Jessica and Lucas's wedding was no fairytale. It was sophistication and charm and humor and vastly more enchanting than anything you’ve ever read in any children’s book. Here are the elements that really made the magic happen:
1. Sparkles. We're talking lots of sparkles and in a very positive way. The sequined champagne table cloths lent both elegance and flare to the affair, transforming the space and dazzling the guests as they entered the Callipee Ballroom foyer. If you're on a budget, snag some sequined table cloths and do so quickly. Another excellent decision by Jessica, the bridesmaids wore (gorgeous) beaded dresses that pulled the theme together. Best of all though, was the Pom-pom garland in the photo booth--no explaining necessary, it's adorable.
2. Print materials. The couple really took advantage of their print materials to communicate the personality of their relationship. The programs were laugh out loud funny, (“Zoe, Jessica, and Colleen will enter to “Marry You” by Bruno Mars while simultaneously trying to not get their heels stuck in the grass”) the chalk drawn signs were cheeky, and the San Francisco districts themed tables cards featured funky birds acting like priests and hippies. While unfortunately funky birds might not fit into everyone’s table themes, incorporating your go-to places into the wedding can be a beautiful showcase of your relationship’s uniqueness.
3. Flowers. The marriage of vintage pewter and soft pink peonies with delicate anemone and rich David Austins was as swoon-worthy as the couple themselves. A bay leaf garland emphasized the San Franciscan glory of the venue with its sweeping Golden Gate Bridge views, and the flowers placed throughout the grounds delivered the perfect dose of whimsical romance to the venue, which prior to becoming a certified green business served as a military base. In the end, the curtains closed on a day of stunning taste and love as they rode off into the sunset on horseback…or was it a golf cart covered in flowers?
