Be still my modern ballroom wedding loving heart (seriously, be still...we have a post to write!). I can barely contain my monochromatic excitement for this San Francisco ballroom wedding by the lovely Alison of Alison Ulsoffer Events. The florals by Nancy Liu Chin? Perfection. The images by Scott Andrew? Dreamlike. I am literally dying over this wedding and all of the images in the full gallery. But have no fear, it doesn't stop there - no, no...we also included their grab your tissues wedding video by LoveSpun Films. Happy Friday indeed!

And because we know you need more modern ballroom goodness, here's a little work of art from LoveSpun Films:

From Alison of Alison Ulshoffer Events...Ben and Amy's wedding was an incredible collaboration between the couple, their florist and our staff. They had a very defined vision of what they wanted their wedding day to entail. Every detail was thought out, created and incredibly fun to bring to life. Most importantly it was a beautiful representation of the couple. Their wedding was subtle yet absolutely stunning! Ben and Amy choose some of Northern California's best vendors. Each was handpicked by the bride and groom and every one of them helped ensure this beautiful day was a success.

After looking at several incredible properties in both San Francisco and the Napa Valley, Ben and Amy chose an incredible venue, The San Francisco Ferry Building. The Ferry Building which sits on the bay with stunning views, was the perfect spot to create Ben and Amy's "eco-chic" affair.

Amy walked down the aisle where Ben was waiting under a custom made chuppah. Amy and the room were literally glowing! After the ceremony their guest were ushered into the Port Room to enjoy specialty cocktails, hand passed fares and enjoy the unsurpassed views of the San Francisco skyline and Bay Bridge. Their friends and family were catering to by the amazing fares of Paula Le Duc fine catering. We cannot say enough about Molly and her staff.

Nancy Liu Chin, as always, created phenomenal table scapes that were a perfect match to the white on white parson tables and leather banquets. The room was absolutely breathtaking! Hundreds of glass vases, beakers and candle lite centerpieces filled the room. Nancy and her team are a dream to work with! We decided to split the massive room with both large banquet tables and a handful of round banquettes we picked from Hartmann Studios. We designed a schematic so all of their guests we close to Ben and Amy and felt a part of the celebration. The result was stunning! Miosa Couture and R. Douglas Custom Clothier designed Ben and Amy's wedding day attire, and as you can see their designs and craftsmanship are flawless.

Scott Andrew, who could not have been more of a perfect fit, once again captured the day beautifully! He is such an amazing talent. Ben and Amy also chose LoveSpun Films to work with. Jessica is truly amazing to work along side and her work speaks for itself.
