From our amazing photographer Nathalie Cheng:
“Inspired by the colorful homes and romantic scenery of San Francisco where we call home, Jessica of Blushing Joy Events and I teamed up to create an intimate, vibrant editorial for the modern, city bride.
We were drawn to clean, bright backdrop The Upstairs of Central Kitchen, a San Francisco restaurant that specializes in locally sourced food for a seasonal menu, had to offer. Becca, of Milsom & Bloom, artfully handpicked seasonal florals to reflect the vibrant pops of color one sees when walking through a San Francisco neighborhood. We opted for a clean, modern table setting with a white linen from La Tavola and cafe chairs, reflective of San Francisco’s iconic cafes, that were accented with warm-peach toned tabletop rentals from Seventh Heaven Vintage Rentals and calligraphy name cards by Old City Mailroom. Our bride was beautifully adorned in a romantic Galia Lahav gown from Kinsley James Couture Bridal and Susie Saltzman engagement ring with a romantic updo and makeup by Aimee Artistry. The warm, golden San Francisco light filtering through the windows at The Upstairs was the perfect ending to enjoy a piece of cake delicately prepared by Etta Avenue Cakes…”
Not much of a writer, I’d keep it short here. I was honored to be invited to work on this shoot for the makeup & hair design part. I couldn’t be more excited to be on board after I saw Jessica’s mood board and the line up of talented vendors included. If you want to see some of in-the-making photos of this beautiful bride, check out my Stories. This shoot will remain one of my favorite beauty creations for years to come. Last but not least, this shoot was also featured on Wedding Sparrow, one of the most well-known and artfully curated wedding blogs.
