Years ago I was doing a walk through with a client at the San Francisco St Regis, when I was blown away by the petal art designed on the wall.  I loved the coloring and details they provided as they danced across the wall.  I wanted to create a piece that partnered in that dance, to be part of this beautiful element.  Pascale Girardin is the artist.  She hand created each petal and placed them in a beautiful wind blown stream on the wall (as pictured above).

I love to think “out side of the box”.  I feel that in weddings, the box can be the idea of a “center” piece.  Why does the centerpiece always come from the center of the table?

I wanted to do something that started from the side of the table and worked its way over.  I am a fanatic for architectural elements so I started with Nature’s best – Fig vine.  I built the sand blasted tree combining Fig vine with Manzanita.

I also love dried mushrooms.  They have gotten a bad rap as  a “granola girl’s flower” so I wanted to glam them up and make them feel like a waving  ruffle.    I also incorporated seashells that had the mauve tones deep inset within the flowers.  These played off of the flow of the petals on the wall.  The flowers are in dusty pink and mauve.  We worked with ruffly full blooms to offset the harsher elements of branches, mushrooms and shells.

We were excited to have Grace Ormonde magazine feature this table design in her magazine (Spring/Summer 2010 p. 124).    Hartmann Studios partnered with us providing the tabletop and chairs/rentals.  We love working with them as they have great, affordable, elegant pieces.  Wildflower Linen created our custom linen layering many fabrics to fall at various levels.

We love to start with beauty and add to it – Thank you St Regis for the inspiration.  Thank you Pascale Girardin for bringing beauty to SF. Thank you Philippe for capturing the moment.

About Asiel Design

We believe design begins with a relationship of trust with your wedding planner and event designer. When choosing an event designer or a wedding coordinator, we believe that you should feel listened to, understood, and guided through the process in a way, which helps you achieve a look and feel that is personalized to your style. There should be a connection with the designer’s work, esthetic, and a comfort-ability with the professionalism of the company they represent. Mutual respect between the client and the wedding coordinator or event designer is the foundation to a successfully designed event. We believe it is the client who holds all the secrets to their design – what they like, what excites them, and the message and experience they desire to convey throughout their event.
