Gallery: City Hall Weddings

While visiting San Francisco this past weekend, Ashley and I stopped by City Hall—in part because we were eager to visit the site of so many of the beautiful photos that have appeared on this blog! We were anything but disappointed by the reality of this breathtaking public building, and to top it all off, we were even able to watch a lesbian wedding in progress on the grand staircase! On the heels of our visit, it seemed only appropriate to repost a few of the spectacular San Francisco City Hall images from our archives:

Wedding: Ali & Meenoo

From Tara Beth, Ali & Meenoo’s photographer: Ali & Meenoo were married on June 6th of this year in Philadelphia, PA. They shared their vows with a small group of family and friends at The Waterworks museum downtown behind the famous Philadelphia Art Museum. After their tearful ceremony everyone gathered at a lovely Italian restaurant, Giorgio On Pine, for an intimate lunch reception. The overall day was romantic, classic, and full of love!

Engagement: Jen & Anna

From Jen & Anna: Shortly after Jen moved from the Midwest to Seattle, we met through the miracles of technology. On our first date, we took a drizzly walk in Seward Park then shared an entire pizza, which was good clue that we were a match. We met around the time of the 2012 election when Referendum 74, a marriage equality ballot measure, was up for a vote. Our second date ended up being the victory party. We celebrated a historic moment that year, and it didn’t take long for us to know we wanted to exercise our new freedom to marry.

Since Jen is the sentimental one, she got dibs on proposing. She surprised Anna with a horseback ride in the Yakima Valley in central Washington and popped the question. Not wanting to be outdone, Anna proposed to Jen at the Sunrise viewpoint at Mount Rainier with a special inscription in her ring.

These engagement photos were taken by Libby Lewis at Coleman Park Beach along Lake Washington in Seattle. The handsome pooch is our dachshund mix, Sam.

Wedding: Deena & Teal

From Deena and Teal: We held our wedding ceremony and reception at a local country club in Dallas, TX. We later got legally married in NYC, but we wanted to have a ceremony with friends and family present to celebrate with us. We had been together 7 years when we got married, and now we have been together 13 years. We have a wonderful little girl, and are working on the next baby now!

Wedding: Erika & Flora (Chino)

From A Monique Affair’s Chanda, Erika & Flora (Chino)’s wedding planner: Erika and Flora (Chino) were my very first legally wedded couple in California! (My clients were getting married way before it was legal!) YAY! They are an amazingly sweet couple and their wedding was a glamorous black tie event filled with lots of romantic candlelight. The wedding took place at the amazingly beautiful Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley California. The color palette selected for this wedding was old Hollywood: black, white, green and bling. Yes, bling is a color! The details of this wedding included tall pillar altar pieces, a pre-ceremony cocktail hour, romantic sweetheart table, a bling wedding cake table, a guestbook vignette featuring photos of the Erika, Flora (Chino), and their wedding party and mini bottles of Prosecco as favors.

Engagement: Traci & Dominique

From Traci and Dominique’s photographer: Traci contacted me a couple months about doing a sweet portrait session in which, at the end, she proposed to her girlfriend! Having experience with surprise proposals, I said sure! They are a beautiful couple who are in love, and it was the utmost pleasure capturing their love for one another. I’m very honored to tell their love story!
