Montalvo Arts Center, Saratoga, Wedding, California

Montalvo Arts Center is our all time favorite Tuscany-style venue right here in Saratoga California! You don't have to go all the way to Italy! Melody & Jeff were one of the most adorable couple ever - just look at her gorgeous semi-structured ballgown with a french bustle and classic dropped shoulders - complimented by his smart clean-cut tux! Melody & Jeff wanted a wedding full of white and greens! With navy blue pops of her bridesmaids dress and hints of blush and gold through out - Melody & Jeff both come from a traditional american-chinese family so the color "red" is considered a "good luck" color! They wanted to included red in a non-traditional subtle way so we hinted at it in pops of red in their reception floral designed perfectly by Bellevue Floral Co! We highlight their wedding day below with different parts of their wedding that we love, all beautifully captured by the AMAZING Jenny Soi Photography! You don't want to miss this wedding!

Mauve Gold Design

A twist to the traditional blush! How about mauve? 


There is no denying that we see a lot of blush and gold in weddings and style shoots and we can all understand that the classics are never going out of style! But we wanted to do a variation of the popular color scheme and in came gold and mauve! It is definitely the next best thing if not more beautiful. This style shoot collaboration was such a dream with an amazing team of boss ladies! When Jasmine Lee Photography and Make up by Quis brought me on board to design and style this shoot I was only too excited to join!

With Jinza Bridal’s long sleeved lace gown “Bailey” we wanted to create a soft and romantic feel surrounding the movements of the gown which Jasmine caught so beautifully! Make up by Quis styled our model Amanda perfectly with gold and mauve colors and knocked our socks off with her exquisite side braid!

Fingers crossed for San Francisco weather, we tracked up to explore Sutro Baths and set up our dessert table with amazing long flowing linens from Party Crush Studio, a gorgeous hand-painted cake by Ma Petite Maison Cake Design with adorable pale pink stands provided by Julia’s Cake stand Rentals, we also enjoyed yummy macarons from Mommy Macarons, and what style shoot would be complete without an incredible floral designer like Pineapple Petals Studio who showed up with glorious asymmetrical bouquets and centerpiece design brimming with koko’s garden roses and café au lait dahlias! With wedding season overflowing we all only had a week to put together the shoot but can we say everyone pulled through beautifully!

We also cannot stop swooning over details such as the gorgeous stationary and calligraphy from Made by Miller and the delicate jewelry from Atheria Jewelry; perfect for any classic bride! NT Events is so honored to have been a part of this wonderfully feminine shoot and we are so excited to share it with everyone who appreciates beauty and we hope to inspire even more romantics and lovers of yummy lighting and mauve! We hope you enjoy this amazing shoot with Jasmine Lee Photography as much as we loved creating it!

From Jasmine Lee Photography... Our styled shoot was a collaboration of talented artists - When photographing in San Francisco, we tend to get cold and overcast skies. However, the weather worked out perfectly with the sun setting behind the trees casting a beautiful glow of light around our model, Amanda. Amanda was so easy to work with and kept all of us inspired during the entire shoot. We all had a lot of fun creating beauty in San Francisco!
