Stylish Wedding at the De Young Museum

It's been awhile since I've blogged, because I have been so busy with many beautiful, fantastic weddings this Fall. I can't wait to share the photos here. To start, here is a recent wedding we had the pleasure of planning for Carolyn and David-- a fun, down to earth, witty couple that entrusted their entire wedding planning to us, with one goal:

"We want to be a guest at our own wedding and party, and have FUN!"

No grand entrance, no first dance, no formal portraits.....just a good 'ole time with friends and family!

They married inside the Piazzoni Mural Room in front of a Eucalyptus wood table filled with a dynamic interplay of glass, stones, and arching stems of white flowers by Hunt Littlefield.

After a short and sweet ceremony, Carolyn and David led their guests to Hamon Tower, located on the top floor of the museum with a 360 degree panoramic view of San Francisco. As guests enjoyed an array of hors d'oeurves and an open bar by the renown Paula Le Duc Fine Catering, our team hustled and bustled downstairs to transform the Wilsey Court for their dinner and dancing.

My very talented partner Gloria Wong of Gloria Wong Design did a phenomenal job designing a refined, stylish wedding for our clients that blended beautifully with the contemporary style of the museum. Along with Neil Hunt of Hunt Littlefield, they played with sleek, textured materials and used unusual, whimsical elements to create the look and feel that Carolyn wanted.

After a delicious dinner, we reopened the Piazzoni Mural Room which became a museum exhibit. We used faux museum display plinths to showcase a variety of Carolyn and David's personal memorabilia. At the center of the room was a 10' wish tree, allowing guests to hang their hand written note cards expressing their well wishes for the couple. Guests also got to enjoy a beautiful dessert buffet and a fun photobooth with silly props.

Thank you to an amazing team who made this happen!
