Was such an interesting atmosphere passing other weddings on our way out. I was glad I hired the 4th North level for our ceremony for privacy reasons.

About to embark on an extensive photo shoot capturing this beautiful city with our brilliant photographer Josef from IQPhoto.

Before we leave though we had to get that ‘just married’ shot.


Interesting to know that Marilyn Monroe and Jo DiMaggio also married here in 1954. They exited through the back entrance of City Hall to escape reporters.

Goodbye City Hall.

Josef took us on a scenic drive for out shoot with our first stop being the Golden Gate. Unfortunately we didn’t spend much time here as the winds were fiercely gale force (& I was turning blue). Somehow Josef made it look effortless. So glad with the result.

Our next stop was the highest hill in San Francisco with the most stunning views. Was just as breathtaking as City Hall. There was something so special about being so elevated against such a beautifully designed city. These would have to be my favorite shots.

Ending our day on a relaxed vibe. It was a two hour photo shoot and well worth every cent. I was blown away when I received the final edit from IQphoto. They went above and beyond what I expected and more.

This now wraps up everything left of our wedding. It was the happiest day of my life and everything went perfectly. I didn’t have a traditional wedding, but I think that’s what made it more exciting and memorable.

I”m so happy to share our journey with you and hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
