San Francisco is a city with some serious style. It’s has a way about it, and the couples who tie the knot in that stylish city? They are equally chic. Case and point – this darling duo and their rooftop wedding at Hotel Vitale. Their big day overlooked sweeping views of a city, providing an oh-so-perfect backdrop for This Love of Yours Photography to snap up – leaving us with one stunning full gallery of images. See them all here.
From the Bride… I knew I wanted a short dress from the beginning. Thankfully, it wasn’t hard to shop around for one – not a lot of short dresses available in the bridal vein in the winter season when I had purchased my dress. I thought the dress would look better with a sash. Both were purchased at White Toronto in Toronto. I’m all about ‘one stop shopping’ and also purchased my Oscar de la Renta shoes there!
Bill bought his shirt at this men’s shirt boutique called Cafe Coton on Grant Street in Union Square. The manager was super nice; he was nice enough to let us in after hours and he gave us excellent customer service! Very impressed! The boutique was also the only store that we went to that carried a pink shirt at that time – Bill had a specific look he was going for at our wedding!
From This Love of Yours Photography… Linda and Bill love San Francisco. Both being urban planners living in Florida, they have a great appreciation for cityscapes and architecture. So when these two decided to get married, they had to do it in the city that they are so smitten with. And we are so happy they did! When we first met with them to talk about their intimate destination wedding, they spoke of how important photography is to them and how much they wanted their photos to have a distinct San Francisco feel. In order to do that, they wanted to set aside a big portion of their wedding for their bride and groom photos. We had so much fun visiting their favorite local spots and capturing their love for each other in the city they love so much. So fitting! We finished up at their outdoor rooftop ceremony and reception at the amazing Hotel Vitale which looks over the iconic Ferry Building and Embarcadero.
