There is something so timeless and chic about today’s San Francisco wedding from Milou + Olin Photography. With a stunning vintage manor as the backdrop, the romantic florals and elegant details shine. I love the printed linens that add so much character, while still being classic.
Matt grew up in San Francisco, and we’ve lived here for the past five years. We decided we wanted to keep our wedding in the area, but knew that San Francisco has unpredictable weather, so decided to look around the peninsula within driving distance of the city. We wanted a venue that had separate spaces for the cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing, included an outdoor component, and that still had good flow between the spaces. The Kohl Mansion in Burlingame was definitely able to check all of those boxes!
My engagement ring was made from the stone that Matt’s grandmother had in her engagement ring. We had the ring reset so it had a piece of her and also a piece of us. I also had my grandmother’s engagement ring set into a necklace which I wore on our wedding day.
We felt it was really important to work with people who understood us and our style well, and were really fortunate to work with so many amazing vendors who really got us. We also wanted as little stress as possible, and our amazing planner, Janece, was able to keep everything low-stress and really fun throughout the process. We also wanted to include both our mothers in the process, and they were extremely helpful and insightful as we planned!
We realized that the venue had a lot of character, and therefore wanted to keep everything else soft and romantic. We focused on blush, cream colors, and pewter for our main colors.
Our gift table was covered in lace that is from my mother-in-law’s side of the family. Her and her siblings each used it on their wedding days. We were able to layer it on top of one of our blush linens to make it a little bit of our own.
There aren’t words to describe how it feels to have all the people you love in one place. We were able to truly enjoy every minute with each other them throughout the day, and only wished time went slower!
