A City Club Wedding Soiree – All You Need is LOVE

CHEERS to the newly engaged! The City Club rolled out the red carpet last Friday evening for a Wedding Soiree! Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a glass of bubbly from a glamorous Champagne Skirt. The soothing voices of Bobby Jo Valentine and Vintage Jukebox set the mood!

Guests enjoyed an array of hors d’oeuvres, sample entree selections, and his & hers signature cocktails from The City Club of San Francisco. The dining rooms were decked out head to toe with floral creations by Paul Robertson and custom pastel votives by Glassybaby.

Our Bridal Suite featured stunning bridal gowns from Marina Morrison, make up touch ups and goody bags by Benefit Cosmetics, and a fun selection of jewels and bridesmaids gifts from Stella & Dot.

Next to the bridal suite, a Groom’s Lounge was dressed to impress with a whiskey tasting and a cigar roller. Yes, the grooms had fun too!

Brides, grooms, and their entourage enjoyed an evening of everything wedding!

A very special thank you to all of our fabulous vendors and participants who made this event a success!

Max’s “March Madness” Bar Mitzvah

We say it all the time – we LOVE a good party and we especially love a good party with a great theme done right!

A recent Bar Mitzvah that was held at The City Club took “March Madness” to a whole new level! We loved everything about Max’s basketball-themed celebration, from the cake to the yarmulkes and every detail in between. We’re partial to the love for the Golden State Warriors, but really, everything about this fun event brought out the hoops fans in all of us.

Those yarmulkes are amazing, aren’t they?! The guests all looked fantastic!

Congratulations, Max! We hope you and your family and friends had the best time celebrating your special day.

Happy March Madness! Wishing you a weekend full of bracket busters and exciting upsets!

It’s not too late to participate! Now though December 19th we will be collecting toys on the 10th Floor of the Club – look for the toy barrel and join in the fun by bringing in a book, board game, stuffed animal, soccer ball, or whatever your favorite toy is. Ages of recipients: babies to 14 years old.

Thanks to our corporate sponsor Sterling Bank & Trust, and all of our wonderful Members and friends.

Let’s make the holidays shine for as many of our city’s kids as we can!
