Elegant San Francisco Wedding at the Palace Hotel...Featured on Style Me Pretty!

I can't express how humbled I am that Style Me Pretty featured two of our weddings last week!  We'll be sharing both of the features on our blog this week, starting with this timeless and elegant wedding at the Palace Hotel!  If you are a reality TV junkie, you might know my couple!  Samantha and Mike were contestants on the first season of NBC's Love in the Wild!  From the start, they chose each other and stuck with one another throughout the entire season, battled all the challenges together, fell in love with one another along the way, AND ultimately won the show and traveled the world together compliments of NBC!  Talk about a fairytale love story in real life!!!

Samantha wanted to have a really timeless, classic and elegant wedding so we used a clean color palette of whites and greys with accents of golds and silvers.  We used subtle travel motifs as well as a general theme of "I Choose You" to tell their journey to love through design.  The result?  An utterly elegant and glamorous wedding with lots and lots of modern details, glitter, and the most beautiful couple, ever!  See how their wedding came together below and don't forget to check out the feature on Style Me Pretty here!

For the ceremony, we created a really modern and clean design with a draped ceremony front, dressed with a white modern table with the most beautiful blooms from my pal Nancy Liu Chin.

I absolutely LOVED the escort wall display that we created for guests to find their seats with.  We used white feathers to symbolize a "flight of journey" and we hand dipped all the feathers in metallic gold paint and glitter.  These were so fab.

The reception was one glamorous affair held in the Garden Court of the Palace Hotel.  With high ceilings, chandeliers and the most beautiful glass roof, it really is such a regal setting that automatically takes one back in time to a gilded era.  We dressed all of the tables in silver and sequin linens and accented the tables with lush, white blooms.  I especially loved the place settings that we created for the reception with diamonte chargers and menus that we hand dipped in gold glitter!  Suffice to say, the reception shined!

THIS is a glitter and sequin lover's dream!

A custom cake topper with the words "I Choose You" was created to pay homage to the fact that since the beginning of their journey together, they chose one another from the very start and continued to choose one another throughout the journey to the very end.  I love details like this that tell a couple's unique story.

Samantha and Mike, you have one of the best love stories that one could ever dream of and the best part about it all, is that I know that you are as in love with one another today as ever.  Happy First Anniversary to the both of you!!!
