San Francisco City Hall wedding with marigolds

Marigold + mint bouquet, gold sneakers, scarves, dancing… this wedding had so many sweet elements! In addition to growing their own bouquet, Bill and Katherine gifted their guests marigold seeds (I got some, too!) which connects their special day to future blooms in the gardens of their community. In addition, marigolds are good companion plants: they protect a wide variety of plants from pests and harmful weeds. If you plant a marigold beside most any garden vegetable, that vegetable will be healthier. What a lovely metaphor.

San Francisco City Hall wedding with Classic Cable Car tour to Fort Point and Baker Beach

A perfect spring day graced this wedding that began at San Francisco City Hall and adventured around the city in a Classic Cable Car, stopping at Fort Point and Baker Beach. What is better than dancing on a trolley car, drinking Veuve Clicquot while simultaneously taking in the view of the Golden Gate Bridge? Not much! Felicitations à Anna et Rabea!

This wedding party included furry friends! Jillian and Matthew brought along their kids, by which I mean their dogs. They dressed up for the fun, and I was equal parts laughing and barking (to get the dog's attention) I love shoots like this!
