San Fransisco City Hall Wedding: Tiffany and Micah

Tiffany and Micah chose one of the most gorgeous locations on the west coast to have their wedding: City Hall in San Fransisco, CA. They were able to get married in one of the elegant marble corridors, surrounded by friends, family, and their adorable daughter, Sailor. They flew all the way from Seattle to be surrounded by the amazing architecture and timeless cinderella staircase. The San Fransisco City Hall is the perfect place for a more intimate-feeling wedding, but maximum glamour.

I absolutely love flying down to San Fransisco for any excuse I can come up with. My best friend Savannah and her husband live nearby in Alameda, and the food in the city is worth the plane ticket alone. We were able to hit up Chubby Noodle, Barzotto, and the Hunter Pub. Can’t wait til my next trip!

 
 

Pioneer Square Seattle Elopement: Meggie + Joshua

Few things get me as hyped as an urban elopement in the city at golden hour. Seattle is the perfect place to say I do, especially when its just you two! (A RHYME!!) The Pioneer Square neighborhood is home to the best brick walls, vining ivy, and edgy textures. On our way to the courthouse, we had to hit up a little secret spot to get some pictures with the sun over the beautiful Puget Sound. One amazing thing about the courthouse in Seattle is its crazy view of the entire city. There’s even a terrace on the 14th floor that overlooks everything from the Port of Seattle to Smith Tower. I had such a fun afternoon bopping around with these two, I think we all fell even more in love with the city that day!

 
 

Dana Point Intimate Wedding: Jenn & Sam

When your pledge sister from college tells you she’s having her wedding at the absolutely gorgeous Laguna Hills Courthouse, just down the street from Dana Point in Orange County, you get those plane tickets booked ASAP. How can you tell Jenn is my kind of bride? See below: TWO wedding jumpsuits, a bottle of Dom Perginon doing it’s own boudoir session with her grandmother’s vintage pearls, red cup toasts in the bridal suite, and a fifth of bourbon in place of a bouquet. This wedding was so, perfectly, characteristically, Jenn and Sam. From Pac-12 football references during the speeches, to pre-wedding Chik Fil A, I could never imagine her getting married any other way.

Dana Point in and of itself is an absolute dream. We posted up at the Marriott, which featured views of the bay and perfectly golden sunsets. Another bonus: saw about 350 dogs just during bridal portraits alone. We were only mildly distracted. Southern California, I just love you. Can’t wait to go back!
