Frida Kahlo de Rivera was a Mexican painter who was best known for her self-portraits, and her work which has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form. Considered one of Mexico’s greatest artists, Frida Kahlo began painting after she was severely injured in a bus accident. Kahlo later became politically active and married fellow communist artist Diego Rivera in the 1920’s.
Her artful use of bold, vibrant and festive colors was a true inspiration not just to myself, but to my clients, Kristina Quiñones & Danny Miller, both married recently at Mission Dolores Basilica followed by a grandiose Wedding Reception at The Julia Morgan Ballroom. And from this blossomed a spectacular transformation of the venue bursting with a palate of red, orange, pink, purple, turquoise and gold. These stunning images were captured by the keen eye of Clane Gessel with Clane Gessel Photography. Be on the lookout for my forthcoming blog on KRISTINA & DANNY’s spectacular Wedding, with amazing images from their Wedding Photographers, Amanda Lopez and Trevor Traynor of Amanda Lopez Photography.
