Amy + Logan met in the men’s clothing department at Nordstrom while Amy was working there as a stylist… So, we weren’t surprised when they were dressed to the NINES. And, coolest part — Amy actually found her planner + designer, Elise of Brannan Events, from a previous Green Wedding Shoes feature (you can find it here: Pantone’s Greenery Inspired this Glamorous Styled Shoot). Since Amy wanted to emulate the design of that editorial, but with a twist, a ton of the original creative team got to be involved, including: The Poffs, and Tumbleweed Floral Truck!
As Amy + Logan live in Berkeley, they knew they wanted to tie the knot in the iconic city of San Francisco. Their ceremony was held at the historical Saints Peter and Paul Church and their reception at The Pearl, had a modern industrial twist!
Let’s take a peek at how all the GWS magic came together in the photos snapped by The Poffs!
Those Bella Belle shoes are a DREAM.
The design was focused around a fun, yet neutral color palette with romantic Old World details and a touch of industrial influence.
Anemones + peonies were the focal point of this creamy bouquet Tumbleweed Floral Truck crafted. Plus, tons of textured greenery, for good measure, of course!
Dig Logan’s dapper look? It’s from Tailors’ Keep!

How’s this for a fun wedding exit?!
We wanted to have a mix of traditional and modern elements for our wedding. Having two venues — our ceremony in a Catholic church and our reception in an industrial loft — helped us achieve both ideas.
How darling is this classic getaway car with all the greenery? LOVE!
The Pearl has a gorgeous rooftop space, making the perfect location for cocktail hour + golden hour photos!
After our traditional first dances, we had a surprise Indian dance performance. It was a unique way to incorporate Amy’s culture and get everyone on the dance floor. The room immediately filled up with energy and everyone was having fun watching and dancing along.
The rest of their reception was on the main level of The Pearl, which features a suspended topiary and amazing art installations by local artists!
Take a look at that zigzag formation!
The color palette consisted of white and sage, with pops of navy and kumquat orange! Amy wanted a lot of organic texture, so Brannan Events & Design stitched linen + gauze table runners from La Tavola.
Floral plates from Casa De Perrin lined the table and added a sort of Old World feeling.
A jazz band set the scene for the most epic, rooftop cocktails… and they had an oyster bar! A+L surprised all their guests with an Indian dance group that “crashed” the wedding — to kick start the dancing!
Ask your family what is important to them and try to incorporate their ideas. They have been looking forward to this day just as long as you have and their love and support is very important during this process.
Taste Catering crafted this refined cake. How darling is the gold foil?
We absolutely adore this combination of traditional and modern… and the fact that Amy got connected with so many of her vendors through GWS!
