Beyond Blu Bungalow, San Francisco Venue Tours

This weekend, I had a chance to participate in a venue tour around San Francisco.   Organized by Blu Bungalow, a group of vendors came together to provide a rich experience for brides-to-be, moms, friends and wedding planners, touring six venues around the city.  Andrea of Coquette Events was the lead planner and host for the tour where she provided insights on each venue, designed the beautiful tablescape for our fabulous lunch and helped make this tour a success!  There is a TON of content in this post so be prepared to be inundated with vendor info + images but I promise it’ll be worth it.  Read on!

The ladies met at Blu Bungalow for breakfast, mimosas and an opportunity to get dolled up before we take on the city. Make up by Nicole from Blush and Elizabeth from Skyla Arts.  A blue carpet is rolled out for our guests to board a luxury bus, transportation provided by Pure Luxury.

First venue:  One Leidesdorff in the Financial District.  We are greeted by the Director of Events, Linda Hylen, who showed us the next 3 properties within walking distances of one another.

Second venue:  Merchants Exchange Club.  While this venue has been around for over 100 years, the Merchants Exchange Club has now opened its doors to host wedding events beginning this year.  It’s a gorgeous underground space that is reminiscent of an old world speakeasy from the prohibition era.  With gorgeous original artwork and murals, the Merchants Exchange Club is really an underground gem.

Third Venue:  Julia Morgan Ballroom.  Located on the 15th floor of the Merchants Exchange Building, Julia Morgan Ballroom is an architectural Beaux Arts masterpiece with historical details and the venue is old world romantic.  This is where we had a luncheon and learned more about the wedding reception process, from the tablescape, florals, stationary to catering, no detail was overlooked.  We had an amazing lunch catered by Elaine Bell and we even got to meet her.  Over 30 years of experience in the industry and based in Napa, Elaine Bell is a true inspiration of someone who loves what she does and has proven excellent.  From small intimate dinners to +2,000 guests events, Elaine Bell Catering can do it all.    Tablescape design by Coquette Events, rentals provided by Classic Party Rentals.  Florals by Fig and Twine, Letterpress Menu by Reb Peters, Catering by Elaine Bell Catering.  Our lunch culminated with a tour of the kitchen at Julia Morgan.  Linda Hylen was an excellent host!

Fourth venue:  The Galleria at the San Francisco Design Center, located in San Francisco’s hip design district.   Julia Wagner, event manager at the Galleria gave us a tour of the huge space.  Here, Spintronix provided music and showcased their MC’ing skills!  Guests learned the importance of mood lighting and how great MC and DJ’s can help set the mood of the party.  Very important!  The ladies left the Galleria with fun swag bags that included the new Style Me Pretty Book.  

Fifth Venue:  Bluxome Street Winery.  This was one of my favorite venues.  A modern space with hints of rustic blends the Napa Valley feel right into the city.

“It’s a little known fact that California winemaking started not in Napa or Sonoma, but right here in San Francisco—SOMA, to be exact.”  Bluxome Street Winery

This was the perfect venue to sip on wine to enhance our cake tasting experience.  Cake provided by The Whole Cake and Vintage Furniture/Decor provided by One True Love Vintage Rentals.  We even did an improptu photoshoot (by yours truly) for the ladies that were interested in getting a headshot.  Fun times!

Last venue:  Flood Mansion.  GORGEOUS!  We were greeted by Helen Wu, Rental Coordinator at Flood Mansion, where she gave us a comprehensive walkthrough of this historic building.  As we entered the courtyard, Entire Productions performed stunning string music from Mozart, Schubert to Beethoven,  filling our ears with classical melodies and enriching the experience.  The mansion’s architecture reflected the sounds so well that music traveled throughout the entire building.   Lighting, also provided by Entire Productions, helped set the romantic and dramatic tone of the space.   This venue was by far one of the most breathtaking spaces from all the venues toured.  As you step into the main hall, there is a set of windows that you gravitate to.  As you walk towards the window, you’re swept away from the expansive views of the San Francisco Bay.  The architecture and views are truly majestic.  Winning combination!

Finally as the tour winds down, all the guests end up back at Blu Bungalow for some wine and cheese, followed by a mini spa experience.  Faces by Liliana Mobile Spa set up a table for guests to receive a quick massage to help decompress from a jam packed day of touring venues.  I even got a neck massage and it was sooo needed after a long day of shooting.

    п»їJohn Collins’ PE Bible Review
    One of the most important organs of any man is penis. Unfortunately, many men are not satisfied with the length or width of their penis. Today, there are many lotions, pills and miracle products that claim to increase the size of manhood overnight. However, most of these products fail to deliver the intended results but instead they put the “little buddy” in lots of pain. Fortunately, there is a program referred to as Penis Enlargement Bible that contains natural techniques to enlarge your penis within duration of less than 60 days.
    This is my Penis Enlargement Bible review that will share eye-popping facts about how the content of the program will help you enlarge your penis and create confidence when making love with your girlfriend or partner.
    What is Penis Enlargement Bible?
    Penis Enlargement Bible is a program created by John Collins who is a professional sex educator. It is a 94-page eBook that contains proven techniques and methods to increase penis girth and length for less endowed men. Penis size is undoubtedly a sensitive topic that many men tend to avoid but that is precisely the reason why the program was created. The PE bible program promises to naturally increase the size of the penis between 1 and 4 inches without the use of harmful drugs, extenders or dangerous surgeries.
    PE bible is basically based on John Collins experience and its today considered the most popular penis enlargement program. It has been created as a natural alternative for men who are desperate to enlarge their penis, boost self-confidence and improve performance in bed. With this program you will be able to attain a penis that is stronger, longer and powerful.
    Content of Penis Enlargement Bible
    Since the PE bible by John Collins is copyrighted, my penis enlargement bible review will not go too deep and reveal all the information provided therein. However, the book has been demarcated into chapters and sections that clearly explain all the natural information about penis enlargement through natural diet and exercises.
    Firstly, the PE bible explains that the human penis is anatomically made out of 3 blood chambers. Research indicates that the three chambers play a crucial role in erection. This is because the amount of blood stored in the 3 chambers determines the length and girth of the penis during an erection. The three chambers are the fundamentals if you intend to naturally have a bigger and strong penis .
    The third chapter discusses in detail the problem of premature ejaculation. This chapter explains the causes of premature ejaculation and how to avoid it. Chapter four explains how to increase the volume of semen. Using the tips provided within the chapter, John Collins indicates that it will be possible to increase the amount of semen and the distance you can shoot.
    In chapter five, Collins provides a list of natural herbs that supply the body with natural nutrients needed for penile growth. What makes this chapter so interesting is that each herb is individually explained along with its nutrition content and health benefits. Chapter six provides detailed information on healthy supplements which will facilitate penile growth. Lastly, chapter seven contains supporting tables of reference where you can obtain more information on penile growth.
    Does it work?
    Penis Enlargement Bible is an effective program that facilitates penis enlargement. This is because the entire process of penis enlargement is based on mechanical and biochemical factors. The biochemical process explained in the book involves various techniques and methods that retrigger the physiological condition for the growth of penis while the mechanical process entails hand workouts and exercises that stimulate penis enlargement.
    Pros of Penis Enlargement Bible
    Since the techniques are natural, the obtained results are permanent
    The natural techniques provided by PE bible help to increase the penis size and overall sex life. This is because by using the program you will be able to gain more control over your ejaculation, erectile dysfunctions and eventually increase your stamina
    With the program, you will be able to increase the length and girth of your penis
    The penis enlargement methods and techniques are biological and natural. There are no side effects
