On December 15, 1909 the Palace Hotel re-opened its doors, completely rebuilt after the devastation of the April 18, 1906 great quake of San Francisco. Since its 1909 reopening, the Palace Hotel has remained the Grand Dame of historic San Francisco hotels, sharing its many treasures with the loyal citizens of San Francisco and visitors from around the world.

Since I was already in the city, and had responsibly taken public transportation to get there, I decided to meet Colson at his next stop of the day, Batter’s Bridal Boutique. Jen Musty of Batter was hosting an event in her pop up shop at 555 California. Partnering with Heritage & Craft for vintage furniture and decor, Floral Theory and Colson Griffith Photography, she created a confection wonderland. Whoever thought of putting cupcakes in the sections of a desk! Brilliant and yummy ~ that is this wedding planner’s professional opinion of Jen & Batter!
