About the Venue
What an incredible first impression. The Silicon Valley Capital Club is by far one of the most prestigious private clubs in all of Silicon Valley. The downtown San Jose social club is perfect if you want your wedding venue to have incredible views with a dramatic "urban" feel. Many people are not aware that the club's renowned 5-star restaurant, the penthouse terraces, and the event rooms are open and available to anyone who wants to host a luxe celebration.
A ceremony on the outside terrace is breathtaking; however, the real attraction to this location is the evening skyline. After the sun goes down and your guests start dancing, you can see the twinkle of Silicon Valley. It feels as if you are surrounded by a million stars. Just gorgeous!

The simple elegance of an orchid makes it the perfect choice for any wedding celebration. From the wedding designer planning an over-the-top design or the DIY bride trying to get a fresh, clean look, each will be able to incorporate this versatile bud into a variety of designs.
As pictured above, an eclectic display of single bud orchids submersed in clear glass vessels is a simple and elegant way to add a burst of color to your table without going overboard on your floral budget. I love to use orchids because they stand alone so well. No greens or filler is needed to create a captivating look.
If you are trying to achieve a more rustic look, consider encasing either a single plant or multiple plants with a combination of moss and birch bark in clear glass vases. The result is quick, easy, and inspiring.
The color palette chosen by this couple is right on trend. Aubergine and violet or almost any shade of purple paired with soft gray or silver is a stunning duo... sexy, sleek, and elegant. Think about using gray linens with purple flowers and let the flowers stand on their own. By giving the flowers a great foundation to stand against, you can keep the arrangements simple.
