The doors opened at 8 a.m. and I was one of the first people through them. I was meeting Wendi from Sweetness & Light Floral Design. We had back-to-back shoots that morning. We started with this San Francisco City Hall bridal session and ended with an editorial elopement at City Hall. Wendi is one of my favorite florists and she’s absolutely gorgeous from the inside out. I was so excited to not only be shooting her beautiful floral arrangements, but to have her model for the bridal session as well.
For this shoot we chose a soft grey and blue color palette. I’m so glad we went with a soft blue lace dress rather than a white one. It complimented our overall design so well and the cut out shoulders are my favorite. It’s elegant and classy and a perfect City Hall dress. Sandelin Designs created an absolutely stunning invitation suite. She put so many thoughtful details into the design. She incorporated drawings of City Hall and the sweetest quote about San Francisco by Dylan Thomas. I loved these elements of her design so much.
The light and architecture inside City Hall are so gorgeous. It was amazing having this place essentially all to ourselves that morning. I may have gotten reprimanded for talking too loud, but I was just so excited about how everything came together. I had been wanting to shoot a bridal session at City Hall for a while and I can’t thank this dream team enough for bringing my vision to life.
