Bently Reserve

301 Battery Street, Financial District, San Francisco, California

As a longstanding event industry insider, I have been lucky enough to know bada** lady bosses Paige Appel and Kelly Harris of Bash Please for almost a decade. I'll never forget the very first Cream event they threw many moons ago and I have since watched it grow to epic proportions where the 'cream of the crop' gather in the event industry. Yes, The CREAM is a curated experiential event, showcasing the most innovative and creative people working in weddings . In fact, The Venue Report has even been lucky enough to have been invited to be a part of The CREAM in the past. 

How did these girl bosses come up with the idea? Paige Appel and Kelly Harris of event design sensation, Bash Please, founded the CREAM event in 2010 after seeing a void in the wedding market. They wanted to take the traditional ballroom wedding fair and turn it into a fun party where vendors could think outside the standard 8x8 box. They knew vendors and couples alike were seeking a curated wedding showcase highlighting the raddest people in the industry - gone are the days of bland ballroom fairs. #GENIUS

Now, four cities and nine events later they have created one of the most annually anticipated wedding events in the United States. If you missed the most recent Los Angeles CREAM event a few weeks ago, fear not friends - they are hosting another one on April 30th in San Franciscol! BUY TIX HERE! 




The next event is going to be here:
