Posts Tagged ‘San Francisco City Hall’

Weather has always played an important role for photographers specializing in wedding photography; outdoor portrait sessions do turn out to be more pleasant with Mother Nature’s cooperation and some sunshine. Then, there are days when one has to go against all odds to get the job. On May 28th, 2010, in the middle of a heavy downpour, we shot the wedding of Karen and Joost at the San Francisco City Hall.

As the wedding ceremony and reception was a small yet elegant affair, the couple decided to do the portrait session at some beautiful locations around the city. The day started off at the Legion of Honor, a museum displaying a collection of ancient and European art with breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge; when not enveloped in dense fog that is. After the museum we headed off to the oldest San Francisco landmark: The Palace of Fine Arts. An artistic wonder built after 1906, The Palace of Fine Arts served as a stunning background for the couple as it was fenced off for renovations at the time and there was nary a visitor in sight.

The San Francisco City Hall is a favorite among couples looking for a quick civil ceremony to bind them in Holy Matrimony. The historic architecture inside and out has served the community for more than eighty years. The wedding ceremony for Karen and Joost was held at the fourth floor gallery, a serene and cozy place filled with sunlight coming through a huge window above. We observed on Karen and Joost’s special day that no matter how big the venue is, nothing compares to the intimacy of sharing a precious moment in life in the company of friends and loved ones at the San Francisco City Hall. Even with the weather not being on our side, it turned out to be a perfect day after all!
