Real Weddings: Amy + Brent

:

I know lots of you are planning fall weddings so here is some inspiration for you! Amy and Brent were married 11.1.08 and the uber-talented Library member Jessamyn Harris was kind enough to share their Halloween-inspired San Francisco wedding with us!

Amy and Brent did a wonderful job blending Halloween/Dia de los Muertos elements with pumpkins and fall-themed colors and textures to create a beautiful event that had just the right amount of “theme”.  Throw in a vintage vibe and you have a completely unique celebration.

Amy is just gorgeous and I agree with Jessamyn – she has a fabulous silent-film-star quality about her!

Their venue, (1 Fort Mason in San Francisco) is absolutely stunning – it is an old officer’s club from WWII and fit Amy and Brent’s wedding perfectly.

Amy and Brent are from Vancouver, so a little rain did nothing to dampen their spirits.

Amy wore gorgeous blue shoes as her “something blue”.  I don’t think I’m going to tire of the colored shoe trend any time soon – me loves.

Love all of these portraits that Jessamyn captured – especially those with the beautiful chandelier!

Amy and Brent spiced up their pumpkin decor in a few ways.  First, they glued glitter on to some of their pumpkins for a little bit of sparkle and pizzazz:

They also carved their wedding cake silhouette into one of the jack-o-lanterns.  SO precious!

During the toasts, Brent’s best man surprised Amy’s bridesmaids with a photo of the three ladies in high school. Love it!

Sibby’s Cupcakery created all of the desserts – love the Dia de los Muertos bride and groom topper and the skull and crossbones icing detail.

  1. I love the idea of colored shoes, but I’m planning on wearing a short dress (tea-length) and I think that colored shoes would be a distraction from the gown and myself…any suggestions for cute shoes that won’t be an eyesore??

  2. This looks like a fantastic wedding. I’m totally right there with you on the colored shoe thing- love it! My favorite part about these photos (other than how gorgeous they are) is how they really captured the love between Amy and Brent. You can see it in every picture, which, after all, is the whole point of the wedding, isn’t it? Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Such a beautiful wedding! I really like those cupcake stands. Anyone know where to get them or how to make them?

    @megan not sure if you could DIY them but you could certainly try if you got tiered sizes of white trays. there is a DIY post here about creating dessert trays. it’s a bit different than this but it might inspire you!
