Beautiful Julia Morgan Ballroom ~ San Francisco Wedding Photography ~

Lisa and Joe had such an amazing wedding that I know no one will soon forget.  There were lots of laughs, many a tear shed and lots of love this day and so obviously in their lives.  Our Lady of Angels church was near and dear to Lisa and her family as life long parishioners and just a beautiful location.  We were then off on “cable” car to hit the streets and do some fun portraits.  This was a fun crowd to be sure.  We were running all over the top of Nob Hill.

The next stop was one of my favorite venues, Julia Morgan Ballroom in downtown San Francisco.  After an amazing dinner the band Pride & Joy really worked the crowd and had them moving.  This band too is just one of my favorites.  People do not want to sit down!

MODERN MODE

Pat Gibbons Florals

Pat Gibbons Florals

BEHIND THE BLOOMS Serving San Francisco Bay area weddings and special events, veteran floral designer Patricia Gibbons of Pat Gibbons Floral, El Cerrito, Calif., turns out picture-perfect traditional and vintage tabletop arrangements, but her signature style is contemporary.

HISTORY LOOKS For a summer wedding with a Victorian theme, Gibbons plans to incorporate items from the client’s collection, such as antique prints, feathers and shells, “which I’ll be using to create vignettes along with floral displays,” she notes. The centerpieces themselves will include succulents, garden roses and blackberry sprays, gathered in mercury glass — “very popular this year,” she says — in shades of purple and ivory. To keep the centerpieces of a piece with the overall wedding design, Gibbons also will line the ceremony aisle with hydrangeas that start in deep purple and fade to lavender, then ivory — an echo of the ombré wedding cake.

SQUARE DEAL “I’m known for modern designs that have an Asian influence, and I like to bring that aesthetic fusion to my work,” Gibbons explains. To decorate the long, rectangular banquet tables that have replaced standard rounds as a wedding staple, Gibbons likes to “echo the line by using rectangular containers going down the tables. Zinc containers with black river rocks create a bold statement.”

STYLE ON A DIME “Hydrangea is one of the best flowers to use to create a full, budget-friendly display,” Gibbons notes, “while curly willow branches or loops of bear grass can be brought in to add to add height and movement to the design.”
