The Modern Romantics Blog


This wedding that I'm about to share with you is one of my all time favorites because it epitomizes the definition of timeless, classic and elegant.  This bride and groom are all the way from Texas but San Francisco is where the bride grew up and they couldn't have made a better choice in a venue!  They chose a beautiful color palette of the faintest dusty blue paired with ivories and cremes and let me tell you, there was no detail that was left behind for their big day!  We had the pleasure of working on this wedding with our pal Caroline Tran and she couldn't have captured their day more beautifully.  This wedding was featured on the front page of Style Me Pretty and we're sharing more of the pretty below.  


Just FYI, this bride has some serious style...Tom Ford Shoes and a Vera Wang Dress?  I'd say that's impeccable style.


Can we please discuss how much perfection and beauty was encapsulated in the stationery set that Written Word Calligraphy created for this wedding?  Just Beyond!

One of the elements that made this wedding so elegant was the vintage Rolls Royce that they brought in for transportation which made for the most timeless photos.  I always love details like this to complete the day!

The ceremony was such an elegant one in the rotunda of City Hall.  We had draped openings to welcome guests in and so many beautiful mirrors with custom wording and quotes by Written Word Calligraphy.  Every thing was perfect down to the detailing of the ceremony programs.

The reception was a true beauty, we transformed the rotunda space during cocktail hour and created the most romantic space of dusty blue tables paired with gold accents in their chairs, flatware and glassware.  Each guest had their names hand written on a placecard by Written Word Calligraphy and were treated to an olive sprig that was meticulously placed at their setting.  Amy Burke Designs absolutely killed it with the floral design for this one!

This bride and groom took their chairs seriously.  Written Word Calligraphy hand calligraphed these words on fabric that we hung for their chairs, that were then perfectly adorned with garlands and blooms by Amy Burke.


Thank you D+W for having us along for this amazing journey of planning and designing your wedding with you.  You were a couple that went above and beyond to make sure that all the details of the day were a perfect reflection of who you are.  Most of all, I'm so glad that through the planning process we became such great friends, love you both forever and ever!
