Bridal Sign Up

Kendel Qvale & Brian Duford

October 15, 2011 | Cavallo Point, Sausalito

The bride, who wore a Rivini gown from Marina Morrison, and her groom gave donations to the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy as favors.

Hello! Lucky created invites to match the event’s summer-camp vibe and navy-and-poppy palette.

Guests sipped tea with lemon and mint leaves before the ceremony.

The tent’s transparent walls showed off views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Chandeliers made from wagon wheels and Edison light bulbs hung from handmade rope.

Brown Paper Design decorated tables with vases of single varietals for maximum impact.

Festivities took place across the Bay from the couple’s Marina home, at Cavallo Point, an 1800s-era Army fort converted into a resort with soaring views of the San Francisco Bay.

The Details
Alison Events planned a celebration reflective of the duo’s outdoorsy nature, with table numbers named for national parks.

The Party
Historic Mission Blue Chapel was flipped into a dance hall where the movie Indian Summer was projected across a large screen.
