There have been tons of April showers in San Francisco recently, so I am delighted to showcase this bright sunny, garden wedding today.  So, what really makes this wedding stand out to me is the way the bride and her planners, Pink Rock Events, put together the color palette. They choose one color for each event and went all in.  And, when I say all in, I mean totally, 100% ALL in. It’s a new concept that I simply love, and when you see the results I am sure you will agree!

Gauri was very open minded and really thought outside of the box. Which fits perfectly with our style. We thrive on pushing the envelope and  creating one of a kind weddings. We wanted Gauri's wedding to be clean, modern, feminine 


yet make sure the mandap doesn't over power the couple.  We knew we didn't want to go with the traditional reds, creams and gold. So... We choose yellow and white! Yellow is a very cheerful and energetic color which reminds us of Gauri and Nik's personality.   


We used clean lines and a perfect square structure to give the mandap its modern feel. We always wanted to uses butterflies on a mandap with out making it too cheesy so we used yellow cymbidium orchids to mimic that look. Enchanted Florist did an amazing job hand pinning each orchid to the white chiffon fabric to create a fluttering butterfly effect. We also used ribbons to give the mandap its feminine feel.  Ribbons are so simple and rarely thought of when it comes to decor. Roses, dahlia, cymbidium orchids, hydrangeas were used to complete the look. A soft swirl pattern using dozens of yellow rose petals down the aisle really gave us the wow effect we were going for. The yellow truly complimented the gorgeous green lawn and the beautiful blue ocean.
