Other cool stuff: We wanted to keep our wedding as green as possible, so in addition to supporting small and local vendors, we encouraged our guests to take public transportation across town to our reception location. We assigned friends familiar with the bus system as Bus Leaders, made tour guide pennants for them to carry, and gave them all enough one dollar bills to get our guests tickets. And, bonus, I got to ride a bus in my wedding dress.

One sentence sum up the wedding vibe: Ours was a joyful, hip, approachable San Francisco wedding.

Favorite thing about the wedding: I know I’m not the first (or last) to say it, but seeing everyone we love come together was my favorite thing about the wedding. The majority of our guests had to travel significant distances, and it was strongly emotional for me to feel so loved and so supported by our vast community. It was tangible, and writing about this even a year later makes my heart sing.
