New Wedding: De Young Museum SF
Late August is the perfect time of year to get married in San Francisco. Most people don't understand the weather patterns in SF (self included), but summer really doesn't start here until late August, and even then it's still pretty breezy, but at least it's not perpetually foggy. This year, we hosted a beautiful wedding at the De Young Museum during the last week of August and it was a gorgeous day!
As the De Young is a very modern, clean and white space, the bride really wanted to bring in some bursts of color, but nothing too loud. So, she selected a very textural, heavy white linen drape for the dinner tables with turquoise runners and grey napkins. She loved the look of a black chivari chair, which created a great contrast with all the white in the room and also complemented the pattern of the famous Gerhard Richter artwork that flanks the main wall of Wilsey Court. Because the bride enjoys a bit of whimsy, she decided to hire Violetta Flowers, a florist who did a great job intertwining modern and wild throughout.
The event was catered by Betty Zlatchin Catering, who put together a sophisticated, yet comfy menu and served a delicious dinner family style. Their crew did an absolutely fantastic job!! Also amazing, was the music. The groom's friends put together a small band for the ceremony and cocktail hour, even including a second line from the ceremony in the outdoor sculpture garden all the way to the Hamon Tower, which overlooks a 360 view of San Francisco. For dinner and dancing, DJ Harry Duncan spun all 1960's soul music, which set a wonderfully timeless tone for rest of the night.
This wedding was the epitome of San Francisco style and such a delight to be a part of!
