Real Weddings: Elizabeth + Daren


Elizabeth and Daren’s lovely Bay-area wedding was designed around two iconic elements – art nouveau and absinthe.  The theme was carried out through a rich color palette of greens, blues, and antique ivory, hand-painted ironwork centerpieces, lantern place card holders, stationery designed by the bride, and florals full of texture that included dusty miller, garden roses, succulents, fresh herbs, and fiddlehead ferns.  The couple married on Elizabeth’s grandparents’ 56th wedding anniversary at a place dear to Elizabeth’s heart, the Burlingame Country Club, where her family has been members for 50 years.  Thanks to Elizabeth and Lilia Photography for sharing!
