Boy, do we get warm fuzzies every time we look at this botanical San Francisco wedding with minimalist details. Elegant and refined, Michelle and Kurtis’ day has no shortage of classic romance. Hints of cornflower blue are sprinkled throughout as a largely monochromatic table boasts charm at the reception. And how could we not fall for their outdoor ceremony that looks straight out of a secret garden? Buckle up, ladies and gents, because this gorgeous fete is one you’ll want to remember every detail of!

At the creative helm is Natalie Choi Events, who not only designed the wedding events but the paper goods too! She skillfully executes the “less is more” aesthetic, leaving us with the perfect balance of charming eye candy and a blissfully laidback ambiance.

From the designer, Natalie of Natalie Choi Events: Michelle & Kurtis met during a church event, and they quickly hit it off and started dating soon after. Almost two years later, Kurtis successfully pulled off a surprise proposal in their home city of San Francisco. Kurtis had been dropping (false) hints that he wouldn’t be proposing for another year, so Michelle was absolutely shocked when it happened so much earlier than she had expected!

Lush flowers, delicate lace, elegant script, and a hint of sparkle: all ingredients for a romantic, effortless garden party wedding. A color palette of dusty blues and soft blushes was chosen to complement the light-filled space at Aracely Cafe, a charming venue set on Treasure Island overlooking the San Francisco skyline that was the backdrop of their proposal. We designed their invitation suite with simplicity in mind, choosing an elegant script and using multiple layers of texture to add dimension to their suite: vellum printed with botanical sketches, invitation cards with soft edges, delicate paper twine ties, and a champagne wax seal to secure the linen envelopes. Their flowers were designed in a blushing color palette to complement the fresh greenery around the venue, and were composed of delicate blooms of peony, butterfly ranunculus, and two different shades of garden roses (koko loco and caffe latte). We wanted every element of their wedding day to come together as an effortless garden party, celebrating love and new beginnings while surrounded by friends and family.
