I’m BEYOND excited to announce that Sasha Souza Events has been approved by the San Francisco City Hall Events Office in THREE categories!  We are an approved vendor for wedding planning, event planning, and floral design.  The request for qualifications to be approved and placed on the list was extensive and rigorous, but if you’re getting married at San Francisco City Hall, you must use vendors from the approved list.  To be approved as a San Francisco City Hall Wedding Planner was no easy task and we are so thrilled to be included on this highly exclusive list.

If you’re getting married at San Francisco City Hall and in need of a wedding planner, event planner or floral designer, we would love to have the opportunity to work with you on your amazing event.

Because we are approved as a San Francisco City Hall floral designer we can not only plan your wedding but provide all your floral and decor – which makes the planning of your wedding design so much easier.  Many of our favorite wedding vendors are also included on the other lists so we can create the perfect team for your San Francisco City Hall wedding.

The third category we were approved for is Event Planner.  As a San Francisco City Hall event planner, we can also work on corporate events and other non-wedding events as well!

Destination Wedding Planner: Napa Valley

As a destination wedding planner in Napa Valley, we work with couples from all over the world who are planning weddings in the most beautiful locations.  Whether you choose Napa Valley as your wedding location or you choose a more exotic destination wedding location, we have worked with couples to create their dream weddings.  Being a destination wedding planner in Hawaii is a very different experience from creating a wedding design in Mexico and we work with the couples to create the best guest experience for them.  One that is truly a work of art and one of a kind destination wedding.

Here is an example of being a destination wedding planner for our couples and what their wedding was like:

Suzy & Aleks – Hawaii


A destination wedding can also be a wedding where your guests and family and friends are joining you in our own backyard – Napa & Sonoma weddings are some of the most romantic, fun, laid back weddings but that doesn’t mean that they lack style or sophistication.  In fact, the food and wine experience are typically paramount to everything else.  Check out this “foodie” wedding of Anne & David:

What Makes a Napa Valley Wedding So Special?

Napa Valley Weddings are Quintessential Wine Country

One thing we know is OUR VALLEY…Napa Valley weddings have long been coveted as romantic, outdoor ceremonies followed by gorgeous dinners out amongst the vines featuring delicious food, impeccable service, and 97 point wines.  But Napa Valley weddings often incorporate more than just the wine and the food.  The atmosphere and the environment within Napa Valley are equally important to note.  The sunsets here provide a gorgeous golden light that reflects off Mt. Veeder right at the perfect time.  Blue hour is equally magical with the sky blazing tones from deep ocean blue to blush pink – these colors are perfectly captured by your photographer as the sun just sets over the Mayacama mountain range.

Our weather is spectacular during mid-May to mid-October when the majority of Napa Valley wine country weddings happen.  Even the months of July and August can be mild – we always get a hot weekend but it could be in June just as easily as it could be in July or September so planning your wedding date is really more about WHEN you want to get married rather than trying to avoid a heat-wave.

Do Napa Valley Weddings or Napa Valley Events need to be “in the vines?”

Nope.  Napa Valley weddings take place in all sorts of unique wedding locations.  We have vineyard wedding locations, barrel room wedding venues, Napa resort wedding venues, private estate wedding venues, and even some winery wedding venues.  The location isn’t always easy to select since as Napa Valley wedding planners we are able to choose from so many spectacular wedding venues.  You can check out all the weddings in our Gallery and see a variety of locations to suit your style.

What Inspires The Best San Francisco Bar Mitzvah Planner?

As the best San Francisco Bar Mitzvah planner, Sasha Souza Events has been planning the most stunning events for over twenty years. And, Bar Mitzvahs are the most fun and colorful to create! Let’s find out what inspires us to put these fantastic events together.

How Does The Best San Francisco Bar Mitzvah Planner Start?:

Because Ethan’s family wanted the best San Francisco Bar Mitzvah planner, they called Sasha Souza Events! So, getting to know all of their wants and needs was an important place to start planning and getting inspired.

The Client’s Style:

A good place to start planning is by looking at the client’s style. Ethan wanted the party to be fun for his friends (using games & activities and his love of technology), and his parents wanted an amazing time for the adults (incorporating dancing and great food). So, to make everyone happy, we had to incorporate all of these things. In the end, they gave us the inspiration we needed to make a great event that everyone would enjoy.

The Venue – Terra Gallery in San Francisco:

The perfect venue was next on the list. It had to be in San Francisco, have lots of space for 300 guests, and include a cool, hip vibe for making the party that Ethan’s family would love. So, we chose the Terra Gallery. Therefore, not only did it cover all of our needs, it also was an inspiration for the rest of the planning. As a result, it was the perfect venue.

 The Colors of the Bar Mitzvah:

Ethan’s family wanted to include the traditional blue for the event but also wanted us to make the party feel new and fresh. So, we did both, by adding silver, green and white to complete the color palette. As a result of gathering inspiration, in the beginning, got them what they wanted.

See how we used inspiration from the list above to make this cool event happen:

We also designed Ethan’s sister’s Bat Mitzvah and would love for you to swing on over to the gallery to see more of that event.  It’s so different from Ethan’s Bar Mitzvah, you’ll know why they chose the Best San Francisco Bat Mitzvah Planner for their event.

Best Wine Country Wedding Venues: Charles Krug

When looking at wine country wedding venues, this is one of our all-time favorites!  What we love about Charles Krug is the diversity of the grounds, the location of the site and we love the people and the wine. – oh the wine is delicious!  Charles Krug has the distinction of being one of the only wine country wedding venues and working wineries in Napa Valley where you can have a wine country wedding, including the ceremony.  Here’s a sampling of details about hosting a wedding at Charles Krug:

Ceremony & Reception Sites at Charles Krug:

The grounds are beautiful and appropriate for a ceremony. They do not allow hard alcohol here, but with the addition of the Quattro Vino train from the Wine Train, you can host hard liquor in the train car, which is so much fun!  The historic carriage house boasts both upstairs and downstairs event venues.  Consider having your ceremony on the lawn overlooking the vines followed by your cocktail party on the back lawn or in the lower level with dinner and dancing upstairs.  Swing open the carriage house doors and you will have the most beautiful vista of the vines and valley.

Best wedding vendors:

You can choose from the best wedding vendors in Napa Valley!  For example, with catering, you can choose from an approved list.
Bar: Beer, Wine, & Champagne only

Timing for Weddings at Charles Krug:

While you can’t go late into the night, you do have a lot of privacy at Charles Krug.  Evening events run from 4pm-10pm

You can see from the images below why Charles Krug is at the top of our list of Wine Country Wedding Venues.  You can also mix and match the venues with the Culinary Institute of America as we did for Marc and Lauren’s wedding:
