001FloryPhoto_Wedding_SanFrancisco

Few peoples family roots run as deep into San Francisco as Katie + John’s do. Their wedding celebrated not only their love, their family and their friends, but there was a sense of honoring their San Francisco heritage as well.  And did we mention these two (and their guests!)  know how to party? Thank you Katie and John for letting us be a part of your big day! As always we loved working with Dream a Little Dream Events & the flowers from A Simple Ceremony were stunning. This was the first ever wedding at One Leidesdorff and it was a perfect venue for their wedding. For a full list of vendors and more info about the wedding be sure to scroll down to the end of the post. Also, I want to give a big shout out to Nirav and Kelly for shooting with us at this wedding and a couple of the photos below are theirs.  Thanks you two.

My inspiration was winter in the city. If I had my way and forests grew in San Francisco, we would have been married in the woods! I wanted to bring a woodsy, country feel to the city. I wanted the wedding to be classic, somewhat traditional, but very characteristic of Johnny and myself - lots of good company, good food, drinks and tunes! I found a spread in a bridal magazine that incorporated metallic colors and foliage and I was sold - anything green in color makes me happy! I wanted the reception to be original, comfortable and organic - & Melissa (A Simple Ceremony) nailed the flowers & decor on the head. I wanted each area, each table, etc. to have its own personality - same with my bridesmaids, too. We just wanted everyone to have as great a time as we were having!

The whole day was my FAVORITE moment! Each step throughout the day was exciting and new and absolutely so much fun. I cannot pinpoint my exact favorite moment, but each of them happening as the day went on was surprising and thrilling and wonderful for its own reasons.
