Stephanie and Jed had a wedding to remember.  They are a couple that wanted to have fun with their wedding.  Although it was an important day for them they knew who they were and being confined to a stiff and formal celebration was not an option.  They chose to be themselves on this special day and it came through nicely.


This couple was not afraid of color but rather embraced it. Their style was playful and quirky but in a way that worked.  It’s one of those fun and urban weddings that you might expect to find in San Francisco. The groom did ware a black tuxedo but not without his colorful Converse.  And the bride did have a white dress but it was offset with hot pink flowers and black feather embellishments.  It was an offbeat wedding where the “groomsmen sunglasses shot” actually worked.


Their ceremony décor was unique in the sense that we tied horsetail reads together to make tall focal points.  These pieces framed out a structure for this couple to verbally devote their lives to one another.  Once the ceremony was wrapped, guests were ushered into a cocktail hour and lively reception to follow.


We had fun with the reception décor.  Think a little bit of Tim Burton mixed with Pablo Picasso and you will have an abstract idea as to how we approached the floral design.  We treated the florals more as architectural features and shapes that jumped out of vases.  Hot pink, navy blue, fuchsia, and apple green were the unexpected colors of this wedding.  They came together as you would hope an eclectic group of kids from all over the world would suddenly start laughing together and playing in a sandbox.


Part of the reason that this design worked so well together was due to the usage of modern elements.  Chrome vases, painted flowers and pave design all offered clean lines that gave the design some weight and kept it from being too busy.  The floral elements were allowed to stand alone like little art pieces on the table for guests to look at.


Stephanie and Jed were not afraid to take chances and be themselves.  How can you do the same in an upcoming event in your life?

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.
