Real Weddings: Northern California Romance

May 23, 2011

Isn't there just something about a real wedding that makes you melt inside? We are happy to introduce our first real wedding on Pink Blossom List. Below is an interview with Nancy Liu Chin, the talented floral designer of this real wedding.

Why is Kristy and Chris' wedding one of your favorite all time weddings?  

NLC:  I love true romance.  And this wedding reflects a couple who are madly in love.  The way they look together, their body language shows how into each other they are.
And who doesn't love a man willing to wear a kilt on his wedding day?

What are some of your favorite details from this wedding?

NLC:  Gosh - I love the fact that they kept the Marin Headlands authentic.  Adding just a few details to really transform the simplicity of the space into something warm and elegant.
The chandelier for the ceremony was one of my favorite ideas and I love that Lisa the planner and the couple embraced it.  That was just a beautiful focal point and enhanced the ceremony without doing too much.  
When Kristy wanted to have branches incorporated into the design, she basically said, "go for it".  Having a client who truly trusts you is rewarding.  

I recall that the week of the wedding, the floral resources had the most amazing branches.  The combination of the blossoming branches with the red, fiery ranunculus was insanely gorgeous.
Though I don't always like primary colors, this was definitely one of those weddings that I loved for it's great use of bold colors with subtle neutrals.

Any other comments?

NLC:  Another thing that about Marin Headlands that stood out for me is the mismatching chairs.  To me it adds to the feel of the space, it's vintage, it's authentic.  So glad the couple chose to use the furniture and yet it looks refreshingly today.

Love how these liquor bottle are both decorative and functional- so understated.

The couple incorporated their favorite music and set the mood with a Beatles tribute band.

Thanks to Greg Slick and Jesse Leake from Once Photography for the fabulous images and to Nancy for some great insight!
