Working with Elise + David on their whimsical forest wedding was truly a dream! While we love the convenience of a conventional wedding venue, the decision to hold their nuptials on their family's private estate amongst ancient towering redwoods made for a magical and unforgettable event.
Surrounded by their nearest and dearest, our happy couple exchanged vows in a lovely outdoor ceremony. An arch covered in lush greenery and cream and blush blooms by Jane Hardgrove served as the ceremony's focal point where all eyes were on Elise + David as they became husband and wife. The contrast of the groom and groomsmen's light suits with the bridesmaid's deep maroon gowns were a stunning contrast to the natural surroundings.
The reception was held in a large clearing surrounded by soaring trees with twinkling lights strung overhead for a romantic ambiance. Round tables cloaked in neutral linens were paired with vineyard chairs and elegant place settings, both enhancing the scenery and playing off of the whimsical fairyland surroundings. Gorgeous floral centerpieces were comprised of peach and cream blooms with subtle pops of deep maroon.
Fogcutter SF served up mouthwatering tray passed appetizers through cocktail hour and an impressive dinner that was as delicious as it was beautiful! Guests enjoyed an evening of dancing beneath the stars to the tunes played by Verducci Event Productions and grabbing drinks from the custom beer bar, naturally a huge hit!
Thank you as always to our incredible team of vendors that helped bring Elise + David's vision to life and to Emily Scannell for such beautiful imagery!
