Calling All Coffee Cuties: This San Fran E-Shoot Is For You

Having been together for 15 years, this couple decided to elope to San Fran to make it official, but before heading to City Hall (and we have pics of that chic occasion coming tomorrow!) they did a little engagement shoot around town with Jasmine Lee, and let’s just say these pics are what I like to call postcard worthy. Fall in love with these coffee drinking cuties in our Vault right here!

From the Bride… Dennis and I have been together since we were seventeen and after many wonderful years as a couple, we got engaged and flew to San Francisco to elope. These photos were taken two days before our ceremony at City Hall and depict a beautiful day in San Francisco that we will always remember. We had to research locations from afar but knew we wanted to photograph in places where we felt the most natural. The cafe was the perfect casual setting, a place to just sit down for a chat and enjoy heart-warming coffee. The barista kindly created heart-shaped latte art in my favourite red “love” mug – something that Dennis had given me ages ago that was a little piece of home we brought with us to SF. Golden Gate Park was our second location and was full of beauty and character. The park was lush and had this magical way of dispersing light, an aspect that was so delicately and beautifully captured by our photographer, Jasmine Lee.

This day perfectly complemented our wedding day and we’re so happy that these moments were captured in our place of marriage. San Francisco will always have a special place in our hearts.

Pink Champagne + Swans = Best. Day. Ever.

As far as anyone is concerned, this early morning bridal party inspiration is the best idea yet. Pink champagne? Loads of it. A few special feathered guests? Absolutely. We’ve got all the pretty (and more) captured by Lara Lam and effortlessly styled by Kyla Gold waiting for you in The Vault!

From Kyla GoldFor this bridal shoot we drew our inspiration from the romantic details of the monumental Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco and the swan lagoon. We kept the design fresh, simple and elegant with a mixture of blush tones accented with gold and white details. We hope to create inspirations and gift ideas for a warm and sweet gathering between the bride and bridesmaids. Often times the bridesmaids are the best friends of the bride and their love and support plays an important part. We’d like to inspire all the bride-to-be that – an elegantly styled breakfast with lovely gifts and flowers could be a beautiful opening prelude for the wedding!

Seniman Calligraphy created a beautiful custom invitation suite in gold ink and a special bottle of rosé with hand calligraphy for our custom bridesmaid gift baskets. We also filled the bridesmaid baskets with a pink and gold mini emergency kit from Pinch Provisions and lovely sweets from Sugarfina. Bowerbird Atelier created a beautiful table arrangement and hand tied bouquets in soft pinks and white with fresh greens. Skyla Arts and Makeup by Quis kept the girls look fresh and feminine to compliment the lovely Dessy and Jim Hjelm gowns provided by Weddington Way. Lara’s film captured the soft details of the bridal shoot at this stunning landmark.
