Gilbert and Rudy chose Marriott Union Square for their wedding because it was a venue perfectly suited to their style. These guys were all about urban sophistication, and they certainly got it, with magnificent city views, and easy access to the Embarcadero and SoMa for a fun urban wedding photography itinerary. But more than that the Marriott offered the perfect setting for an intimate, emotional wedding day with close family and friends. I had the pleasure of creating a moody engagement session with these two gentlemen a few weeks before the wedding and I already knew what a strong connection they have. What I didn’t anticipate was just how much fun I would have with their awesome wedding party! They built plenty of time into our schedule, to allow for an extensive trip around the city, including a stroll through the SoMa, a pilgrimage to Pier 7, and even a pause at the peak of Nob Hill. We returned to the Marriott for a beautiful ceremony, where many of the participants recounted their personal experiences and feelings for the ‘Golden Boys’. Finally, an elegant reception awaited, and later in the night, Gilbert and Rudy unleashed a whole series of party games which had people crying from laughter. The grooms, their families and friends had invested so much effort in this wedding, and it showed. 9.10.11 turned out to be a perfect day.
