I have a ton of wedding posts to share with you all, so to avoid a complete inundation of them I decided to spread them out a bit! Today I wanted to share with you where I spent the night before and after we got married. I am a huge fan of The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco and tell all my visiting friends to stay there – it is such a beautiful place and the price isn’t so bad (a little more than Hilton, quite a bit less than Ritz Carlton). I encourage all of you to go and if you’re in the Bay Area, have high tea there. Warning – picture heavy post ahead!
This was the decor in the elevator bank on our floor – the whole hotel has a “Chinoiserie” decor to it that I absolutely love. I’d love to use a lot of inspiration in our own home one day.
The living area of our room – we stayed in “The Diplomat Suite.”
Extension of the living room…it was huge! We got ready here.
Me after I arrived – Zara dress, Louboutin shoes, Aritizia sweater, Hermes bag.
Kitty chair details! I was in love with this..
All the various chinoiserie touches…
A telescope we used to spy on boats in the harbor, and a gorgeous view..
I really wish this picture wasn’t so blurry – this was what was waiting for us in our suite – this entire sculpture is made out of chocolate!! The green part was chocolate chips, the orange was white chocolate. The whole thing was delicious except for the blackest parts which must have been 90% or so dark chocolate because MAN were they bitter.
A little shot of the bathroom…I spent some time reading here on its edge and appreciating the view!
Finally, I wanted to leave you all with a really funny photo from the morning when we were all getting ready in the room. One of my bridesmaids is in medical school and had frantically flown in really early on the morning of the wedding – she is super busy and apparently Fedex messed up her order of silver shoes for the bridesmaid dresses. Panicked and with no time, she showed up to the door of the suite with a shoe box in hand, exclaiming “I AM SO SORRY!!” as she stumbled in. She opened the shoebox and revealed the only replacement shoes she could find that were “kind of” close to silver – a pair of white and chrome sandals she bought for her last clubbing trip to Vegas, which she chose for a “Jetsons” type of Halloween costume.
The rest of us fell on the ground laughing – it was absolutely hilarious. The above is a little preview of what the bridesmaids looked like, and their shoes. Of course nothing matched but the laughter was totally worth it. I’d encourage everybody to find ways to laugh hard before their wedding
Have a fabulous weekend, everybody!
