Here they are. The insanely beautiful photos from our wedding day, taken by our wonderful friend Morgan Bellinger. I highly recommend him for weddings, or for any other time you need a photographer. He’s incredibly good.
The commissioner who married us was really great. She gave us a choice of where the ceremony could take place, so we chose the mayor’s balcony on the second floor. The ceremony was beautiful and cozy. It was the happiest moment of my life.
Afterward, Morgan took us up the elevator (the really cool old kinds where you have to open and close the doors yourself) to the fourth floor, which had spectacular lighting, and took lots of photos of us there, as well as in other rooms of San Francisco city hall.
These photos truly capture the immense love Arthur and I have for each other, and the great joy we felt on the happiest day of our lives. I love my husband so much!
Since a lot of you wanted to know what we were wearing, I’ll tell you. I’m wearing a 1950s cheongsam with rhinestone buttons and silver lurex thread, 1950s Kramer earrings, 1950s deadstock pumps, and real gardenias in my hair. Arthur is wearing a late 1950s/early 1960s suit, a 1940s tie, a 1970s shirt, modern shoes, and a rose on his lapel. The majority of our wedding attire was purchased at Chick-A-Boom! Vintage from my darling friend and ex-employer Marissa.
There will be more wedding photos to come, but I had to post these right now. I couldn’t wait any longer!
See you Monday!
