With a ‘Key to my Heart’ theme and a gorgeous palette of blush, white, and gold, this shoot became an instant Valentine’s Day classic! San Francisco’s Nimitz Mansion was the perfect choice for an intimate celebration – the striking architectural details created a lovely backdrop for the shoot, from the candle-lined aisle leading to the ornate mantel, and the gold chandeliers hanging over the Head Table.
Stylist and Planner Charmed Events Group used the crisp white walls of the mansion as a clean white backdrop and chose a romantic palette of blush and gold. Poppy’s Petalworks created classic arrangements in soft pink and white, lining the aisle and the top of the mantel in silver mercury glass vessels accented with lace and hanging pearls. The elaborate Head Table was set with our scrolling Billie’s Roses Ivory linen, which added a hint of pattern to the table in a delicate tone on tone print that didn’t distract from the gold rimmed china and glassware.
A flowing Amsale gown for the bride made a romantic statement – the non-traditional color paired with loose, flowing waves and a stack of statement bangles was the perfect, relaxed look for an elopement! The couple exchanged vows barefoot in front of the fireplace, surrounded by the glow of candlelight.
