Sweet San Fran Winter Wedding

Jan 22, 2013

I have a pretty San Francisco wedding to share with you today and with the subtle touches of red in the color palette, I feel like this could easily double as inspiration for a darling Valentine's Day wedding! Thanks to Laura Monfredini for sharing these gorgeous photos of Laura and Tristan with us. Enjoy:



Says photographer Laura, "Laura and Tristan's beautiful wedding took place on a Friday evening in downtown San Francisco. The setting was perfect since they are both native San Franciscans who met each other in High School. They dated briefly then, but it ended the way so many high school romances do. Fortunately, they never forgot about each other, and four years ago, they reconnected -- this time for good.


They planned an elegant, black-tie evening wedding that started with vows shortly after sunset in the historic Old St. Mary's Cathedral, which is in the heart of downtown San Francisco on the cable car line, at the corner of one of the busiest streets in Chinatown. The reception was at the Marines Memorial Club, which is an elegant venue a few blocks away.
 

Laura and Tristan took full advantage of being located in the heart of Silicon Valley -- they set up their wedding on the mobile app "Wedding Party," which functions like a private Instagram where guests can post photos they take on their smart phones. They also used TaskRabbit, an online source of just about everything, to have someone run wedding-day errands for them, and they shuttled some of their VIPs around using Uber Cab, another start-up based here in San Francisco. Thanks to both technology, and Laura's organizational skills, the day went off without a hitch. They just beamed all day long -- neither of them ever stopped smiling. It made our hearts so happy to see!"

I'm especially loving those bridesmaids' topknots! So cute! Thanks again to Laura, of eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY for sending this lovely wedding over to share. xx
