A Classic, Natural-Looking Wedding at Terra Gallery in San Francisco, California

With no specific theme in mind, Chelsea Derrick (29 and a software engineer) and Chris Conner (30 and a neurosurgeon) chose the large industrial space

With no specific theme in mind, Chelsea Derrick (29 and a software engineer) and Chris Conner (30 and a neurosurgeon) chose the large industrial space at Terra Gallery in San Francisco, California, for their nuptials, with views of the Bay Bridge that truly embodied the city's charm. Lisa Feldman Design guided Chelsea and Chris through the planning process, settling on a natural palette of green and brown with pops of pink. The Terra Gallery lived up to its name, with modern art hanging from the walls, molding a creative space filled with natural-looking flowers—from the foliage chandelier speckled with ivory blooms to the centerpieces filled with leafy greens and lilies of the valley. Guests sat at wooden farm tables draped with ivory runners, where they enjoyed a menu custom-made by Chelsea and Chris that reflected their love for food (including Tex-Mex, one of their favorites). We loved watching the details come together for this natural-style wedding, including Chelsea's look: a classic white dress with an embellished bodice, with white blooms woven into her elegantly braided updo. A tip from Chelsea: "I made vendor selections with personality in mind. I was able to let things go, and the day turned out much better for it."

"My dad took me shoe shopping, and I ended up with a stunning pair of white Jimmy Choo shoes," Chelsea says. "He's not exactly a shoe-shopping kind of fellow, but we had a blast looking at some of the more avant-garde options."
Chelsea let her bridesmaids pick out their dress style, with the only requirements being floor-length and made of luminescent taffeta. They all followed the color scheme filled with natural hues wonderfully, especially when paired with their overflowing bouquets.
Meaganne McCandes styled Chelsea's hair into a low side bun. Chelsea wanted this style to avoid odd angles in photos and, at the same time, easily wear a veil. Their florist provided white lilies and lilies of the valley to weave into the elegant updo.
During the ceremony, Chelsea and Chris stood under a natural chandelier made of leaves with ivory bloom accents. The decoration went with the many other natural-looking arrangements, from the bridal bouquet to the dining table centerpieces.
Guests received white ceremony programs speckled with small circle designs on the top and bottom of the stationery. The center of the program read in pink text "The wedding ceremony of Chelsea & Chris" along with their wedding date.
Chelsea held an overflowing bouquet that embodied a natural feel. The arrangement included white calla lilies, lilies of the valley, scabiosa pods and an abundant amount of greenery.
The ceremony took place inside Terra Gallery in San Francisco, California, where Chelsea and Chris stood on the hardwood floors surrounded by romantic white candles. A chandelier made up of leafy greens and ivory blooms hung from above.
Chelsea and Chris stood outside against a yellow wall backdrop, with the city of San Francisco, California, surrounding them. Chelsea and Chris knew they wanted their venue to highlight the city, where Chelsea lived throughout their engagement.
Chelsea and Chris stood in the middle of their wedding party, dressed in a combination of neutral colors. The bridesmaids wore floor-length dresses in different necklines, which they picked to best suit their personality and style. The groomsmen matched Chris and wore black tuxedos paired with black ties.
After the ceremony, the industrial space inside Terra Gallery in San Francisco, California, was transformed for the reception. Long wooden farm tables draped with white linens seated guests for an evening's meal, filled with various types of cuisine—including Tex-Mex, which Chelsea and Chris absolutely loved.
Light brown escort cards depicted names of guests, along with symbols that corresponded with dining tables. A box filled with green stones held the cards up, arranged neatly in rows for friends and family.
With the help of her bridal consultant, Chelsea found the perfect dress. The strapless white gown designed by Martina Liana embodied an elegant style, thanks to the beaded embellishments that accented the bodice.
Chris and his groomsmen pinned a white calla lily and lily of the valley boutonniere pinned to the lapel of his black tuxedo. The arrangement matched Chelsea's bouquet, incorporating both flowers into the natural-looking mix.
Lilies of the valley, scabiosa pods, dusty miller and a mix of leafy greens made up the centerpieces that decorated dining tables at the reception. Candles placed inside glass holders added a romantic glow.
At the reception at Terra Gallery in San Francisco, California, pink and white cupcakes were displayed on top of a tiered tower. Guests also took advantage of the other sweets, including doughnuts, root beer floats and milkshakes.
Chelsea and Chris exited the reception that took place at Terra Gallery in San Francisco, California, where friends and family lined up on both sides of them and held sparklers in celebration of their marriage.
