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.

Soft Elegance at Las Positas Vineyards

A romantic evening in the Livermore Vineyards. Las Positas Vineyards is a spectacular winery surrounded by beautiful hills, providing a perfect intimate wedding venue. This wedding was soft, elegant, and romantic, with a warm and cozy feel. On the welcome sign, we placed a fresh eucalyptus garland with florals tucked in. Our bride’s bouquet was arranged loosely with a variety of florals to give a textured bouquet style. We used using white and blush pink roses, baby's breath, ranunculas, and dahlias. The bridesmaid bouquets were smaller versions of the bride’s, using all the same florals, in a less dramatic arrangement. At the altar, we had two barrel arrangements consisting of roses, hydrangeas, and dahlias. On the pews, we arranged mason jar arrangements full of soft blush roses and hints of greenery.

Simplistic Romance at The Palm Event Center

This beautiful wedding was held at two locations. The traditional ceremony was held at the Saint Ignatius Church in San Francisco, California. For the reception, we moved over to the Palm Event Center located in Pleasanton, California. Our bridge envisioned a simple wedding, that still overwhelmed you with the feeling of romance. For her bouquet, we arranged a clean and controlled arrangement that had no greenery, using whites and super blush pink florals. The bridesmaids bouquets were similar to the bride’s, however they had added in greenery. The groom’s boutonniere was an off white tea rose with ruscus, while the groomsmen had a blush pink tea rose with ruscus. The centerpieces of the reception were candle lit lanterns surrounded by a fresh eucalyptus garland. Lastly, at the sweetheart table, we placed two cocktail arrangements as well as a vase to hold the bride’s bouquet.
