Today I had the pleasure of officiating a destination wedding for an upstate New York couple who decided to "get hitched" here in San Francisco--the City by the Bay. A small entourage joined them for the happy occasion, a chance to take a mini-vacation and enjoy a SF Giants vs SD Padres game too.
But this isn't just any couple who enjoys baseball; the bridal bouquets were adorned with buttons some of which were souvenirs from various baseball stadiums they had visited--in fact, on the questionnaire I asked them to complete, they intend to visit every baseball stadium in the U.S.--it's a mutual passion. The wrist corsages worn by the Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom used black & orange ribbon.
So, on this blustery day, the group assembled outside--with the Bay as it's backdrop--to celebrate and witness the exchange of vows and rings! A San Francisco Trolley car pulled into the parking lot not as another photo backdrop but their transportation for some additional sight seeing and ultimately their ride to AT&T Park--she in her wedding gown and he in his tux with their bridal party, family and friends. An intimate wedding, a great day - congrats to Kelsey & Matt!
