Modern Autumn Wedding Shoot

San Francisco, CA

This photo shoot began with a desire to spark the imagination and push the boundaries of concept and design. The venue for the shoot, the de Young Museum, was a springboard for inspiration, both as a creative space (art museum) and architectural statement. The working title aptly became “The Creative Leap”!

As a physical space, the de Young is modern, bold, graphic and dramatic ~ these same adjectives describe the look of the photo shoot and the type of couples that the de Young and the vendors who collaborated on the shoot like to attract.

The various components took their cues from the materials and design elements at the de Young. Copper and perforated metal, used extensively in the design of the museum, were integrated into many of the details, including the ceremony structure, floral jewelry, sweetheart table backdrop, cake table canopy upon which the “floating” cake sat atop, candle holders, print pieces and escort card display.

These hard metal elements were balanced by circular and serpentine motifs that were integral to many of the designs. Details include the round ceremony canopy, the circular pattern of the ceremony chairs radiating from the main ceremony structure, the specific linen pattern, the way the china was set in a growing circular pattern, the round copper backed escort cards, and the round menus that acted as individualized guest place cards at each place setting. The cake display mirrored the circular china place setting and was decorated by tying in the table linen design. The serpentine layout of the guest table, along with the serpentine floral runner, served as counterpoint to the angularity of the de Young architecture.

Deep, rich colors were used to echo the visual mass and heaviness of the de Young structure. Shades and tints of cranberry, merlot and burnt sienna were used to complement the use of copper, and blue-green accents were introduced in the print pieces and guest table floral runner to create unexpected splashes of “rogue” color. Hair and makeup was done to complete the look using bold colors yet soft and airy curls to compliment the circular patterns found throughout the entire design.

Details include the round ceremony canopy, the circular pattern of the ceremony chairs radiating from the main ceremony structure, the specific linen pattern, the way the china was set in a growing circular pattern, the round copper backed escort cards, and the round menus that acted as individualized guest place cards at each place setting. The cake display mirrored the circular china place setting and was decorated by tying in the table linen design. The serpentine layout of the guest table, along with the serpentine floral runner, served as counterpoint to the angularity of the de Young architecture.

Deep, rich colors were used to echo the visual mass and heaviness of the de Young structure. Shades and tints of cranberry, merlot and burnt sienna were used to complement the use of copper, and blue-green accents were introduced in the print pieces and guest table floral runner to create unexpected splashes of “rogue” color. Hair and makeup was done to complete the look using bold colors yet soft and airy curls to compliment the circular patterns found throughout the entire design.

This photo shoot began with a desire to spark the imagination and push the boundaries of concept and design. The venue for the shoot, the de Young Museum, was a springboard for inspiration, both as a creative space (art museum) and architectural statement. The working title aptly became “The Creative Leap”!

As a physical space, the de Young is modern, bold, graphic and dramatic ~ these same adjectives describe the look of the photo shoot and the type of couples that the de Young and the vendors who collaborated on the shoot like to attract.
The various components took their cues from the materials and design elements at the de Young. Copper and perforated metal, used extensively in the design of the museum, were integrated into many of the details, including the ceremony structure, floral jewelry, sweetheart table backdrop, cake table canopy upon which the “floating” cake sat atop, candle holders, print pieces and escort card display.

These hard metal elements were balanced by circular and serpentine motifs that were integral to many of the designs. Details include the round ceremony canopy, the circular pattern of the ceremony chairs radiating from the main ceremony structure, the specific linen pattern, the way the china was set in a growing circular pattern, the round copper backed escort cards, and the round menus that acted as individualized guest place cards at each place setting.
