Last month I had the pleasure of working with some of my absolute favorite creative people (Laurie Arons, Max Gill, and Lisa Lefkowitz, to name a few!) to bring this gorgeous photo shoot to life. It was an amazing opportunity to see all of the work that goes on behind the scenes to make something so beautiful happen – and now I get to share it with you! I hope you love it as much as I do…
The dining room of The Fairmont San Francisco Penthouse Suite, with it’s dramatic black and white walls, really set the tone for the shoot. Boldly patterned linens accented with clear glass candlesticks and modern Louis Ghost chairs, were softened by romantic peach and orange centerpieces.
Arrangements included tulips, poppies, roses, ranunculus, clematis and kumquats.
The simply elegant dessert table included a variety of macarons (red velvet, orange blossom, Earl Grey, almond amaretto and Tahitian vanilla) and a two-tier cake with both sugar petals and a real rose. For our model, we chose a look that was classic and romantic, but that could also hold its own in such a dramatic venue: head-to-toe lace plus a full-length veil. The black and white bouquet included poppies, anemones, ranunculus, and lily-of-the-valley.
There were so many amazing photos that I couldn’t stop with one post, so check back in for Part Two in a couple hours! But first, let me give a big shout out to all of the wonderful people who made this shoot happen:
