Delicate Inspiration at The Legion of Honor

Fine Art Wedding Calligraphy // Sarah Ann Design

Delicate details, regal architecture, and an ethereal quality in every photo… this exquisite styled shoot speaks to my heart in too many ways. It was a pleasure to send my paper pretties to San Francisco along with Ivory and Vine Event Co. and Stephanie Brazzle Photography, where they created pure magic together at The Legion of Honor.

From the bride’s romantic upswept hairstyle to the gown’s fine lace, every aspect of this bridal look captured a feminine essence and intimate feel. With accents like an organic headpiece and dainty shoes, any bride is sure to find inspiration in this stunning wedding-day style.

The architectural details still have me swooning: regal columns set the stage for a grand occasion, accented by the ceiling’s intricate patterns. And I marvel at the stories held within these walls. The Legion of Honor, originally built as a replica of the Palais de la Légion d’Honneur, serves as a fine arts museum. I have to wonder—how many treasures have entered this historic building? How many masterpieces housed within this grand architecture… and how many people who have viewed them? or fallen in love here? I love the opportunity to shoot at a location brimming with history, culture, and – above all – stories.

As for the invitation suite… I think you’ll find that it, too, captures a story with a delicate character. Completely hand-lettered, this delicate suite sits on handmade paper with deckled edges. Subtle watercolor washes complement the fine art wedding calligraphy, and hint at the artistic nature of the venue. With an illustration of The Legion of Honor, vintage stamps, and textured place cards—this suite is perfectly suited to the delicate bride.
