Whimsical

From Charmed Events GroupJenny and Ansony met and fell in love in the city of San Francisco and they wanted to have a wedding that reflected their love story. They chose the City View Metreon as their venue as it has sweeping views of the city and was the perfect modern, blank slate for creating their dream wedding. Because the City View Metreon is such a large space, we brought in lots of draping to create the ambience of separate spaces for guests to enjoy. We used a bright and cheerful color palette of sherbert and melon hues as the foundation for the design elements that we brought into their wedding. All the details of their wedding incorporated these colors to create a color explosion if you will! Another strong motif of Jenny and Ansony’s wedding was in featuring their favorite love quotes.

The ceremony took place on the terrace of the City View Metreon with panoramic views of San Francisco. The wedding party entered into the ceremony space through huge panels of live, succulent walls which made the space very modern and chic. For cocktail hour, we created a gallery patterned wall with one of the couples’ favorite quotes. Guests found their names on the inverted chevron pattern that we created. Guests were invited to leave their names on painted hearts to create an art piece for the couple as a keepsake.

The reception space was grandiose with draped entrances and light teal linens that popped against their modern white chairs with blush pink cushions. Guests sat down to place settings that featured menus wrapped with an infiniti charm that paid homage to how the couple felt for one another. Each table had a custom made table number in the shape of a gold arrow to pay homage to San Francisco and the iconic “Cupid’s Span” arrow on the Embarcardero. Each table also featured a different love quote as part of the couple’s love quotes collection. We custom created a 3D geometric backdrop for the couple’s sweetheart table that added punch and whimsy to finish off the event space.

Dancing and the Dessert Bar was featured in a separate draped off area of the City View Metreon. We displayed another one of the couple’s favorite love quotes as the backdrop to the dessert bar and created custom candy favors that were color blocked in the couple’s color palette for guests to enjoy.

Whimsical

From The Bride… We knew we wanted to get married in San Francisco, and after researching venues, fell in love with the Golden Gate Club, a former officer’s club in the Presidio. The main ballroom had vaulted ceilings and gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge, all surrounded by eucalyptus trees. We were lucky to have a stunning sunset right as guests sat down to dinner.

We wanted things to be fun and elegant, filled with flowers, greenery and pops of color. My dress was everything I wanted, a flowing romantic skirt, with beautiful beading and a little bit of sparkle — and it was incredibly comfortable. The bridesmaids selected their own dresses in a range of peach and coral colors. The groomsmen went classic in black suits with bowties and pocket squares.

The weeks leading up to the wedding were incredibly busy, but the day of, we were both relaxed and able to savor every moment. It was wonderful seeing all of our friends and family together in one place.

We wanted our ceremony to reflect who we were and our evolving relationship since high school. We asked the groom’s father to officiate, and after talking with us he put together a touching story of our relationship with details that even close friends and family didn’t know.

I really enjoyed designing our invites, programs, menus and signs. I usually design software, so it was enormously fun to draw and print physical items. One of our groomsmen made gorgeous marquee letter lights with our initials T & M, which blew everyone away. I made our ceremony backdrop from wax paper and string with the help of many bridesmaids. My sister drew images for our table names (each is a location special to us) and my cousin sculpted our cake topper. Another close friend set up a photo booth for cocktail hour, and one of the bridesmaids made the props.

Our vendors were all incredible. Our photographer, Jasmine, and florist, Younghee delivered even more than we were hoping for! I don’t know what we would have done without Vera, our wedding coordinator. Our caterer made a custom menu inspired by our favorite foods, from chicken and waffles to fluffy buns with short ribs. Our DJ was incredible and kept everyone on the dance floor into the evening.
