Palace Hotel Wedding | San Francisco Wedding Photos

When we first learned that Diana and Daniel’s wedding will be taking place at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco we knew right away to expect an elegant and stylish day. Their engagement session at Embarcadero was just awesome and we learned that they’re up for pretty much any crazy & creative idea we have :)

On the wedding day we went to the Legion of Honor for portraits and had a ton of fun there! One of the benefits of having a slightly off-season wedding is that you can pick a very popular, usually crowded, location for your photos and still be the only wedding party there. We still had a bit of time left before the ceremony started and we decided to also roam the Palace Hotel for portrait locations.

We love shooting in older San Francisco hotels with their antique benches and sofas, big lobbies, lush greenery, awesome mirrors, columns and curtains. We could literally spend hours and hours with the variety of scenes and backgrounds available.

This Palace Hotel wedding had a Chuppah ceremony held in the Sunset Court where we absolutely loved the beautifully tall domed-glass ceilings.

This hotel simply exudes luxury in every way and the reception at the charming Grand Ballroom was prepped with gorgeous details, a great band, and some colorful lighting which added great colors to the backgrounds of all the reception shots.

As a special performance, a belly dancer was invited to entertain and dazzle the audience with her abilities:

This was the last wedding of the year for Choco Studio and we are happy to have shot such a spectacular event for our season finale. We are very much looking forward to some down time, spending more time with friends, snowboarding in Tahoe, planning our own wedding, and even going to a couple of very tropical destinations :) The break in between the weddings is not for long, however, and next year’s events are starting right up again in January!
