I kind of think of an elopement as the ultimate romantic adventure, right? And what better day to elope, than Valentine’s Day! I love this super romantic styled shoot that Frances from Charmed Events Group dreamt up for the occasion. It’s the story of two East Coast Hampton socialites who want to escape the gossip of their town and decide to escape to San Francisco for an elopement, surrounded by only their closest friends. The two recurring themes of the shoot are “You and Me & Me and You”, and “CHECK, you’re my soul MATE” (play on chess – checkmate). Love, love! The style of the shoot is very East Coast chic with lots of lace, pearls, urns, glass and candles galore! Thanks so much to Gladys Jem Photography for the photos.
The elopement took place at the Nimitz Mansion in San Francisco.
Love her pink wedding dress + pink striped bow tie made from this GWS Bow Tie DIY :) Beautiful bouquet from Poppy’s Petalwork.
Such a romantic setting for an intimate ceremony…
Love the handmade lace chandelier in the lounge area.
Their dessert bar by Sweet Luna Desserts had meringue pies, french macarons, buttercream cake, a “cake made out of flowers”, cream puffs, coconut cupcakes + mini pink cupcakes. There were framed lace + pearls as works of art hung above the dessert bar.
The night ended with a midnight rendezvous for the couple on a blanket surrounded by candles, playing midnight chess + a late night snack tray…
Thanks so much to all the following vendors for sharing their talents with us! And a big Happy Valentine’s Day to all you lovelies! Hope you are spending the day with the one you love…
