It was Natasha and Jeff’s wish to have a wedding that focused heavily on family and friends. As many of their guests had traveled to San Ramon in order to attend the wedding, the couple remembered the most amazing part of their day as just being able to enjoy the celebration with the guests. Choosing beautiful venue – The Bridges Golf Club- to host their celebrations, this bride’s wish was to have a W-day that is simple, elegant, and very dramatic. The venue provided black tablecloths, silver charger plates, and I needed to compose the gorgeous red flowers that would highlight the wedding room with a view of the hills in the distance.
Natasha’s choice of bright colors was influenced by her taste, and she decided on a styling concept that focused on red roses. The red roses, flute vases, and crystal garlands all contributed to a feeling of elegance. Silver curly willow branches and white calla lilies flying above the tall red roses gave a touch of a modernity wedding to centerpieces, as did the arrangements on the rectangular tables – runners of low centerpieces alternated with floating candles.
The inspiration gallery for the classy and dramatic wedding:
Natasha’s Bridal bouquet has a very classy cascading (a/k/a teardrop) shape. The color proportion that the bride asked me to follow is 80% of white colors and only 20% of red. Flower choice here is mostly calla lilies and some red roses. For the adornments and accessories for the wedding bouquet, we chose scattered crystals and some crystal pins that to nestle among the flowers and complete the expensive look of the bridal bouquet.
The handle is also nicely decorated with silver ribbon and a brooch.

The ceremony was short with very few formalities, and the guests enjoyed the warm sunny day under the huge tent above them. Natasha thought ahead and wisely ordered a shade canopy for her guests to sit under.
The beautiful draped white wedding canopy was decorated with flowers for the side poles – small round arrangements with prolonging calla lilies to repeat the whole floral concept. The background of the canopy is crystal curtains.

Afterward, the cocktail hour began white Natasha and Jeff enjoyed a few private moments while having photos taken.
I took a few little video clips of the setup with the reception flowers set on the tables, glasses are with iced water and dinner about to start.
Besides rectangular tables with rose runners and floating candles, our other concept was the tall red rose centerpieces set onto flute clear glass vases, complimented by hanging crystals -on the round tables.
The sweetheart table has beautiful round centerpieces as well.
There were many more details in the room – the flowers on the mantle and the cocktail tables on the veranda, etc which created the whole complete look of a dramatic red roses wedding.
