I never realized that a City Hall wedding could be so intimate, romantic and private. Sheela and Nathan had never visited San Francisco before, but had seen how stunning our City Hall was through on-line photos. Together, they drove from Southern California to elope in our fair City. I had the honor of being their witness. Waiting for their turn with the officiant, we made some wonderful portraits in the majestic hallways and on the stairwell. When it was time for their ceremony, it seemed that no one else was in the building, the way they looked at each other. It was truly touching. To celebrate, we jumped into a Town Car and visited the Palace of Fine Arts and the Marin side of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a blast playing tour guide! The driver and I even suggested where they should have dinner, Cafe Sport in North Beach. I found out later that they took us up on it and had a great time. So cute!!! Weddings can be amazing and heart-felt with 200 guests or none at all. This was a day I’ll always remember with the fondest of memories.
Ok, now I have to share Sheila’s darling note to me: “I LOVE them so much. I called Nathan and I’m sitting here elated. I laughed, I cried – they are perfect. You are wonderful and we are so thankful that you were there! We love them. We cannot thank you enough.” “I’m sorry I had to write you one more time to tell you that I cannot stop looking at them!!! I have so much studying to do right so I really do need to stop at least for a little while. They really are so incredibly beautiful. We look so happy and I love the variety. I don’t know that I have ever really loved a picture of myself, but there are several in there that are so beautiful I don’t believe I am looking at a picture of me. You even got Nathan with his huge grin that I love and he doesn’t do often for the camera. I love everything about them; you are amazing! I’m about to cry again 🙂 THANK YOU!”
