Leeda and Edris invited me to document their big Afghan wedding at City Hall. The entire building was theirs for this particular Saturday night! The building was gorgeously lit, impeccably decorated, and ready to receive the celebration. I’ve been to San Francisco City Hall many many times over the years, but I’ve never seen it decked out quite like this. Speaking of decked out, the bride and groom were absolutely stunning, as were the family and guests. Everything about the evening was simply…beautiful. The decor, the couple, the guests, the music, the food. The way everyone danced, the smiles on their faces. It was truly a night to remember. Leeda and Edris had an emotional first look outside the hotel, amidst the hustle and bustle of holiday travelers. Then, as if to complement the festive, bold colors that would define the evening, there was even a vintage yellow cab to ferry Leeda and Edris from The Mark Hopkins Hotel to City Hall. Needless to say, I made sure we put it to photographic as well as automotive use! Mary Whelan of Wedsuite and her team were terrific and made sure that the expansive evening ran smoothly. On a personal note, it’s important to mention that the delicious Afghan meal you see in the photographs ended up on my plate and in my belly.
