marissa and erwin's wedding - city hall - shanghai 1930 - san fancisco, california

commentator: ed

the san francisco city hall is a venue that is near and dear to my heart since this is the place monica and i were wed. marissa & erwin shared their vows on a beautiful friday morning in an intimate ceremony, witnessed by their parents. the wedding turned out to be SO meaningful because they took out the bells and whistles to really concentrate on what a wedding means to them. it was simply a happy celebration of their love for one another, the joining of both families and afterwards, partying with friends. which, when you boil everything down... it's exactly what a wedding is supposed to be!

this lovely couple was still able to include an entourage of bridesmaids and groomsmen, those who they hold near and dear to their heart. we took photos just outside the civic center, which its gorgeous architecture. their reception included a beautiful luncheon at shangai 1930 in san francisco with the rest of their family and friends. it was a blast!

congratulations, marissa & erwin! i'm so honored to have captured your big day!
