ginkgo fall wedding | SAN FRANCISCO

The concept was derived from a place of admiration for the beautiful ginkgo tree, which has been around for millions of years and highlight the changing of the seasons in a dramatic way as their leaves turn from vibrant green to ochre each fall. Drawing from their ephemeral beauty and unique shape, floral designer Amanda Vidmar Design and stylist Ruby & Rose wanted to design a table that felt elegantly minimal, yet allowed the texture and impact of the foliage to shine through.

“The table was set with unglazed Hasami porcelain plates, honeyed glassware, and a lightly textured linen. An arrangement of ginkgo, maple, rose gold lisianthus, mauve hellebore, and honey-dijon garden roses in a simple ceramic vessel highlighted each flower’s abstract form.

We chose a delicate, free-flowing dress for our bride, and kept makeup natural with an unfussy, tousled braid. Keeping with the naturalistic and seasonal vibe, she carried a bouquet of fall greenery and blooms.”

I’m so thrilled to share these images, which were recently featured over at Wedding Sparrow! Hope you all enjoy!
