From engaged & inspired… This vignette was created for a bridal event called The Lab Event which takes place in the San Francisco area each year. This team of Northern California professionals was paired together to create a 20×20 space filled with inspiration for over 150 engaged couples to walk through and engage with. Engaged couples come to this event looking to put together their perfect vendor team as well as find inspiration for their upcoming wedding.
The Lab Event held a contest for brides to put together inspiration boards and we picked several winners and brought their boards to life! The theme for this styled shoot was “Woodland” with the tented lounge being the main inspiration behind the rest of the design. Shelter Co. is a popup camping experience perfect for events and weddings. Inside the tent is a trendy lounge area filled with mid-century modern furniture and accents. She also created a firepit lounge complete with butterfly chairs and blankets.
The theme of outdoor elements was carried throughout the space with the floral being mostly greenery and white tones. Floral Theory used many different kinds of flowing and textured greenery to create the feel of outdoors but with a very elegant twist.
The tablescape was pulled together with a similar palette and included a lot of brass elements and candlelight. Aerialist Press created the perfect invitation suite for this design with a woodland and lantern themed suite. Fox & Fawn Bakehouse created a set up very simple cakes to match the very organic theme of the space and also pulled together a hot cocoa bar perfect for a camping or outdoor themed wedding.

From Anna Wu Photography…Absolutely everything about Emma and Phil’s wedding was charming. The venue was a culinary institute in the heart of wine country. The colors and all of the flowers were beautiful. And most of all, the bride and groom were so obviously in love and kept tearing up throughout the day. I am so glad to have gotten to know these two since our first meeting and their engagement session months ago; it was such a pleasure to be a part of the wedding day.
From the Bride…Emma and Phil met through mutual friends seven years ago in Montreal, and they started dating right away. Their love story then took them to New York, New Jersey, back to Montreal, and through Ohio in varying periods of long distance and being together. Eventually, they decided they wanted to move somewhere out west, and considered Denver, Seattle, and San Francisco. They settled on the Bay Area, crammed their tiny Chevy Aveo with as much as it would fit, and drove across the country in May 2011. The next few months were pretty stressful, while they looked for jobs, an apartment, and lived off as little money as possible, but it was a great adventure and an opportunity for our relationship to grow. They settled into their new lives in the Bay Area and were so excited for their families and friends to be able to get a glimpse into our new lives when they joined them in California for their wedding celebration.

My husband knows full and well that the way to my heart is through a bouquet of pink peonies – no if, ands or butts about it. So when this Sonoma beauty from Anna Wu Photography hit my inbox, it was ALL I could do not to endlessly drool All. Day. Long. Want a little more? We’ve got it waiting right here.

From the photographer… Amy and David’s vineyard wedding was a real joy to photograph. From their wedding venue to the carefully selected decor and details, everything made their wedding day even more special.
Amy and David might not have known it then, but the day they both attended their mutual friend’s birthday party was the day their lives would become forever intertwined. And not only would Amy and David fall in love and decide to get married, their friend Danny would come along as their officiant. This wedding was definitely filled with many touching moments and tears of happiness.
