I left my Heart in...

What a gorgeous view! Guests at this wedding were treated to a view of the Port of San Francisco while enjoying dinner at the luxurious Hotel Vitale.
The Bride and her Maid of Honor carried bouquets of hydrangea. One in Shades of purple and lavender and the other in green.

 The Bride wanted her Grandmother to play a prominent role in her wedding so we played around with her dress from the '30's. The button down bodice of the dress was definitely the way to go.
The silky material and the long line of buttons made the most beautiful wrap on the bouquet stems.
This was perfect for both "something old" and "something borrowed".
See how pretty it looked. What a special touch!
The ceremony was held on the deck of the Hotel Vitale with a stunning view of the Bay. Thanks to the team at Quintana Events for the creative way of displaying the pashminas that the ladies wore when the bay breeze kicked up in the evening.
The Groom and his buddies had magenta orchid boutonnieres.
The Mother's corsages matched, but had an accent of dark plum sweet peas with ivory ribbons.
The opposite view of the waterfront was just as amazing with all the tall skyscrapers surrounding.
Floating candles were also lining the center of the tables and were going to be lit at sunset.
What a magical atmosphere.
From here you can see the upper deck where the ceremony was held, and then 2 stories lower where dinner took place.

The beautiful Bride Katie!
Katie sent a lovely note after her wedding:
Hi Lisa,
I just wanted to thank you again for the gorgeous, gorgeous flowers! I was sorry I didn't get to chat with you more when you arrived, it was crunch time and a lot going on at once! The purple color in the hydrangea was exactly the shade I was hoping for. Both my sister's bouquet and mine had such a contrast against our dresses, they were great! And the addition of my grandmothers gown was very special to me, thank you for making it work. Everyone commented how beautiful everything was and how awesome the table looked! It all was perfect! Thank you again.
It was my pleasure. Best Wishes to the happy couple!
