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.
