The San Francisco City Hall Elopement of Maria + Dean

After 15 years of dating, Maria and Dean flew out to San Francisco to secretly marry at City Hall. This was one of the sweetest elopements I’ve ever witnessed! I met them early in the morning at their airbnb & caught them snuggling in bed while the coffee was brewing. Maria got a house with a killer view of San Francisco’s skyline with a deck where they ate their croissants. Dean helped his bride into her simple and modeset dress while whispering, “you look so beautiful” in her ear. Ugh, I MELTED! We then took an Uber to City Hall & waited in line with other couples waiting to get married. The light, the architecture, Maria & Dean’s love, their vows echoing off the walls.. it was all just so magical. After exploring city hall, we took another Uber to grab pastries & lattes in Little Italy at a place called Caffe Greco (one of their fav places). We ended the evening chasing the light down towards a private little beach near the Golden Gate bridge where they celebrated by popping champagne & reflecting on the day. It was perfect.
