Modern San Francisco Wedding: Erin + Stephan

Categories   Real Weddings

There’s something really fun about black & white weddings. They’re bold, can be decorated in a classic or modern theme, and whatever accent colors you choose, are sure to pop! Like this one. It’s black and white with red all over. With guests traveling from the Midwest and East Coast, Erin + Stephen wanted to give all 65 guests the quintessential San Francisco experience. The weekend began with a welcoming tote of California goodies, then moved to the rooftop of the Hotel Vitale for E + S’s outdoor wedding overlooking the bay (vintage trolley cars, Ferry Building, and Bay Bridge in sight).

A guest tote is always fun to have for guests traveling from out of town, especially if they’re all staying in the same hotel. Pack some of your favorite snacks, a map for getting around… the list goes on. We made a San Francisco guest tote a while back with some neat little treats, so check that out for more ideas!

Having an outdoor wedding in San Francisco is gorgeous enough, especially with the views they had from Hotel Vitale. To add a nice statement to their decor, they placed thick black & white striped table linens over all their tables.

There are so many details that I adore about this wedding that it's not easy to pinpoint my favorites....I love everything! Black and white weddings have so much class and it's so much fun to bring in a third color. This bouquet is stunning...just love the chocolate cosmos!

this was an absolutely gorgeous wedding. there is one thing that kinda threw me though. if it was supposedly a san francisco themed wedding, why use something that's from philadelphia? that L-O-V-E thing where the L and the O are on top and the V and the E are on the bottom is a sculpture-type thing in love park in philadelphia. i mean, don't get me wrong, i love what they did with it and it was an amazing idea, i just don't understand why if other details highlight san francisco, why they would want one detail from a completely different city. idk it just kinda made me wonder lol. no big deal, the wedding was gorgeous regardless.
