A little boho love on the blog today. Boho can be achieved in quite a few ways, so today I’m inspired by Moroccan details and feathers accents. I recommend drawing inspiration for your color palette and flowers from traditional rugs, like you see at the bottom of the board. You might even try using rugs as runners, either for your ceremony or tables…
I had such a great time working with Crystal and Brian ~ a dynamite couple with lots of energy that just exuded positive human emotion. When I met C +B, they had their venue selected and knew they wanted a mid-century mod themed wedding. After listening to all their ideas and main desires, I helped them develop a cohesive design. We started by selecting a mid-century mod color palette of dark green, pistachio, and gray with pops of orange. To achieve their design, we focused on succulents, geometric print, clean lines and terrarium vessels. You can see the inspiration board I created for them here.
Coordinating Ellen and Gadi’s wedding was extra special for me, as the groom was my former boss! I felt so honored that he and Ellen entrusted me with their big day. They were less concerned with the traditional elements of a wedding. Most important to them were the religious elements of the ceremony, delicious food and throwing a great party for their family and friends, some of whom were traveling all the way from Israel. Ellen and Gadi were married at Temple Emanu-El, a gorgeous, landmark temple in San Francisco with unique and interesting history. The reception followed at Foreign Cinema restaurant in The Mission, the perfect place for those whose main criteria is excellent food and a great party!
My favorite details from their wedding were created with love. The laser cut chuppah cloth and ketubah were both custom-made by the bride’s artist friends. Ellen wore a J. Crew wedding dress and styled it with the perfect leopard jacket, vintage inspired heels and several strands of pearls. She finished the look with a beautiful silk scarf around her bouquet. The cocktail hour kicked off with a heartwarming video with messages from Gadi’s family in Israel. After dinner, we quickly learned this was a dancing crowd. The floor was packed until the last song.
If you are anything like I was when I was planning my wedding, searching the internet for inspiration is a big part of your process. While Pinterest has made a big splash in the industry providing tons of inspiration for engaged couples, I still find myself going to weddinggawker. While bloggers, photographers and brides can upload photos, the WeddingGawker team chooses only the best to showcase.
