Chandelier beauty – Part 2

Many of our followers enjoyed our first chandelier beauty post, so we continue on today.

Let’s explore the second floor a bit, shall we?

Hello there, Ballroom!

The six chandeliers hang from the ceiling to provide light, beauty and and grandeur to the space.

Sometimes its challenging to take in the details many feet below, but look at the signature quatrefoil on the chains and the elegant draping over the lights.

We are grateful for these beautiful pieces to light our spaces.

Next time you see them, be sure to take in some of their special elements.

Beautiful moments

Today, we are swooning over these gorgeous images in black & white.

The couple’s friends and family exuded love, happiness and joy for the special day.

Chandelier beauty

If you have visited the building, it is apparent that Julia Morgan had a gift for elegant details.

Let’s explore the first floor a bit, shall we?

How pretty is this chandelier present in both the Drawing Room & Theater?

The curved lines and quatrefoil at the top are elegantly French.

This chandelier is also a stunning focal point and welcoming fixture in the Lobby.

Lucky for us (and you!), we have 4 of them to create a warm, inviting feel.

Where the light from the chandeliers doesn’t reach, we have natural light and elegant sconces.

We hope you enjoyed seeing some up close and beautiful images from our treasured building.

Fun with fitness

Did you know that the Club offers fitness classes?

Keeping your mind, body and spirit in tune is possible with our Aquatics & Tai Chi classes.

Not only do you get a great workout, you take in the treasured beauty of the building.

Aquatics Exercise is offered on Wednesdays from 4pm – 5pm and is $10/class for Club members and $15/class for non-members.

It is a great workout that is easy on the joints, low impact and great for toning.

Back into the routine at the Club is Tai Chi, led by instructor Quinn Walker.

Tai Chi is a great way to lower blood pressure, improve breathing and increase wellness while obtaining a state of calm and clarity.

Classes are offered the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month at 4pm and bookings are available on Eventbrite at only $10/class for Club members and $15/class for non-members.  Wear comfortable, loose clothing and enjoy the benefits of health, fun and martial arts.

Special wedding offer

Are you in the process of deciding what your big day will be?  Consider Fall or Winter 2016 and enjoy a special offer (and peek at these stunning images for a little inspiration!)

One of the great things to savor are the shorter days, which lets you up the ante on the romance factor and take advantage of great lighting. Want to see what we mean?  Read on.

Our market lights strung on the Terrace give so much warmth.

 Then, the architectural details get to shine in a big way.

Couples enjoy a moment to themselves and the natural light gets a chance to really show off.

See what we mean?  Beautiful, indeed.  Now for the fun part.
