Flower girls playing in bed. Bridesmaids toasting champagne in matching PJs. A cathedral veil waiting to be placed. A suite full of beautiful girls cheering on our bride. Shelley & Austin’s boho inspired Allied Arts Guild Menlo Park Wedding started off the right way. Joyful conversation and celebration all around.
This day was a long time coming—after 10+ years, all of their family and friends were coming together to see this beautiful Allied Arts Guild Menlo Park Wedding. We got to know Shelley & Austin at their Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay engagement session earlier this year, and it was only a taste of the excitement and beauty that was to come for their Bay Area wedding.
Nothing about Shelley & Austin is traditional, and they like it that way. Their boho inspired Allied Arts Guild Menlo Park wedding featured trendy bridesmaids dresses, custom suits, unique wedding flowers and floral arrangements, stunning coordination, delicious food and desserts, and the cutest flower girls and ring bearer. This Angela Sue bride and groom love their families, so they had both their sisters and their families walk down the aisle before Shelley’s father gave her away.
Shelley & Austin: it was an absolute privilege to get to be your Menlo Park Wedding Photographers for your Bay Area Allied Arts Guild Wedding. We are cheering you on and fully believe that you two are going to rock at marriage. We are praying for you, and are so thankful to have had the honor of celebrating the last ten years and looking forward to the next ten years of the Wilsons!
What a gem! Allied Arts Guild is nestled in the luxury fairytale neighborhoods near Stanford University in Menlo Park.

We were so lucky to work with the dream team for Shelley & Austin’s Allied Arts Guild Wedding. If you’re planning your Bay Area Wedding at Allied Arts Guild, the Stanford Park Hotel was the perfect getting ready location for photos, and it’s a five minute drive from Allied Arts Guild. Speaking of Allied Arts Guild, this Menlo Park wedding venue is basically an Italian Villa in the middle of the Bay Area. It’s gorgeous. Shelley wore a stunning boho inspired mermaid wedding gown from Lovers Society, and Austin looked handsome and dapper in his custom suit from Hugo Boss. The two sealed the deal with custom rings from the wonderful folks at Blue Nile Diamond.
Cera Singley Events provided perfect day-of coordination and wedding planning for this boho inspired bride. She’s amazing—I’m telling you: dream team. The beautiful cross-backed wooden chairs and more amazing wedding rentals came from Danny Thomas Party Rentals, one of our faves for Bay Area Weddings. The girls and our Angela Sue bride were given the royal treatment for wedding hair and wedding makeup by Loren Sartain from Primp Hair and Makeup. Our sweet friend, Nicole, of Orange Blossom’s Florals outdid herself with these boho inspired, earthy floral arrangements for stunning wedding flowers and decorations. She is a master of repurposing arrangements, too!
Let me tell you friends, having live musicians is a game changer. If you’re looking for a romantic, intimate feel for your Bay Area wedding, Corelli Strings Trio is amazing! The sound of those strings just can’t beat the best concert speakers. But after they left for the evening, Denon & Doyle raised the roof as Shelley & Austin’s Bay Area wedding DJ. Shelley happens to be an amazing baker, so her dessert spread just had to stand out. Thanks to Cocola Bakery, a Bay Area wedding cake and dessert baker, went above and beyond with an incredible array for a wedding dessert spread.
