From Coco TranA beautiful a special elopement between two of the sweetest souls. Bessie and Dean are two of the most endearing and fun loving human beings I’ve ever met. They are both young yet share so much love, joy, and wisdom about love. I have asked Dean and Bessie why they have decided to elope in the city hall instead of planning an large and elaborate wedding as they were first planning to, Dean graciously said to me, ” We feel that the marriage is more important than the wedding” .

Coastal California Wedding Inspiration

The lazy days of summer may be dwindling but  the perfect seaside affair is right at our fingertips thanks to Brett Heidebrecht. He teamed up with Kylie Swanson + Poppy Lane Design and One True Love Vintage Rentals  for a shoot inspired by the raw beauty of the ocean and the most stunning silver gown by Carol Hannah. Glamour and the wild beauty of the beach are an unstopable combo. See it here.

From Brett HeidebrechtDrawing inspiration from the subtle beauty of California??s coast as well as Carol Hannah??s stunning silver gown, I wanted to mimic the soft and feminine textures of both the location and the dress in all aspects of this shoot. The backdrop of the mesmerizing blue ocean was the perfect setting to complement the light, airy mood and largely influenced both the decor and floral choices.

Styling countless beautiful pieces in such a breathtakingly beautiful location just outside of San Francisco was quite the dream. Brett Heidebrecht effortlessly captured each and every detail to perfection and Poppy Lane Design took my breath away with her magical floral creations. The MVP of this shoot undoubtedly went to the team at One True Love Vintage Rentals, who happily hauled such spectacular (and heavy) treasures into some not-so-easy to reach spots. I was blessed to work alongside such an incredibly talented team of vendors, one that any bride would be lucky to have on her wedding day.

Hotel

From the Bride…The vision for the wedding was something chic and sophisticated, yet intimate. Chris and I met and live in San Francisco, so we wanted the wedding to in the city, in a venue that was indoor, but special. When we saw the Spanish Suite of the Clift Hotel, it almost felt as if it were custom made for our wedding. Between the warm redwood, the sparkling chandeliers and the Philippe Starck chair covers, it was absolutely gorgeous. The fact that it opened onto a tented patio that overlooked the lights of downtown San Francisco made it truly perfect.

We thought the best way to complement this beautiful space was with simple all-white flowers. The baby’s breath garland on the mantle was a highlight–dramatic, yet soft and lacy. We also added personal touches throughout the wedding, such as my late grandmother’s handkerchiefs for “happy tears”, signature cocktails, and personalized menus. One of my best friends is an artist and graphic designer, so we were lucky enough to have her do all the signage and invitations. The room felt so elegant, and yet so warm, which is exactly what we wanted for our 65 guests.

My favorite moment of the night was just looking at Chris’ face while we were getting married–it was actually glowing. It really hit me then how lucky I was to be marrying this man! We worked thoughtfully on customizing the ceremony with our officiant, and it was so special and just felt so right for us. It was truly a magical night.
