AN ESTATE WEDDING

 
I was so lucky to hook up with photographers Chyna Darner and Jennifer Low.  Along  with with Miranda Meisenbach of Divine Affairs Events  all  helped conceptualize the vintage mood behind this jaw-dropper of a styled shoot featuring three of my 50s-style dresses.  The Nimitz Mansion on Yerba Buena Island in San Francisco was the perfect backdrop for our vision--an estate with magnificent views of the San Francisco Bay.  Here there are acres of lawn and blooming gardens just popping with color.  We added a few more  San Francisco wedding pros into the mix to work up this croquet and lawn sport wedding theme that was so rich in details. First off, Miranda did a fabulous job with the tables. The main table was set up with vintage china from the house accented with gold silk napkins.  I particularly loved the center piece--a tall vase of mixed florals and Baby's Breath with smaller arrangements in glass vases placed around the table.  The chairs were tied with a pink/gold sash in antique taffeta accented with a rosette and tail knot.  I have to say my fave touch here has to be the hanging lanterns hung on an oak tree.  There's a real vintage touch and feel to these paper balls in ivory and yellow with tails of pink ribbon.
Special thanks to Beth Covey of Sassy Diva Designs who filled The Nimitz Mansion with so many different flowers while keeping the theme of it all cohesive. And Monina of Moderne Beauty, thank you for your exceptional talent in making Olivia even more beautiful than she already is . . .
