That was a true story of how I met Dana. Our team was installing for a beautiful event at the Bently Reserve and was about 75% done when Dana walked in with the venue manager to do a site visit. She was too polite to interrupt our installation but after conveying how much she loved what she saw, the venue manager introduced us. I felt so humbled at all of Dana's compliments at the time, and was thrilled when she reached out to me the very next week, asking me to plan her wedding.
Dana and Hisham lived in Southern California and were both extremely busy with their careers, so they basically entrusted our team with all aspects of the wedding, from the more macro tasks of hiring the right team, to the tiniest of details like preparing comfortable flip flops for her guests to dance in. They flew in once to do their menu tasting, design meeting, table mock up, and final site visit and left everything else to our team.
The Bently Reserve is one of the most classic venues in San Francisco, and is a wonderful blank canvas for us to work with. After curating through all of Dana's pins on Pinterest, we proposed a design concept that conveyed a style/mood of a dreamy luxe garden that would be fancy, yet fun. The details would be refined, yet relaxed, and we would incorporate a clean mix of Old World details and modern touches. Dana loved this concept and so we ran with it, using warm tones of grey, blush pink, and metallic gold.
The results were just what Dana and Hisham envisioned, and we couldn't be happier to watch them walk down the aisle that day! Hope you enjoy these lovely photos from Chung Li:
