Happy Holidays friends and fellow travelers!! This week, in between Christmas and New Year’s we’ll be sharing with you a few of our favorite weddings and events from this past year. If you’re newly engaged – congratulations!! And take a look at our 2013 wedding must-sees, starting with this sweet and swanky elopement in San Francisco!
Rebecca and Michael held their destination wedding in a spectacular park in San Francisco; but not just any park – the Golden Gate Park. Hidden beneath beautiful trees, a sweet ceremony with an intimate crowd of friends and family stood by their side as they said “I do.”
The bride’s style was to die for! A Vera Wang wedding dress paired with love appropriate red heart adorned shoes and in lieu of a bouquet, a wrist corsage!
Michael and Rebecca selected the location because… “San Francisco is our favourite city, we love everything about it.”
Wooden benches dressed with pillows set the ceremony and blended nicely with the natural environment.
Sweet and sentimental moments were shared during this darling ceremony.
Then it was time for a few fabulous photo ops with destination wedding photographer, Jonas Peterson.
A trolley car then took guests to the reception!
An array of tea cups, orange florals and personal details awaited guests when they arrived. “We wanted an eclectic mix of patterns & colours to create a fresh & happy atmosphere for us and for our guests.”
Local beers and lavender cocktails were served to keep the magic of the city infused into every detail!
And the day went off without a hitch! “Everything ran smoothly from the beginning. Planning the day from the other side of the world was often time consuming & tricky with the time difference, but thankfully no real hiccups.”
To wrap up the event, guests were given Ghiradelli chocolates in tin trolley car containers!
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
