Joan & Kerry's Wedding. San Francisco

Ceremony and reception at the Trocadero Inn in Stern Grove, San Francisco.

Joan first called me August of last year. We were introduced by Raquel, who is getting married later this year and another Karl Ko Photography client. Time just flew by as Joan and Kerry were married this past Saturday. The ceremony was held outdoors under tall Eucalyptus and pine trees. Afterwards, guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the large porch of
the Trocadero Inn and at the bar inside. Dinner was served in the Trocadero's main room. The Inn was built in the 1890's and still retains many original details like the etched glass and Victorian accents.

Branch Out Florals and Event Design provided the bouquets and arrangements placed on tables and hung from chairs. The dinner by Left Coast Catering was delicious - thanks Marianne! You should also check out the cake's detail and piping work by Lelenitas Cakes which tasted as great as it looked.

At the end of the night a full-sized tour bus picked up the revelers taking them back to their hotels. What a great idea!

For those that don't know, the park is very distinctive occupying roughly 60 wooded acres in the Outer Sunset District. Stern Grove is best known for its free summer outdoor concert series (the Stern Grove Festival) with performances by popular jazz and pop acts as well as the San Francisco Symphony, San Francisco Opera, and San Francisco Ballet. The Concert Meadow was recently converted from a large grassy hill to a beautifully terraced seating area.
