of this shoot was the venue. Lake Chalet is one of my favorite restaurants and I had dreamed of it being used as a wedding venue. The dock with the Oakland view is so perfect for a couple that wants a little glam (from the venue) but still wants to be in the city.

This was such an amazing group of people to work with, please find them below in the vendors list and hire them! Special thanks to Paige and Ian for being stunning models and such a pleasure to work with!

I could keep going with all of these amazing images, but please hop on over to Style Me Pretty and see the full gallery for even more Oakland love!
