Yesterday, my lovely and inspiring collaboration wedding shoot was featured on Style Me Pretty! And now I get to share the goodies, finally ;) So today we have part one and tomorrow part two. I worked with a fantastic group of ladies from the Bay Area. You must check out their work and HIRE them for your own wedding! And I’m going to go ahead and call a wedding trend for 2011 – outdoor flea market vintage meets GLAM!

Greetings from San Francisco! With so much eye candy on the wedding scene, it was time to put San Francisco on the map! We wanted to capture some elements reminiscent of our city in the inspirational design—Victorian architecture, diverse color, the California Gold Rush, natural beauty of the area, all with a modern twist. The goal was to showcase charming details, a bit of our city’s history mixed with the easy-going elegance that our SF brides strive for.

Our color palette and patterns were an eclectic variety of golds, poppy/cherry reds, slate/seaspray blues, celery greens and buttery creams. We wanted to add a pop of vintage pattern in some of the key details such as the tablecloths, favors and pillows. Olivia’s menu, table number and invitation set complimented the mood of timeless elegance with a fun twist.

Brocade and broach napkin rings, vintage demitasse cups as favors and place card holders, as well as the wrought iron lounge furniture were all added for Victorian appeal. The gold-rimmed dinnerware, gold flatware, gold dining chairs and gold-rimmed wine glasses added some glamour and elegance to our outdoor setting.
