One sentence sum-up of the wedding vibe: Small and intimate, where San Francisco and Stockholm unite.

Other cool stuff we should know about
I’m from San Francisco and Kris is from Stockholm. We met in San Francisco while he was on a road trip through California with some Swedish friends. We dated over long distances for over two years, meeting up each month in different parts of the world. Such great adventures! We decided we both wanted to make San Francisco our home and he moved to the city on a fiancé visa. Since I manage events and know ALL the details that go into planning an actual event, I didn’t want to have a wedding. So it was just his family, my family, and a few close friends in attendance. A nice ten minute ceremony at San Francisco City Hall followed by a luncheon. Perfect.
Favorite thing about the wedding
Bringing together our families and the close friends we love. Pure and simple. No frills. No fuss.
