Nicole & Jon's Wedding. San Francisco

Ceremony and reception at the University Club in San Francisco.

This was a lively bunch! You know, with some people you can just tell it’ll be a fun day. From our first dinner, to the engagement session, to the wedding day - jokes, smiles, and funny faces all the way. Their friends and family were no different. For instance, on the dancefloor that night, there was one particular person who really stood out to me. She loved the Batman mask... Good times!

It’s the view - the Club enjoys a stunning view of the Financial District from its position near the top of Nob Hill. This was one of the first things Nicole and Jon said when I asked about their choice of venue. Well, guess what? September is the perfect month to take advantage of it as the Santa Ana’s push away the fog that usually blankets the Bay on summer evenings. It remained clear throughout the day and night.

Nicole and company started across the street at the Fairmont with hair and makeup by the talented Wowpretty team. Great working with them again! The ceremony was at the Club on the top floor which featured hardwood floors, dark wood mouldings, french doors, and a large fireplace. We spent some time in the library as well which housed a vast collection of old books. Built in the early 1900’s the current building served as a private club for well-educated young men. The dark wood and assorted social rooms attest to that bygone era.

After cocktail hour, the party moved downstairs. Asiel created the beautiful florals and shiny crystal centerpieces while Nicole and Jon provided the bedazzled table numbers. Guests dined, watching the City turn from day to night when many office buildings in FiDi flip on their lights. Need something sweet, sour, or tangy? Nicole and Jon love candy so late night munchies were satisfied at the candy bar.

The folks at Big Fun always have great lighting. Lovin' that dancefloor :) Another beautiful event! Big thanks to everyone involved and to Gail at the University Club for inviting me in for a look around earlier in the year.

Wedding photography has come a long way from it’s early roots. If you’re dreading the time and trouble that those obligatory portraits take to set up and shoot, it might help to know that you’ve got it pretty easy compared to couples in the early days of wedding photography. So, humor the parents and grandparents who want a traditional portrait or two. These days it only takes a few minutes to give them that cherished memory.

Wow, this couple had an iconic wedding ceremony. I can’t get over of these outstanding photos. I just made a list of some garden themed venues in San Francisco and will visit those spots pretty soon. Actually I need a venue for my reception party.
