Angela and Collin's wedding was awesome! They were married at noon, in a meadow in Golden Gate Park. Then they joined their friends and families in a relaxed, sunny picnic. I also love weddings in big, fancy venues, with ornate flowers and food - but these guys really blew me away with their creative details, their bright and lovely colors, and their focus on staying true to what matters to them. I think it was a perfect day!
We wandered over to the nearby Conservatory of Flowers and adjoining gardens for photos. It was a foggy-then-sunny Sunday morning and afternoon in Golden Gate Park, which was filled with families and tourists and locals visiting museums, roller blading and biking, walking their dogs, etc. I think it was just the right feeling of community and place that Angela and Collin were hoping for.
The food was fantastic! Sandwiches, salads, and vegetables, plus a selection of refreshing drinks and handmade fruit galettes for dessert - simple but totally delicious.
And OH the dahlias :)
I love how Angela and Collin were literally encircled by their community during their ceremony:
There was croquet, bubble blowing, a football tossed around - and a lot of great lounging in the (rare) SF sunshine, on these most adorable picnic blankets/ guest favors, homemade by Angela's mom!
I can't think of a sweeter place to get married, complete with squirrels and dog walkers meandering past.
And a really kind note from Angela"
"Yay! These are so amazing. Thank you!!! I was having a really crummy day (suffice it to say that involved the SF DMV). Getting [the photos] really turned the day around. I absolutely love all of the shots. You did an amazing job capturing the day."
Thank YOU and congratulations, Angela and Collin!
