A Golden beauty and SF City Hall affair | Part 1

It was a gorgeous day in San Francisco for a City Hall wedding. My lovely golden beauty bride, Christi, was radiant as ever!  The day started off at the stunning Stanford Hill Hotel with Christi and her lovely and hilarious crew of ladies.  Shooting weddings in San Francisco are always fun but having a great group of girls surrounding the bride always makes for a wonderful time and great photos all day long!

Why hello!  Welcome to the bridal beauty fun house!happy-SF-Bride-at-Standford-HotelMy bride, Christi, is an amazing woman, friend and talented Sacramento Makeup Artist. Of course, she decided to do her own hair and makeup – with a little help from her friends!

I LOVED the floral robes Christi picked out for all her girls!  Can you find another group of ladies more fabulous than this…I think not!

It was so important to capture this shot for Christi – this makeup case belonged to her grandmother.MAC-makeup-brideSF-wedding-ring-detailEmotional-bride-photo
I love this little entrepreneur to pieces! Of course most brides cry on their wedding day but Christi’s tears came from the new ipad and Square reader her fiance surprised her with.   Go get em’ Christi!

Before walking down the aisle we squeezed in a few portraits on the front steps of SF City Hall.  Christi is such a stunning bride!candid-SF-city-hall-wedding-picture
I love the raw emotion of this candid wedding photo.  Christi’s friend spotted her before heading in for the ceremony – the shear joy and emotion on her face is priceless.
