san francisco city hall intimate wedding | cindy & bryan

when cindy & bryan reached out to me to photograph their intimate wedding ceremony at san francisco city hall, i was ecstatic. i knew from our initial phone consultation that the two of them were so sweet, and san francisco city hall was on my list of dream venues to photograph at. (and you’ll see why!)

cindy & bryan’s city hall ceremony was the most intimate wedding i’ve photographed in my career– they wed with only their officiant and their parents as witnesses, in preparation for their international destination wedding in mexico with all of their friends and family a few weeks later.

it was such an honor to capture their special day.

crafted at the port of los angeles san pedro wedding | mimi & andrew

i remember meeting andrew & mimi for the first time in downtown la and hearing their story–andrew proposed to mimi beneath the stars, on a camping trip. they met shortly after high school and have been smitten ever since.

mimi and andrew found me on instagram, which is just about the coolest thing! their wedding was held at crafted at the port of los angeles, a warehouse in san pedro. their day was so unique, from the warehouse wedding location to their ceremony itself! instead of a traditional seated ceremony, andrew and mimi’s guests stood around the ceremony site and watched as the bride and groom said their vows beneath their hanging ceremony garland and had a traditional korean ceremony–but you’ll have to see for yourself! andrew is also a photographer, and if there’s one thing evident from their wedding, it’s that he and mimi have a great sense of style. i loved the mix of mid-century modern reception decor with the urban wedding venue and its string lights that added the perfect romantic ambience. it was such an honor to capture their beautiful wedding day!
