If you love whimsical, natural, breathtaking arrangements and you aren't following San Francisco's own Studio Mondine on Instagram, give them a follow!
I was thrilled to be connected with Studio Mondine months before our wedding by way of our friend & photographer Josh Gruetzmacher. Being a primarily Bay Area Photographer meant Josh has made connections with other locals in the Wedding Industry. Knowing my asthetic, Josh connected me with Ivanka (one half of the dynamic duo at Studio Mondine), and that was it for me! We quickly started exchanging e-mails & sharing pinterest boards. She even went as far to meet me at our reception venue to have a feel for the space.
I could not contain my excitement when Amanda & Ivanka delivered our bouquets the morning of our wedding day. They were wild & organic, just as I had hoped they'd be. And the hand dyed silk ribbons were a beautiful touch.
Studio Mondine also constructed these beautiful garlands that greeted our guests at the entrance of our reception venue. Little did they know, this was just a taste of the atmosphere Studio Mondine was able to create on the inside..
Before the wedding, I made every effort to collect as many big, beautiful mercury glass vases as I could. Studio Mondine incorporated my finds by assembling four lush arrangements that were distributed throughout the reception venue. Since we were opting for a family style dinner, there wouldn't be room for arrangements at each table. However, these arrangements embodied the exact feel that I was hoping for, creating large, beautiful statement pieces to be admired by all.
I will never forget the feeling of walking into the venue for the first time, seeing the ethereal ambiance Studio Mondine had created, & feeling overwhelmed with gratitude over the beautiful work they had made.
