San Francisco City Hall Wedding: Julie and Brian

 

About a week ago we had the pleasure of shooting Julie and Brian’s San Francisco City Hall wedding photos. Their family and close friends joined them from around the country for this intimate celebration and we had a great time capturing their wedding photos.

San Francisco City Hall weddings usually take place during the weekdays, and Julie and Brian’s wedding was the last ceremony of the day on a warm and sunny Friday afternoon. Arriving in a beautiful white limo, Julie was met by Brian and everyone who had gathered in front of the City Hall. The emotional ceremony was followed by a photo session near the Palace of Fine Arts:

We don’t get to photograph bridal preparations for City Hall weddings often, so we absolutely welcomed this chance. Love this picture of Julie getting ready.

Loved the reaction of Brian’s mom when she first saw him on the day of the wedding.

Julie looked absolutely stunning, she chose to have a veil which yielded for countless photo opportunities!

SF City Hall building never ceases to amaze me – love the architecture of it. It’s amazing how different it looks from different angles: I don’t think I’ve ever seen two photographs of that building that looked the same!

Every wedding ceremony in SF City Hall starts in room 168 – the County Clerk’s Office. That’s where Julie and Brian took an oath and signed all the necessary paperwork.

After all the papers were taken care off it was a time to go up the stairs to the Rotunda for the wedding ceremony:

It is always a treat to photograph portraits inside the City Hall, the light there is absolutely gorgeous!

Pat and Dennie - Gram,Uncle Den and I looked at all the wedding pictures…..we thought the pictures were ABSOLUTELY beautiful.
Each picture of the two of you was so fabulous………I would never be able to pick a favorite…they just got better and better as we scanned through them.

Of course..I think Julie, you should be in a “Brides Magazine” you looked soooooooo beautiful, the veil blowing in the breeze………walking up the steps…..even your beautiful shoes showing, when Brian was carrying you……the picture walking on the beach……..awe……..what a nice one.

Tom Brady…oh, I mean Brian………..you looked so handsome……….and both of you looked sooooooooo happy.
Brian………..I love your hair just the way it is………..and the clean shaved face !!!!! Hope to see you like that when you come back east (ha–ha)
I can’t imagine what the rest of the pictures will be like………..
You’ll have a really difficult time choosing………….take ’em ALL!!!

I’ll send them to Kristin ,Kevin, and Kim………..and Brides Magizine…and G.Q.

love you guys, and welcome to our family Julie…..another Litwinowich……….

Mike - Thanks, Alex! Definitely agree with you about the City Hall – it couldn’t have better light.

The last shot is just outside the City Hall in one of the two tree-lined alleys in the center of the Civic Center plaza.
