Modern San Francisco Wedding: Erin + Stephan

June 13, 2012

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.
