Faux Wedding: Elegant Spring Table

This beautiful faux wedding comes to us from some of my very favorite people! Laurie Arons (my very own wedding planner) has teamed up with chef Tyler Florence to create some of the most elegant and delicious weddings around, and this elegant shoot at San Francisco’s Flood Mansion is just a little taste at what they can do.

I love this gray and yellow ikat tablecloth (and those fun pom-pom trimmed napkins are the same ones I had at my wedding)!

That’s Laurie and Tyler!

    We love the patterned table clothes! The grey and yellow together are fabulous!

  • Kristen says:

    Loving the yellow and grey color palette! my favorite of the season by far!

  • One of the best views in San Francisco, and I love that it’s a school as well during the day. This whole look is so sweet — and how amazing to have Tyler Florence be the chef at a wedding — he’s so talented and extremely nice!

  • The menu sounds incredible. And the photography makes everything look sublime. If this is the faux version I’d love to be a guest at the real thing. It would obviously be a night to remember.

    The photography gives the setting such a dream-like quality. Very romantic!

  • Thanks everyone for your nice comments, I had the best team, a beautiful venue, and Tyler Florence, how lucky was I? And thank you so much Kathryn for the story, it is always an honor to be included.

  • Robin MacRaeq says:

    The menu is fabulous and the tables are stunning. Love the bouquet and the lemons! A beautiful example of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

  • I would like to find out where you rented the tablecloths from? My son is getting married this summer would love these for the rehearsal dinner.
