Filoli Historic House & Garden Wedding Ideas in San Francisco

This shoot was inspired by the European look of the beautiful Gardens of Filoli in the city of San Francisco where beautiful architecture, secluded colorful gardens and water features are the main ornate of the property. You feel transported to a magical place and can connect with nature as soon as you step into it.

With the idea of bringing something organic and flowy as the principal vision, we played with mainly neutral colors and added a touch of strawberry reds to it. Elements like baskets, benches and fruit preserves were also used to enhance the idea of the natural/earthy inspiration.

A 3 tier cake with painted flowers was displayed. A serpentine table with all the details was at the center of the gardens to welcome the guests for a special alfresco celebration, inviting them to enjoy the space and the view.

The bride wore a Monique Lhuillier gown full of floral appliqué details.
