Classic Wedding Styling + Inspiration – The Big Fake Wedding at the San Francisco Mint

All about simplicity and elegance, The Big Fake Wedding held at The San Francisco Mint is the epitome of classic wedding styling inspiration for the modern bride! 2 weeks ago brides from across the city gathered at the historic mint, the perfect backdrop for this exclusively black and white mood. Captured by Clara Rice Photography, Morgan Leigh Photo and Grier Cooper Photography, we are delighted to show off the latest in the stunning BFW events popping up around the country.
Let’s talk about the venue for a moment, because we can’t get past those gorgeous large white beams, adding contrast and drama to the understated design. While it may have lacked color and pop, it wasn’t lacking in edge!
Some of the many noteworthy elements of the night was the intricate bridal gown provided by The Bridal Vault, the unique glass invitations and table styling, the the charcuterie library, and the fun gelato scooter by Cafe Apae!
The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional vow renewal ceremony, light bites (think the ultimate wedding cake available to feast on!) and a dance-party reception. The wedding guests are brides (and grooms!) to be, who get to truly experience the wedding vendors in action and discover for themselves true inspiration for their day.
We just had to include this inspiration board given to the vendors before the event – note the beautiful minimalism and understated design. Now go ahead and drool over the photos from the BFW SF with us, keeping these tones + textures in mind!
