Yvonne worked with her planner to find seasonal flowers in shades of ivory. They chose heirloom garden roses, freesia, tulips, nerine lilies, and mint, which kept the arrangement smelling minty fresh all night.

Yvonne searched everywhere (it took months!) to find the right shoes. Her criteria: eggplant-colored and comfortable. Finally, she found them -- three-and-a-half-inch sling-back heels.

Yvonne and Alex got married on a big grassy lawn on a hill overlooking Cavallo Point, the Marin headlands, and the Golden Gate Bridge. Two giant trees created the perfect natural altar.

The couple’s planner found antique pressed-tin ceiling panels, which made the perfect vintage background for the escort cards. Tiny magnets held the cards in place.

Each table had a different assortment of flowers. Some had a collection of vintage glass jars filled with bunches and herbs like mint, lavender, freesia, and white nerine lilies. Other centerpieces were more lush arrangements in wooden crates.

Yvonne and Alex decided a traditional French croquembouche (a giant tower of cream puffs with spun sugar and white jordan almonds) fit their wedding theme better than a fondant-covered cake. Instead of a topper, the bakery created an edible nougat card with the couple’s names written in sugar.

Instead of favors, the couple opted for a candy bar of purple-colored sweets displayed in vintage-style apothecary jars. The couple’s planner made a sign that read, “Un Magasin de BonBon,” which means candy shop in French.

Yvonne & Alex in Sausalito, CA

Yvonne met Alex at a birthday party for her roommate’s coworker, who happened to be best friends with Alex. It was December, and Yvonne had just graduated from the University of California at Berkeley. Alex was in his senior year at Stanford. The two hit it off immediately and started a San Francisco-Palo Alto commuting relationship that lasted about a year -- they broke up when Alex moved to Japan to teach English. After two years in Japan, Alex relocated to San Francisco for law school. He and Yvonne saw each other occasionally, but things were strictly platonic. About a year later, Alex invited Yvonne to Tahoe for a ski weekend with a group of people and the trip rekindled their romance. The Bride Yvonne Sung, 29, an advertising/media supervisior The Groom Alex Kingsley, 29, a lawyer The Date August 29 The following Thanksgiving, while the two were in Dallas celebrating with Yvonne’s family, Alex popped the question. They spent the first year of their two-year engagement enjoying their status before starting to plan. As a nod to their Francophile ways (and Alex’s half-French heritage), they came up with a Parisian vintage theme.
