Niloo of Niloo Events brought us in to work on this Nahal’s wedding. She thought that we would be a perfect fit for the floral design of this event. The ceremony was set to take place at the stately San Francisco City Hall’s Rotunda. Out of all the venues to get married in the city, none are quite as grand as City Hall. We knew that any decorative piece that we brought into the ceremony should echo this venue’s old world architecture so we decided to start with our wrought Lion Stands to hold two oversized florals. The two lion stands on either side of the bride and groom created a focal point on the Rotunda’s massive stairwells.
The floral design incorporated all white flowers including huge Ecuadorian roses, garden roses, and hydrangea. The feeling of the flowers was feminine and soft which was in contrast to the masculinity of the Lion Stands. We also finished off the soft white bridal bouquet with a broach to give it some bling. The overall look was abundant and classy. It was a perfect fit for a wedding at City Hall.
After the ceremony we transferred the ceremony pieces into two of the reception’s table centerpieces. Except this time instead of using our wrought iron creations to hold the flowers we opted to use our custom Glamour Vases. The Glamour Vase is fashioned after a woman’s dress line using an actual dress appliqué and pearls to dress up a vase. The look of the Glamour Vase is again soft and feminine. And once again it’s the same florals that we used at the ceremony, but the different usage of vessel’s to accompany the flowers gives the design a new look. In the end, I think everything flowed together well for Nahal’s wedding, it was beautiful and she was happy.
As far as design tips;
If you are planning an event and want an over the top look try using fewer colors that are accented by bold décor items. Often times simplicity in color and design can make the most stunning impact.
