Get to know… Lindsay Jernegan of Frances Lane

This month we have the  pleasure of chatting with our friend Lindsay Jernegan of Frances Lane.  Lindsay is in the business of making all things pretty, especially when it comes to tabletop decor.  Our latest collab with Lindsay was at The Lab Event in San Francisco, and we are anxiously awaiting the day we’re able to work with her next!

Q: At which venue are you dying to work?

A: I’m so in love with the vibe at Dawn Ranch. It’s basically the California version of where Bobby & I got married, so it goes without saying I’d love to work there.

It’s called Porcini and serves up amazing, fresh, local food & craft beer, and it’s nestled smack dab between the ocean, the 101 and some giant redwood forests in way, way NorCal.)

Q: What’s your favorite restaurant in the Bay Area?

A: Piccino! I mean, there are so many, but this one is hands down the winner. Bobby & I always, always sit at the Chef’s table. Best seat in any restaurant for us.

Q: What do you love most about working with the Stacy McCain Event Planning team?

A: Stacy and her team are crazy organized (that gets you everywhere, in my book) and truly great collaborators. Good energy, creative ideas, and just super fun to be around which makes work feel, well, not like work at all!
