Other cool stuff we should know about: We rented out City Hall in San Francisco for a morning ceremony. The building is absolutely stunning and it was so fun to have it all to ourselves. In the evening, we didn’t do any of the traditional reception stuff—we just wanted to have a big party to celebrate not only our relationship, but all of our friends and family and their importance in our lives. We had the party at an art gallery in our neighborhood that had never rented out the space before. The exhibit was “modern interpretations of wizardry,” which is pretty awesome! The gallery ended up being a perfect place, and it happened to be one of those rare San Francisco days that was in the 80s, so the temperature in the evening was perfect.
Favorite thing about the wedding: Everyone said they could see so much of us in our celebration and we couldn’t agree more—it was exactly what we wanted.
