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.

Vintage Glamour at Park Winters

Park Winters uses the tag line “Simple Country Luxury" to describe their venue, which we feel does a perfect job! Park Winters is a boutique event facility located in Winters, California. We used the florals of this beautiful wedding to enhance the vintage vibes it had. For the bride’s bouquet, we arranged a textured loose bouquet using off whites roses, pops of wine marsela and burgundy amnesia, an accent of black scabiosa, and lots of added greenery. The bridesmaid bouquets were smaller versions of the brides, with more amnesia roses added in. At the ceremony, we covered our circle altar in burgundy and white florals with lots of greenery. So beautiful and romantic! The aisle was covered in white and blush rose petals. For the seating chart of the reception, we placed a smilax across the top of the chart. At each table, we placed a piece of olive garnishment in the napkins. The centerpieces were textured arrangements that matched the bouquets, sitting in a beautiful gold dish. The head table had a long fresh eucalyptus garland with wine and off white florals tucked in. Overall, this wedding was absolutely astonishing, and we are so grateful to have been a part of it!

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.
