Ultimate wedding & party destination since 2009

San Francisco nautical wedding reception decor

December 15, 2011

Right now there’s a pier in San Francisco (not Pier 51) sitting lonely that was recently graced by the hands of Rosemary Events and Sillapere, the planning & design team behind many show-stopping Bay Area weddings. The idea behind the shoot was borne of the nautical feel and chilled fog that sweeps over San Francisco’s Marina District. Needless to say the vibrant orange Dahlias, heart-shaped stones and shades of blue in this tablescape bring more romance to a city already full of lovers. If we didn’t tell you this was photographed by Jose Villa, we’re sure you would have figured it out after the first stunning image.  To see more head to newsstands today to pick up the latest issue of San Francisco Brides Magazine!

The table is set with classic Match Pewter Tableware and Sugahara glasses. Custom papers designed by Pancake & Franks pair perfectly with the gunmetal linen napkin and provide just the right balance of classic and edgy. The sweet finish to the setting is the charming heart paperweight accented with rope and bittersweet… a thoughtful takeaway gift for each guest. The whole look is finished with linen stripe armchairs and side chairs in grey and natural linen from H.D. Buttercup.

In order to create a soft and neutral backdrop for the dramatic sculptural piece of driftwood at the center of the table, they started with a natural table linen and a gorgeous Brahms Mount overlay. Imitating textures under the sea, they tucked Dusty Miller and vibrant orange Dahlias in the driftwood as if were organically growing there.
