Ritzy at The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco

There couldn't be a more magnificent place to say I do than The Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, a sophisticated urban retreat, with a romantic courtyard ceremony site and stylish indoor ballroom for the reception, there's no doubt that it's a perfect place for a city wedding.

Danielle and Micheal's wedding was classic elegance with soft romantic colors of lilac, blush pink and white. Danielle's timeless bouquet with roses, peonies, stephanotis and gardenias was simply perfect with her crystal beaded gown. Her lovely bridesmaids wore soft lilac dresses and carried rounded bouquets of white with accents of blush pink garden roses. Micheal and his groomsmen kept it traditional with black tuxedos and wore ivory tea rose boutonnieres.

The ceremony was held in the tented courtyard under the crystal chandelier. the ceremony space was elegantly decorated with ivory pedestals in different heights holding large hourglass vases with rounded floral arrangements in whites, ivory and blush pinks. The aisle was adorned with a scroll pattern of white and blush rose petals along both sides with hanging jars floral arrangements on every other chair. The reception held in the ballroom was truly a fun party, yet elegant and sophisticated. Both low footed dish and tall hourglass arrangements around the room, with whites and blush pinks. The sweetheart table was overflowing with orchids spilling over the front, silver candelabras and tea lights.

Illuminated Love

The bride and groom wanting a soft and elegant theme, chose the perfect summer day to say I do at The Boundary Oaks Golf Course in Walnut Creek, CA. The bride's bouquet was lush with romantic blooms of peonies, roses, tea roses and stock. The groom's boutonniere was simple with off white tea roses, a sprig of seeded eucalyptus and dusty miller. The bridesmaid's attire of dusty rose went flawlessly with the soft and elegant theme.

The ceremony was stunning with an altar spray of hydrangea, roses and tea roses, while glass jars hung from the aisle chairs with matching blooms. The indoor reception was pretty and romantic with low lush centerpieces of hydrangea and roses, the adorable sweet heart table re-purposed the altar spray as a floor piece.
