This San Francisco wedding took place at St. Dominic’s Church and Terra Gallery.  It was a pleasure and great fun to photograph the wedding of my friends Rosi and Eddie. In spite of the threatening clouds in the sky that day, it did not end up raining.  Rosi and Eddie held their ceremony at the beautiful St. Dominic’s Catholic Church in the Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. With English Gothic-style architecture, the arches and carved marble provided a great setting to the ceremony.

After the wedding, the entire wedding party did a shoot at Fort Point, located in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge. A lovely, iconic location to use for a backdrop. We also took shots near the San Francisco City Hall.

The reception was a fun and beautiful experience as well. It was held at the San Francisco event space Terra Gallery, where high ceilings and floor-to-ceilings windows provided a beautiful ambiance for celebrating. The caterer for the event was from the same place Eddie works, and made enough food to feed 500+ people! Rosi and Eddie also had a Mexican mariachi band that provided great music and atmosphere for the celebration while DJ Mixtec also kept the party going as the night went on. Everyone had the opportunity to let out their creative side with a one of the best Photo Booth in the Bay Area from SnapFiesta.

This San Francisco Chinatown wedding is the third wedding I’ve shot for this particular group of friends.  Sue and Norm had a destination wedding in Hawaii, and this was their San Francisco reception. It took place at the Far East Cafe Restaurant in Chinatown. Before heading to the restaurant the limo stopped by a few San Francisco landmarks, including the Embarcadero and parts of Chinatown. The groom was involved with Chinese martial arts, and so his old school provided the lion and dragon dancers for the wedding. It was an exceptional show. The whole restaurant is full of TV screens, which actually came in pretty useful when the slideshows were playing, so that guests facing the back would continue eating their meals. Norm was possibly the most acrobatic groom I’ve ever photographed. Very fun couple. More friends getting married? Bring it on!
