Like many of you, I love looking at beautiful things. It's a blessing to be in the wedding industry because a big part of my job is to look at beautiful things, and to make things beautiful. What most people outside of the industry don't realize though, is that behind the beautiful photos on blogs, magazines, and pinterest is a whole lot of sweat and tears from very talented and hard working people striving to bring a vision to reality.
Over the fourth of July weekend, our team worked on a rather complex and large production wedding at the De Young museum in San Francisco. It took over 300 design and planning hours between my team and Gloria Wong Design's team to create the extraordinary blueprint for over 60 staff members to execute on the wedding day.
It's hard to describe to clients the level of detail and precision that an event requires, particularly at museums. Even for an event design that is more simple, a lot of thought has to be put into the production, to be sure it executes correctly. Everything can look perfect on paper, but execution is key, and that is exactly what our team thrives on! We love the challenge of working at non-traditional venues, and helping our clients to create extraordinary events at the most unusual places.
Here, I'd like to share some behind the scenes photo from our recent wedding at the De Young museum....the parts that clients and guests never get to see on the wedding day!
