JESSICA

Jessica’s career in luxury hotels and fine catering spans world-class destinations on both coasts: New York City and California’s Wine Country.  Her degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management prepared her for high-level positions at the Waldorf=Astoria, Le Parker Meridien and Conrad (Hilton) hotel companies while in New York.  Her specialty became managing events for a range of clientele including international dignitaries, celebrities and Fortune 500 companies.

California’s wine and world-class cuisine soon lured Jessica to Napa Valley where she spent six years as Event Manager at Auberge du Soleil, a premier luxury resort and award-winning restaurant.  Her focus was on executing corporate events and VIP hotel room blocks for financial, pharmaceutical, technology, and retail companies.

Jessica is now bringing her vast experience in client service, attention to detail and hotel operations to the clients at Favor. Not surprisingly, she loves checking out new restaurants and visiting her favorite wineries around the Bay Area!

Suzy is the owner of Suzy Berberian Weddings & Events and has designed and coordinated hundreds of very special events throughout Northern California, working with luxury hotels, wineries, restaurants and private estates. It is in the course of these events that she developed and perfected her gifting artistry. She is valued by clients and suppliers alike for her carefully planned logistics, strong knowledge of local vendors and venues, and her cheerful, calm demeanor on hectic event days.

Previously, Suzy was Wedding Manager at Auberge du Soleil, where she mastered her own billions of details. She came to Wine Country from San Francisco’s PIER 39, one of the nation’s busiest visitor venues, where she managed VIP hospitality, large-scale public events, and media events.

Suzy adores living in Sonoma County and you can often find her – with her husband and two daughters – camping at the beach, exploring San Francisco and enjoying the beautiful California weather.

    Favor produced 500+ gift bags for the World Champion Denver Broncos during the Bay Area’s Super Bowl 50! We absolutely loved teaming up with the Broncos during such an exciting time here in the San Francisco Bay Area. They shipped us thousands of items, and we unwrapped, un-stickered, folded, rolled and packed the bags over a three-day period in our production studio. 

    We also helped differentiate and organize three types of phone cases so guests were sure to get the right size!  

    The bags were delivered to the Broncos’s VIP and sponsor party at Ruby Skye in downtown San Francisco, where the guests (including John Elway!) partied the night away and took home these amazingly fun swag bags at the end of the night.  

    Huge thanks to the Denver Broncos and team at Ruby Skye for their help on a fantastic project!

    We’re in the midst of the four-day SF Market trade show at Moscone Center in San Francisco, and we’re finding a ton of great gift inspiration and products! This is a huge show - formerly named the San Francisco International Gift Fair -with hundreds of makers and manufacturers for professional wholesalers of gift items. We found a ton of great stuff and wanted to share our top picks with you all!  

    Spicer Bags (www.spicerbags.com): we LOVE their line of cork bags, and know we’ll be doing some branded & logoed versions very soon. These would make perfect bridesmaid gifts.

    CHART Metalworks (www.chartmetalworks.com): You pick your location and they will customize a number of beautiful items. Our incentive and reward travel clients will love these. Our favorite, of course, is the wine stopper!

    Le Bon Garcon (www.lebongarcon.com): These hand-crafted French-styled caramels are elegant and delicious, more tender and soft than the typical super-chewy caramel. We especially love their fun modern packaging which will look fantastic in wedding welcome bags and baskets.  

    Brooklyn Slate Company (www.brooklynslate.com): Gorgeous pieces of slate from their family slate quarry make beautiful cheese boards, coasters and trivets. They’ve recently introduced these hand thrown ceramic tumblers dotted with specks of black slate.

    Stay tuned for more as we continue finding great gifts and candy this weekend!

    Just as you incorporate your wedding invitations and stationery into the overall design of the wedding, do the same with your wedding gifts!  We love collaborating with clients and planners for months before the wedding, diving into the design plans, idea boards and color palettes.  Your wedding welcome gifts and favors can be integrated into the wedding with coordinating stationery (maps and welcome notes), personalized items like the ceramic limoncello cordial glasses above, and fresh organic elements from your florist.  

    For this beautiful fall wedding designed by Scott Corridan Design, we worked to tie in every element of the welcome box to the feel and look of the wedding weekend.  These stunning boxes awaited 150 guests in their hotel rooms, and were the kick-off to an amazing weekend.  The event caterer, Paula LeDuc Fine Catering, provided handmade limoncello, and we assembled Wine Country’s best goodies like Fatted Calf charcuterie, Sonoma Cheese Factory jack cheese, Rustic Bakery flatbread and the bride’s favorite - cookies from Annie the Baker!

    The centerpiece of the wedding was that gorgeous gown by Vera Wang, the bride was stunning in blue and our welcome boxes picked up the blue tone throughout, on the cordial glasses, labeling and stationery.  A true collaboration, and so much fun to surprise and delight the bride, groom and all of their guests!

SAVVY GIFTING GALS

“Service is key,” declares Suzy Berberian, who recently launched Favor Custom Gifts with business partner Jessica Berry. Both have hotel and luxury hospitality experience and have already had some serious success with landing local clients like Cole Drake and A X Events. They focus on filling wedding welcome bags, favors and corporate gifts with local favorites such as Sift Dessert Bar, Krave Jerky and specialty goods from the girl & the fig.

Their most popular product thus far? It’s a tie between “Get Excited” (a package for out-of-town guests attending a destination wedding in Wine Country) and the “Hangover Kit.”

NATURAL INSPIRED VINEYARD WEDDING

Colin Cowie Weddings featured the custom bags created by Favor that welcomed guests to Troy and Kari’s beautiful Wine Country wedding. Favor collaborated with the couple’s graphic designer to imprint their logo on the bag and paper goods, and included favorite treats from near and far. Chocolate chip macadamia cookies were imported from The Honolulu Cookie Company in honor of the bride’s time spent living there. And last, but certainly not least, Favor’s Recovery Kit came to the guests’ rescue with orange juice, painkiller, ginger chews, chewing gum and mints. All in all, the perfect elegant, practical and fun welcome gift!
