About the venue
I love it when a couple can embrace a wedding venue completely outside the box. This small and intimate celebration at Ambiance Antiques in San Francisco allowed this couple to serve up an eye-catching element of style in every aspect of their celebration.
I love venues where you are surrounded by decor. It takes the worry out of needing to plan a theme or the necessity to spend elaborately on decor. This wedding takes the idea of the vintage antique feel to the next level. I love how they styled their glamorous and chic wedding trousseau around the wonderful French Baroque themed antique shop.
The dress is completely killer and she looks amazing in it. You can picture this couple at the top of a Wedgewood China inspired wedding cake.
Ask the Expert
When planning a table scape at such an elaborately staged venue, you might be tempted to go with a simple plain design, assuming that a busy pattern or overdone table would compete with the already perfectly staged decor. In this circumstance, a plain boring table would seem out of place. Use a collection of different chargers, antique china patterns, and different types of glassware to create a fun yet cohesive look. Centerpieces created from silver Revere bowls or antique candelabras would fit in nicely, and an assortment of bottles, containers, lace doilies, and damask linen will bring this location to the next level.
