Today we have the pleasure of sharing the romantic and whimsical California wedding of Zhen and Francis, which has been featured on the Style Me Pretty California blog. First, can we just mention how stunning Zhen looks in her Jenny Peckham gown? Jaw dropping!
I loved working with this fun and happy couple, who met working at Facebook and just wanted an elegant, yet relaxed and carefree wedding. The result was what I called “Gilded Whimsy” – a neutral color palette with touches of soft yellows, natural greens, and bronze accents. We incorporated a black and white ticking stripe in the linens to keep it playful and youthful, like their personalities. The couple made laser cut invitations and signage, as well as custom escort card wine charms with each guests table assignment.
Food – locally source, tons of flavor and beautifully presented – was a big priority, so we enlisted Culinary Eye Catering to provide a beautiful al fresco experience. Both the bride and groom have Asian heritage, so the menu was a blend of California fresh and Asian fusion.
