As much as we photographers love a traditional wedding at an incredible venue with painstakingly prepared design elements, intimate nuptials at City Hall will always hold a special place in our hearts. I can’t make this statement enough; we have a beautiful City Hall in San Francisco. When you consider the cost of getting married in such a beautiful space, well, let’s face it…it’s a deal.
Chloe and Andrei wanted to have a traditional wedding with their friends and family but with intense work schedules, they knew they wouldn’t be able to do so for another year or two. Not wanting to wait two years though, they decided on an intimate elopement at City Hall until they could have a big party with their loved ones. I love photographing these weddings. It’s like getting back to basics. Just two people, committing to spend the rest of their lives together. I also love how getting married at City Hall allows a couple to embrace their style. Chloe and Andrei just have this confidently classic style. For her something old, Chloe wore a beautifully delicate brocade that belonged to her Grandmother. Andrei was also passionate about having film photography…so a million bonus points to him!
