And if you’re curious about the idea behind the shoot. I’ve described them in detail here.
Chic and colorful affair meets Nob Hill luxury hotel in this delicate styled shoot. Put together by a team of San Francisco creatives, the shoot borrowed ideas from the venue, the world renown Fairmont Hotel. Built at the end of the roaring twenties, the age designed to break the rules, the hotel boasts the most breathtaking view of San Francisco.
The shoot took place at the Penthouse of the hotel, which hosts small intimate weddings above the Nob Hill skyline. The team chose a sleek dress by Alon Livné, with a simple jeweled headpiece for the bride, and paired with heels by Bella Belle, the brides attire was modern yet playful. The colors for the linens and table setting was chosen to compliment the subtle teal-green tiles which decorate the courtyard of the Penthouse.
The bright colored peonies created an arch around the courtyard, ideal for the ceremony setting that would pop against the mono crone city skyline. Complete with floating candles in the fountain, the team created an ideal setting for a romantic elopement, and a simple elegant affair. To minimize distraction from the beauty of the courtyard, the team added ghost chairs, which complemented the couple’s minimalist look.
And finally, influenced by the Eastern and Western architectural cultures of his age, the architect behind the suite, Arthur Upham Pope, designed a suite the had echoes of the ancient world and visions of the modern world. The creative team played off the theme of the suite, to combine the traditional with a modern twist. In addition, calligraphy and ink pen drawing were used in the invitation and vow books to represent the past, and the minimalist attire and table setting was used to show the present.
