The Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park has long been one of my favorite places to spend time in the city. It has got to be one of the dreamiest wedding venues in the whole Bay Area. The ceremony takes place just outside of the gorgeous white Victorian greenhouse with sweeping views of Sutro Tower and the beautifully manicured gardens that I've picnicked in year after year.
After the ceremony, guests wind their way through the lush greenhouse stopping for cocktails while being awed by next level botanical delights. If you haven't spent time perusing their incredible collection of unique plants from all over the world, you should make a date of it asap.
Janet and Kenny got married in May and when I first saw them they were laughing and holding hands in a world all their own. There wasn't a trace of stress from either of them the whole process of our planning, and I have to wonder if it's because they were focused so deeply on each other. I so appreciated their trust in my creativity and was thrilled at how ecstatic Janet was over the flowers. Her bridesmaids were stunning, but it's the traditional Korean dresses that the elder women wore that really caught my eye.
Spring is a time for some of my favorite flowers to shine: dogwood, peonies, and sweet peas, so I really enjoyed designing Janet and Kenny's ceremony arch to reflect the season and tone of their wedding. The suspended greenery over their reception made the space more cozy and the table garlands kept everything super fresh feeling. I've had so many delightful clients this year, but Janet and Kenny, I credit you for kicking it off so sweetly!
