party : M&M wedding

IMG_9362

This weekend, we styled our first wedding at a historic firehouse (known as Firehouse 8) in San Francisco for friends Meg & Max.

The building was a beautiful setting to work with – tall white walls with touches of brick and a room divider made of glass windows. Since Meg is a writer, we wanted to infuse the day with literary touches. We also used glass and gold throughout the wedding to add sophistication.  The feeling we wanted to convey was that of effortlessness and class.  We hope you enjoy the photographs (click on any photo to enlarge it).  It was truly special!

Two museum cases near the entrance were filled with gold-painted books. Boards sat atop and held vintage book pages with gold thumbtacks.

We handpainted this board with lines from an E. E. Cummings poem.  It reads . .  anywhere I go you go my dear, I fear no fate for you are my fate my sweet, I want no world for beautiful you are my world my true.

We dipped some of our glass vessels in gold and others were a beautiful blue colour.  Sets of three sat on top of book page placemats we made to create simple, but elegant centerpieces.

A canopy we constructed using various sheer fabrics and twinkle lights. This is where the bride & groom wed!
