The classic design by Amy Nichols and the historic reception setting in the San Francisco Ferry Building proved to be the perfect marriage for this gorgeous San Francisco summer affair. All of the crisp, clean details – captured beautifully by Julie Mikos Photography – just scream timeless. And really, what’s better than that?

From the talented Amy Nichols – I am so thrilled to share John and Taylor’s wedding with Style Me Pretty’s readers! I couldn’t ask for more ideal and lovely clients. We started working together a year before the wedding — picking the perfect venues for their ceremony and reception. I loved getting to know them and their parents, and their story was such a cute one. They had met and been friends at Stanford for years before dating. Taylor’s sisters kept asking her why she wasn’t dating John, and soon enough, they were! Both John and Taylor’s families were not from the Bay Area, so this wedding was very much a destination wedding for the majority of their wedding guests. We designed custom save-the-dates from Union Street Papery featuring San Francisco icons and places that were important to them. These icons were then again used on the escort cards and wedding programs.
The wedding reception was at the historic and beautiful Ferry Building in San Francisco, and it was catered by Paula Le Duc Fine Catering. The color palette we chose featured cool blues, purple, green and white. I suggested that we do unique (but all white) bouquets for each bridesmaid — so one bridesmaid had all tulips, one had all ranunculus, and so on. I love the monochromatic clusters of vases for the centerpieces from Lidia Sadoun of La Fleuriste. Each table was a little different from the next! The entire evening was photographed beautifully by the very talented Julie Mikos.
