If You Are Going to San Francisco… Sherri and Zenon’s Joyful Wedding Celebration

Sherri and Zenon had already spent a whole decade of their lives together when they took the plunge – to plan and get married! One thing was clear: it had to be something special. Really special! A destination wedding… and what would it be? “If you are going to San Francisco, be sure to wear – flowers in your hair…” That was it. San Francisco. Quite a distance from their “home base” in Canada! And since that was so, they needed a coordinator to help them plan it all from afar – and that honor fell to my company, A Day Like No Other!  We started planning at the beginning of the year, and yesterday all our efforts were rewarded with a beautiful, memorable wedding celebration at the historic General’s Residence at Fort Mason.

For our bride, the day began with a beauty session at the Omni Hotel: Marine Vaisset of Belle by Marine enhanced Sherri’s beautiful features, her milk-white skin and reddish-blonde hair, into an ethereal, classical style – and into a radiant bride! And of course, she “made sure to wear – flowers in her hair…”


Here is Sherri’s impressive all-red bouquet by Tutti Fiori:


Final touches…


Sherri had chosen a dramatic silk dress with delicate lace appliqué and a regal train:

… with a good fifty friends and family members in attendance, all of whom had come all the way from Canada; and officiated by Rev. John Sullivan. And here comes the bride, escorted by her proud Dad:

“I do!”


“…. and pronounce you – husband and wife!”

A golden evening glow over the Bay turned the scene outerworldly beautiful…

… while guests enjoyed cocktails and, soon enough, a plated, French inspired dinner by La Bonne Cuisine, accompanied by soft music provided by Love in the Mix.

Every detail contributed to the elegance and glamour of the evening, from the mantelpiece decor…


… to the display of wedding favors (fragrant artisanal soaps)
