Better late than never, right? That’s what I’m going with for this post. About a year ago, I designed a romantic ceremony setting under the stars in front the Conservatory of Flowers as part of Blu Bungalow’s annual Beyond Blu Bungalow Venue Tours. Blueprint Studios provided the rentals, while Florabella Studios curated the flowers.
In pulling images by the lovely and talented Milou +Olin Photography for our recent article on the Best Outdoor Venues in the Bay Area, I was reminded just how amazing everything came together and had to share more with you!
As guests arrived via Classic Cable Cars, the illuminated staircase beckoned them towards the Conservatory. The candles that lined the staircase and aisle were provided by GlassyBaby, who not only sell their beautifully colored votives, but rents them for events. The flower arrangements were by Florabella Studios and all rentals were from BluePrint Studio.
Guests enjoyed a bridal fashion show with beautiful gowns from Kinsley James Bridal Salon before heading inside for libations, tasty bites and more wedding inspiration. Below are my favorite images of the ceremony as captured by Milou + Olin Photography. Be sure to jump over to the article in Modern Luxury Magazine for more photos from the event, including the amazing vignettes designed by our colleagues and friends that were on display inside the pavilion.
A traditional rug and mirrored desk anchor the altar space while cherry colored blooms with pink ranunculus, berries and overflowing foliage pop against the whites of the conservatory and create an ever-so-romantic setting.
I chose mismatched, distressed chairs with mirrored side tables placed sparingly throughout to add texture and interest to the space, without distracting from the beautiful surroundings. Eclectic while still refined. Don’t you just love this mixed look?
Joie de vivre!
