This gorgeous venue, The University Club of San Francisco, is beyond amazing, and is the perfect – PERFECT – inspiration for a gorgeous Old Hollywood wedding. Just ask Stellina Events. As soon as she stepped into The Club, she was instantly taken to a different era. One of vintage romance, old leather books, and martinis. And the most perfect soiree, of course, in the form of a wedding. So a wedding she created, complete with two vintage brides and one gorgeous cake. Captured by Bliss Fotography, the entire shoot is filled with wonder and magic, and about a million fantastic ideas for your own gorgeous affair. When you’re ready for them all, make sure to peek into the gallery!
From Stellina Events … Our inspiration for this photo shoot was Old Hollywood in San Francisco. Walking through the halls of The University Club, one can’t help but be reminded of its creation and establishment in 1890 and wonder about the voices and stories that were told throughout the decades. If only these walls could talk…
We imagined the days of the silver screen era of Hollywood creating an elegant and glamorous ambiance while adding contemporary touches and vibrant color.
The color scheme was based on shades of eggplant, dark plum, sage, espresso and white.
We wanted to integrate local and seasonal flowers and vegetables within the décor based on inspiration from the natural Northern California surroundings. Floral arrangements set in silver vases and cups were filled with eggplant calla lilies, plum dahlias, deep purple berries, white berries, sugared grapes, white lisianthus, artichokes and cabbages. Alongside the flowers we placed tapered antique European candlestick holders from Krakow, Poland while antique leather-bound books from the library were added as details throughout the room.
