A Black Tie Affair | Emily + Yosem’s SF City Hall Wedding


One of the most exciting things for me is to hear my clients articulate their vision for the wedding day. Even more thrilling is to actually see that vision come alive, and of course to be there to document it! Emily, Yosem and their families planned a truly grand affair for the couple’s day – a 1920’s/30’s theme ruled the day. Their San Francisco City Hall Mayor’s Balcony wedding began with elegantly-clad guests enjoying a cocktail reception at the Kensington Park Hotel, and then a fleet of Rolls Royce cars arrived to ferry the attendees to the wedding ceremony at San Francisco City Hall. During the ceremony, the guests watched Emily and Yosem exchange rings on the Mayor’s Balcony, as the grandeur of City Hall unfolded behind the couple. A champagne toast, formal photographs, and then the couple and I escaped to do our grand photographic tour of City Hall, while the guests enjoyed an official tour of the building, conducted by the docent. Finally, the day concluded with a lovely dinner reception at Farallon: delicious food, a beautiful cake (created by the bride’s sister!), and a hilarious quiz game were the highlights of the evening. Thank you, Emily, Yosem, and your families, for inviting me to be a part of your San Francisco City Hall Mayor’s Balcony wedding! Congratulations!

    What great settings for the wedding! The architectural details of the hotel and city hall are wonderful.There are only a few items in the pictures that give away the era in which the wedding took place (or did not take place). One of them is the picture of all the men - they don't have cigars!

    The bride was beautiful as were all the Greenberg women.

    One day I hope to meet Yosem one day as well as the other men who have joined the Greenberg family.

    Thanks for giving us the opportunity to view the pictures

    All the best, Len
