Take me to City Hall

August 11, 2010

I have a lot of love for cute, intimate and quirky wedding stories right now and Kristen & Alex’s super stylish affair is no different. The pair had ceremony, just the two of them, at San Francisco City Hall followed by a small reception at Orson Restaurant, where they decided to have another small dedication ceremony in front of their gathered friends and family. “My favorite moments were the separation of the ceremonies” Kristen told me. “We had stressed for months on how to please both ourselves and our families (we wanted to elope, they didn’t want us to) The idea of 2 ceremonies was the perfect solution. My favorite tradition was the fact that we were so non-traditional. It took me a while while planning to realize that we had the freedom to do things the way we wanted, there was no rule that we had to do things in a certain way.”

The bride wore an ivory bridesmaids dress by Coren Moore with shoes by an Australian brand called Wittner that she had picked up on a trip to Sydney. Her veil, bolero and earrings all came from various Etsy sellers and her gorgeous  bracelet was Marc Jacobs. She pulled everything together with a vintage style clutch and a bright pop of colour with her red rose bouquet.

Thanks to Kristen & Alex and their photographer Joel for sharing this gorgeous wedding with us today
