As 2015 settles in, modern vintage is becoming one of our favorite wedding styles of the year. Nothing compares to vintage romance, and when paired with contemporary elements and clean lines, the wedding album is guaranteed to be breathtaking. Catherine and Chika’s San Francisco wedding was held at a log cabin, which is pretty much the coolest venue we can think of. Photographer Madeline Druce captured the most captivating images of the impeccable wedding styling, as well as the lovely and dark wedding portraits of the newlyweds in the nearby greenery.
Catherine and Chika
The Prisidio Log Cabin, San Francisco, California
We had a vintage modern log cabin wedding. The flowers were blush, peach, reds and cream, and the bridesmaid dresses were navy.
The ceremony itself was my absolute favorite part of the day. It was breathtaking to walk down the aisle with my dad with the view of San Francisco behind all of our guests that came from near and far to take part in our day. Standing with my husband saying our vows to each other is a moment I’ll never forget.
My favorite part of the decor was the light box my husband built to hold our escort cards. The escort cards were vintage slides of bay area urban and nature images.
The Couple Recommends:
All of our vendors were excellent. Our photographers were patient, professional and took the most gorgeous pictures. Our coordinator was organized made every detail turn out just right. The paella was delicious, the DJs played a great selection of soul tunes on vinyl, and the flowers were just amazing.
