We love it when a wedding reception goes “just right.” A picturesque setting, joyous party and happy couple — Lindsay and Curt’s post-nuptial affair had it all.

The James Leary Flood Mansion has to be one of our favorite locations for a wedding. The historic building’s gorgeous architecture is rivaled only by the scenic views it offers. The venue was filled by Standard Party Rentals, studded with floral by Amanda Vidmar Designs and lit by Impact.

Ruby & Rose coordinated the wedding, which progressed from a ceremony at St. Ignacious Parish. Sunlight flooded the mansion in the afternoon, highlighting a color palette of white, ivory and gold with rich pops of color.

The evening kicked off with an outdoor cocktail hour. Guests enjoyed Lindsay’s signature cocktail, the grapefruit-forward “Pink Salty Dog,” alongside a Hog Island oyster bar. We tray-passed bites like Beef and Shiitake Bulgogi Sliders and a fresh, local Dungeness Crab and Bay Shrimp Cake.

Inside, an assortment of uniquely dressed tables added a subtle element of complexity to the design — a variety of arrangements with luscious fauna tied the tables together nicely.

Dinner service started at 6 p.m., starring a classically paired Grilled Filet Mignon with Black Truffle Butter and Roasted White Sea Bass with Half Moon Bay Brussels Sprouts. After speeches over dinner, the party moved into the ballroom for dancing and dessert.

The final touch was arguably the most charming. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, the couple asked for an inventive way to serve their favorite treat: Dynamo Donuts. Our event designer set up a hanging donut wall display with some of their favorite flavors, like Caramel de Sel and Hazelnut Chocolate Lavender. We paired the doughy goodness with spiked milkshakes, like an extra creamy blended White Russian and a vanilla-cherry Manhattan concoction.

Thank you to Anna Delores Photography for capturing the day beautifully, and to Kindred Weddings for the video below. And thank you to Lindsay and Curt for allowing us to be a part of your special day! All the best to you both!
