From Gena ~ Ryan and I love art deco design and were inspired by the classic and clean lines of the Bentley Reserve building, which we chose as the venue for our wedding. In keeping with this simple, yet elegant design, we chose silver, white and black as our color scheme.

I love calla lilies and our florist, Laura Little from Floramor, showed me a picture of white and black calla lilies in bullet vases. I thought it was beautiful and chose it to be the centerpiece for the dinner tables.

The planning process was somewhat stressful because of all the decisions Ryan and I had to make and anxiety about whether everything would come together. Amy Nichols helped so much by keeping us on track, and coordinating between our different vendors.

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, thanks to Amy. It was the best day of our lives.

Gena’s stunning gown was designed by Jin Wang in San Francisco. Bridesmaids’ dresses were from the Dessy Collection.

What an absolutely gorgeous wedding celebration! Congratulations to Gena and Ryan and a big, big thank-you to Julie Mikos, Amy Nichols for sharing!
