Black Tie Elegance at The University Club of San Francisco

The University o Club of San Francisco is an elegant historic clubhouse atop Nob Hill, a location known for holding the city's culture and classy events. Our bride’s wedding was a traditional formal black tie affair that embodied elegance. For the bride’s bouquet, we arranged roses, gardenias, and hydrangeas, with hints white phelo orchids cascading down. The groom’s boutonniere was a unique white phelo orchid paired with ruscus. For the flower girl, we arranged a small nosegay of white roses as well as an adorable princess crown. At the ceremony, you are greeted by large white floral arrangements at the head of the altar. Down the sides of the aisle, we laid soft white rose petals. For the pews, we placed trio’s of cylinder vases with floating candles which really set the romantic mood for the ceremony. Half of the centerpieces at the reception were rounded textured arrangements that sat in hourglass vase, arranged using hydrangea, roses, tea roses and no greenery. The other centerpieces were full and formal low lush arrangements in gold footed dishes that were made to match the taller arrangements, however we added in ranunculas to give it a slight contrast. At the sweetheart table, we placed a long and low arrangement with orchids spilling over the front of the table. Lastly, we topped the cake with fresh bridal blooms.

Classic Elegance at Ruby Hill Winery

A love so strong it radiates throughout the room. This beautiful wedding design was inspired by the passionate love shared between our bride and groom. Ruby Hill Winery in Pleasanton, California, is a beautiful venue with endless possibilities of design. Our bride envisioned a classic wedding that embodied elegance and love. For the bride’s bouquet, we arranged a soft, romantic, controlled pairing of stock, callas, and roses, ranging from white, off white, and blush pink. The bridesmaids had a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet, using the same bridal blooms. At the beginning of the altar, we had two large arrangements that sat in a fancy white urn. The first, middle, and last pews had mason jar arrangements filled with white and blush florals with greenery dripping out. The TFH wood altar had a whimsical altar spray placed on the top which was absolutely stunning. Inside the reception, we decorated the staircase with a fresh floral garland. The centerpieces were textured low lush arrangements using the same bridal blooms as the other pieces. Lastly, we topped the cake with small blush and peach roses, and surrounded the cake with blush rose petals. A gorgeous finishing touch!

Winter Wonderland at The Olympic Club

This December wedding had cohesive hues of elegance, romance, and uniqueness throughout every last detail. This gorgeous affair was held at The Olympic Club located in San Francisco, California. For the bride’s bouquet, we arranged a cascading style arrangement of white roses, scabiosa, ranunculus, with pops of red wine throughout. The bridesmaids had smaller versions of the brides bouquet, without a cascade. The groom’s boutonniere was a white single calla lilly with hints of evergreen. At the altar, we had tall textured arrangements with dripping greenery, using the same flowers as the bouquets. At the reception, we arranged low lush centerpieces with lots of movement that sat in elegant gold footed dishes. These were made using scabiosa, ranunculus, and roses. Tucked into each napkain was a holiday greenery garnishment. Lastly, on one of the cakes, we cascaded white and wine roses down the front.
