After hearing that Susan + Ben run an interior design and architecture firm together in San Francisco, we knew their wedding was going to be full of creative, design-driven touches. And everything from the dress (a vintage frock that Susan reworked) to the florals does not disappoint. But our favorite little detail is probably the paper crown favors that Susan + Ben lovingly hand-cut for each and every guest. You can tell from Edyta Szyszlo’s photos that everyone had a lot of fun with those…

Susan purchased her vintage ‘60s gown from Decades of Fashion in SF, and then added gold lace and fringe trim to jazz it up.

Romantic and soft, with a little bit of quirk added in for good measure… everything we love in a bouquet!

Susan says, I would describe our inspiration and concept to be an end-of-summer, simple and intimate dinner party at an old mansion tucked away in the Redwoods. We wanted the party to be true to us, so we took the traditional wedding concept for a spin and made it a modern celebration that reflected our styles.

Our favorite memory of the night was the moment when Ben and I walked into the dining room as husband and wife to see all our guests wearing their crowns! Ben took out his phone and took a picture of that moment—so cute and special!
