San Francisco City Hall Wedding: Katie & Tim

Katie & Tim wanted one thing — to have their day completely about them.
Simple, intimate, no fuss.
A few of my favorite things.

As you can see in the images below, it was just that.
A total dream. 
Pure simple perfection.
Just the 3 of us. Their family & friends in the UK. 

I wrote what I loved so much about their day in this preview post, so I’ll leave ya to the photos…

One of my favorite elopements.

Ever.

Thank you, Katie & Tim!

Featured: Style Me Pretty Living & Inspired By This

Can’t believe Christmas is over, and it’s almost a new year. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Wanted to quickly share a couple of features from the past few days…

Yesterday, Katie & Tim’s San Francisco City Hall elopement was featured on Inspired By This. This is one of my favorite elopements EVER which is saying a lot since you know I can’t get enough of city hall. Absolutely adore Katie & Tim and I’m so glad our paths crossed. Going to be sharing more of their wedding soon. Until then, check out the feature here.

San Francisco City Hall Elopement _ Inspired By This Feature

On Christmas eve, Style Me Pretty Living featured a Nordic inspired holiday table shoot that was a collaboration between myself & the lovely Frances of Charmed Events Group. Her inspiration for this shoot came from time she spent in Scandinavia, and I loved all of the white & wooden elements! See more of the feature here.

San Francisco City Hall Elopement: Karla & Andre

Karla reached out to me 6 days before their trip to SF saying,

I am trying to plan a surprise elopement (like…i mean, my fiancé doesn’t know about it. lol)”

Ummm..WHAT?!?

She followed it up with, “We’ve been trying to plan our wedding, but he is a very private person, so I figured we’d have this moment to be ours.”

It all made sense after that. By the way, she told him a couple of days before their ceremony ;)

Turns out, they were coming to SF to celebrate their anniversary. And what better way to celebrate, than to say I do to your best friend of 13 years.

Karla is excited, and absolutely lovely. Andre is sweet, and soft-spoken. During our time together, I saw how perfectly they balanced one another. So happy and thankful she found me just 6 days before their trip, and we were able to connect. Sigh. I just love elopements!

xx

On the day of their 13th year together, they married in foggy San Francisco…

Destination City Hall Elopement: Hannah & Oliver

Oh, Hannah & Oliver.

Sweet, sweet Hannah and Oliver.

These two darlings came from the UK and eloped while on their two week holiday in the states. The day before their elopement, we met up for coffee & toast to get to know each other a bit. We spoke about their travels, how their relationship began, and what they were looking forward to in the future. It was a sweet first meeting, only to be followed by an even sweeter elopement.

Their joy and excitement to be married was the absolute best! As you can see below, Oliver was jumping for joy after their ceremony.

Just the sweetest. Okay, onward…

It’s not everyday that you see a parrot & a surprise singing flash mob at city hall. Only for sweet Hannah & Oliver…

I’ve shot at city hall many times before, but what happened next was a first for me. Upon seeing the empty grand staircase, I instructed Hannah & Oliver to take a seat at the bottom for a few portraits. Seconds later, a group of people came up behind them. At this point I thought to myself, “Don’t they see that I’m taking pictures?”

Moments after, they busted out in a cappella, Bruno Mars’ “Marry you” We had no clue what was happening, as you can see in their reactions. It was the most random, fun, and wonderful surprise for Hannah and Oliver. Talk about one hell of a memory to take home to the UK with them.
