Elegant details

Even for those of us who enjoy the beauty of the Club daily, it is always nice to come across simple reminders of beauty around the venue.

Before you step inside, the elegant touches are ever-present in the flowers carved into the concrete.  Such beauty and talent!

On the first floor & second floors, this animal greets us with a grand stance.

Our architect, Julia Morgan, went to Cal, so word is that this is a bear, paying homage to her Alma Mater, UC Berkeley, just a short walk away.

In the Drawing Room, the elegant mastery continues with an animal and an beautiful flower.

Meet photographer, Danny Dong

In keeping with our wedding, image-loving & beautiful things theme (who are we kidding, we love all of these, all the time), we have some great news to share with you.

Back pedal in time with us to the Summer of 2014.  A beautiful wedding, with bride and groom, Yumi and Kevin, was taking place, and a photographer was there that day that would capture those moments for the lovely bride and groom.  Little did we know the mastery behind his images and the passion in his work.  His ability is one of true talent.

Meet, Danny Dong.

Does it get any more beautiful?

 This pool has been captured countless times, over our decades of existence, but this image sure is something special.

We are in love with this one too.

The Members Lounge here with the brides dress on display.  Stunning.

Candlelight, architecture and the look of love here?

My heart literally skipped a beat at first glance.
