Elopements, Weddings


On a bright, sunny day at San Francisco’s city hall, Elisha and Adam repeated their vows to one another and celebrated their marriage with just their immediate family members in attendance. Both Elisha and Adam had worked hard for months on planning their big wedding abroad in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where Adam’s family is originally from, but when it came time to obtain their official marriage license in the city where they live, they both knew they wanted to celebrate that day with a special ceremony as well.

The bride wore a dress that was designed and sewn by her mother, a feat that, while incredible, isn’t totally surprising for anyone who knows Elisha’s mom! During Elisha’s competitive ice skating days, Elisha’s mom lovingly handmade all of her daughter’s costumes. I loved this truly personal touch on Elisha and Adam’s San Francisco city hall wedding day.

We had a wonderful time exploring the quiet halls and stunning Beaux-Arts architecture of San Francisco’s city hall together. It’s sincerely one of my favorite places to photograph at in the city and it never gets old – probably because I personally got married there just a few years ago and the memories are still very close in my heart.

I hope you all enjoy the photos!
