I am definitely feeling the organic modern vibe I get from this San Francisco beauty from What Shanni Saw and Dream A Little Dream Events! It's urban meets elegant meets natural and it's all so fine. I love the mercury glass vases filled with succulents, ferns, hydrangea and tulips scattered across the long feasting tables. And can we just talk about how adorable this bride and her handsome honey are? They are straight out of a fairy tale! Click here to see even more!
From Dream A Little Dream Events... Cristin and Matt were an amazing couple to work with. I met Cristin and Matt in September, when they came by Flood Mansion to meet with me, and see another wedding I was putting together there. They loved what they saw, and decided to have their wedding not only at the Flood Mansion, but also with me as their planner.
We had less than six months to plan, but with her mother picking up beautiful elements for the wedding, and the couple and I booking their vendors, the result was a gorgeous winter wedding! Cristin had lots of lovely ideas, and didn't know how to incorporate them all into one wedding. We worked on her tablescapes to bring the outdoors in, but in a classic way, with hand picked mercury glass vessels and candle holders. The wedding took place on a very rainy day, which created a perfect cozy backdrop to their warm and family oriented wedding.
For those of you considering seeing your groom before the ceremony, this is another example of the touching moment when you first see each other. Another thing to take note of is the difference some simple up-lighting made in both of the rooms to create a different mood.
