PARTY DETAILS as told by Taleen…
Ani and David’s wedding took place at the Log Cabin in San Francisco’s Presidio. Ani wanted her wedding to feel very intimate and wanted her guests to feel comfortable. She liked rustic elements, but also wanted it to feel a little glamorous. I worked with Ani to combine these two ideas and come up with a Rustic Glam wedding. I took rustic elements such as wood and metal and combined them with more glamorous elements such as sequins, mercury glass, and crackled candle pedestals.
The venue had so much character that we didn’t have to do too much to make it beautiful. For the lighting, we added amber rose uplights and hung string lights above the dance floor to add a little warmth to the room. The dining tables were covered in a blush linen with the most gorgeous sequin chevron runner going down the middle. The centerpieces were a mix of high and low mercury glass vases filled with blush florals. There was also a spread of high and low crackled candle pedestals to add some candlelight. We used wooden crossback chairs to complete the look.
The sweetheart table was sitting under a rustic metal arch with florals and tealights hanging from above. We added Mr. & Mrs. chalkboard signs to the backs of their chairs for a special touch. We also brought in some fabulous rustic lounge furniture that had white cushions and metal legs to go along with the theme.
Ani loved the idea of having fun details throughout her wedding to make it feel special. Some of the details we designed included an “Eat, Drink, and be Married!” sign to welcome guests, a rustic display of homemade jam favors, a unique guestbook with wooden hearts, a whiskey tasting bar, and chevron baggies with chocolate chip cookies for guests to take.
My advice to brides out there is take the time on your wedding day to take it all in. Grab your husband’s hand and go off to the side and just look around. The night truly flies by so take the time to stop and absorb this amazing time in your life.
