Into the Woods for Valentines


We are going into the woods for Valentines with this sweet and romantic midsummer’s night dream woodland themed shoot featured on Styled Unveiled today!


An excerpt from Style Unveiled:

This Midsummer Night’s Dream in San Francisco was styled by Cindy Danbom of Belle Notte Events.  Kendra and Paul eloped in France and do not have many pictures from their wedding. This styled shoot gave our real life couple the images they were dreaming of.  Lost in the woods of San Francisco’s preserved parks lies our dreamy location for this design.  The lush ivy and tall trees gave the perfect backdrop to our rich and romantic tablescape that embraces the hues of the foliage and enhances the luscious berry tones of our dramatic setting.  Wildflower Linen added the drama with their pink and coral table linens, green silk napkins and the so beautiful light Giselle Champagne tulle chair covers that give the impression the table is floating.


We chose to feature the deep and romantic berry tones to add warmth to the forest.  The varieties of hues from cream garden roses to rich dark fuchsia peonies are perfectly demonstrated in our ombre flowerwall, the perfect portrait back drops for any ceremony.

The whimsical dessert station featured delicate desserts blended perfectly into our woods.  The theme of the shoot was to capture our bohemian chic bride in a nook of the city you wouldn’t expect, a fairytale in the woods but delivering on all the drama and style San Francisco always offers.


Our elegantly coiffed model Kendra, with long wispy curls and natural make up by Michelle of Skyla Arts, wears not one, but two dresses by Amy Kuschel. Traipsing through the woods barefoot in her effortlessly boho chic way, the River and Birkin dress collections are featured.
