Liz and Jake decided to celebrate their wedding at the James Leary Flood Mansion in San Francisco. "This city has been such a huge part of our lives, and we couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else," says Liz. The bride donned a "timeless" Monique Lhuillier gown. "The lace details, tulle skirt, and sheer neckline were perfect for our winter wedding," Liz says. She accessorized with a fur shrug that she found on Etsy.com.
The reception kicked off with cocktail hour in the mansion's courtyard, where a lounge area was set up inside a clear tent. Dinner was served in the main hall, where centerpieces of tulips, hydrangeas, and ferns decorated the tables. All florals and furnishings were by Kathleen Deery Design, and the couple worked with Alison Events on the wedding details. "I've always wanted a classic, elegant wedding, but I didn't want the environment to feel too formal or overdone," says Liz.
