The Big Fake Wedding San Francisco at the remarkable General’s residence at Fort Mason Center honed in on one person: the bride. It might not be every girl’s style, but deep down, every bride deserves the chance to explore their fashionable, sophisticated and feminine sides. This hands-on West Coast wedding show let vendors open their arms wide to the “European Sky,” spoiling brides and their loved ones with their visions of diamonds, flowers, and pastels, allowing them to become the guests of honor at a special renewal ceremony.
The flowers incorporated were beautifully colorful, dainty and delicate. The stylists even created a paper flower backdrop for both the ceremony and the cake table. They added this special European flavor to take the theme over the top.
The custom-made lace gown was a stunning piece. To accent the fitted silhouette and lace fabric, the designer incorporated sequined cap sleeves and an illusion back. Bride Patricia completed the look with natural makeup, a classic updo, and beautiful statement earrings.
Groom Frank looked impeccable in a dark gray three-piece suit, tan shoes, and brown belt. With his hair slicked back and his black tie in place, Frank complemented his bride beautifully.
Black and white screams couture and is the perfect palette to lots of colorful details. Bridesmaids wore black dresses, while a groomsman wore navy blue. The ladies carried oversized bouquets bursting with pink, white, and blue flowers. The bride’s bouquet featured a gorgeous collection of ribbons, as well.
Each table featured a different style and the tablescapes couldn’t have been nobler. Guests could feast their eyes on oversized arrangements and dine with gold and white pieces and robin’s egg blue napkins.
Lovely plates paired well with the gold-feathered paper suite and bold-colored centerpieces. The colors of the flowers were mirrored in peaches offered at each place setting.
A sleek black and gold tablescape was sensationally striking. Laser cut place cards sat atop each gold charger along with a black menu card. Simple black napkins and a runner of greenery and moss helped bring the look to life.
The head table was an unforgettable ode to the beauty of flowers with its large wall of hydrangea flooding the space with blue. The centerpiece spilled over with beautiful greenery and sat between white tapers and additional bells of hydrangea.
The cake was a beautiful work of art. Three tiers outfitted with gold and blue looked soft and elegant with bows and rows of flowers in between. It was topped with a romantic laser-cut bride and groom; maybe a European prince and princess, perhaps?
A dessert table offered couples a selection of cake and pie pops, beautifully decorated and perfectly displayed.
The ceremony took place outside overlooking the water. The sunshine was generous and forgiving, offering a warm and radiant glow on a picture-perfect couple.
Attendees also got a taste of the fun they, and their guests, could have for their own wedding. A fun photo booth full of costumes and confetti and a lively dancefloor were all they needed to party with Frank and Patricia.
Just like in a real wedding, the couple made quite the exit. But instead of confetti or sparklers, they left through a flurry of flowers. Each attendee was given a rose to toss in the air and wish the couple well on their journey.
The Big Fake Wedding San Francisco transported guests from a West Coast wedding to a European extravaganza. A day spent experiencing impeccable wedding style realized through the industry’s best is an encouraging and enlightening way to take the dreams of your heart and make them a reality.
