Working in hotel sales, Laura handles a lot of weddings for luxury hotels in San Francisco. Having worked with hundreds of wedding photographers, I definitely felt the pressure when she picked me to shoot her special day.
Laura and Matt’s Story
During their college years, Laura and Matt met at a Pet Food Express where they were both worked. These college sweethearts quickly fell in love and on their graduation trip to Ireland, Matt popped the question in a beautiful park. Today, the couple enjoy brunching, antique hunting and hanging out with their adorable dog.
The San Francisco City Hall Wedding
After getting ready at the Omni Hotel, the bride and groom chose to meet in the lobby of the hotel. As Laura came down the hotel stairs she was greeted by a standing ovation from the entire hotel staff. Matt awaited his bride and when he saw her was brought to tears.
Before heading to City Hall, I joined Laura and Matt at their San Francisco apartment where they were greeted by their dog. After snapping a few photos with their pooch we headed to the wedding ceremony.
The ceremony was held in the Fourth Floor Gallery of the San Francisco City Hall. Surrounded by family and friends, the couple was married by Matt’s brother. With the gorgeous City Hall and city as a backdrop, Laura and Matt posed for a few more photographs. Along with their guests, the newly married couple then headed to their reception in a private cable car. The love-filled lunch was held at Original Joe’s.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Laura and Matt. Wish them a lifetime of happiness and love.
