Lauren & Eric at San Francisco City Hall | Wedding Reception at Cliff House


Lauren at Eric met years ago working together at Best Buy in San Francisco. Now living in Southern California, they knew they wanted to start their marriage in the same city that brought them there. They also knew that they wanted to plan something quiet and low key, focusing on bringing their families and closest friends together for a small ceremony in San Francisco's most beautiful building - San Francisco City Hall - and a lovely lunch on the most iconic beach in the city. 

After their ceremony and some portraits around City Hall, the three of us ventured off to the apartment where Eric lived when they first started dating for a quick and dirty (well, rainy and windy) portrait, and then we met their people at Cliff House in Lands End. 


San Francisco City Hall Elopement | A Winter Wedding


These two handsome men got married in at San Francisco City Hall just before Christmas, with just a mom in tow. One of the best kept secrets of San Francisco City Hall elopements is that you can absolutely ask your officiant to switch ceremony locations from the rotunda. See the beautiful spot they chose below!


Krissy & Michael // San Francisco City Hall Elopement


Krissy & Michael were two of my first San Francisco City Hall clients, having moved from Australia to San Francisco to pursue job opportunities. Partners for a long time but not ready for a big wedding quite yet, they eloped with friends in tow and skyped their folks back in Australia during and after.

Krissy was particularly keen on not wearing white, and her orange lace dress was a gorgeous alternative.
