An Elegant, Modern Wedding at San Francisco Ferry Building in San Francisco, California
rn Usually filled with busy vendors and shoppers, the San Francisco Ferry Building in San Francisco, California, was transformed into an intimate space for this elegant wedding with a modern twist. Courtney Dean (29 and a health care business manager) and Patrick Hawkins (31 and a lawyer) shared special memories making trips to the marketplace, where stone-tiled floors and high archways lined with lightbulbs contributed to an overall contemporary look. White flowers, clean linens and romantic candles shaped an elegant ambience, from the tall white calla lily arrangements that lined the ceremony aisle to the gray-covered dining tables accented with white lit candles. Courtney's wedding dress blended in perfectly with the visual accents of the wedding decor—a stunning ivory Matthew Christopher gown with a sweetheart neckline and accents of beads and lace. Guests sat at dining tables decorated with lush hydrangeas, orchids and calla lily centerpieces, surrounded by glowing candles and mirror boxes that created a modern twist. We loved the ivory escort cards, programs and menus that paid homage to San Francisco through landmark designs, such as cable cars, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Ferry Building itself.
