Ask The Expert

Angel Island is a unique location steeped in history. It is a perfect venue for a couple who wants to have an incredible celebration that is a bit off the beaten path. The venue itself is over two miles long and has many interesting elements that you can incorporate in different thematic events.
As you consider your design concept, plan to keep your table decor simple. An eclectic mix of vintage containers with single stems would be both easy to transport and lovely in the environment. A vintage typewriter with custom stationary will give your guests a great place to tell their story and sign in as a guest. Angel Island is so unique and the views are unparalleled. Your guests will enjoy the venue, but in order to make the celebration noteworthy, pay attention to the details.
Blankets are a perfect choice to keep your guests warm as the fog rolls in over the Golden Gate Bridge. Request that your catering company set up a hot cocoa bar, using a fun I LUV U or a monogrammed stencil on top of your whipped cream. Even think of those that get seasick and provide some Dramamine in cute bags...hope they won't have to use them!
