This wedding is simply perfection. There is no getting around it. The stunning San Francisco setting? The picture perfect color palette? The gorgeous Bride and Groom? Every single thing captured by the talented Clane Gessel is prettiness defined, and you can see it all here.


From Clane Gessel PhotographyMark and Christie met UC Berkeley as undergraduates and fell quickly in love. After spending all of college and post years side by side, they showcased their love for each other in the Bay Area with a SF-centric wedding last year.

Their nuptials featured soft pink colors and lots of warming lighting, including a large Christmas tree in the James Leary Flood Mansion. Christie wore a beautiful lace and organza gown designed and created by Jin Wang a San Francisco based designer, paired with sparkling bow-shaped earrings. Mark and his groomsmen stole the day in their sharply tailored suits – with engraved flasks secretly stashed in each pocket. As true San Francisco Natives, Christie and Mark made sure to snap shots as bride and groom at all of the city’s most iconic locales.

Reception at The James Leary Flood Mansion with every detail thought of finished the day, with not one but two dessert bars as well as a custom four tier wedding cake by Cake Expressions. Larry Lynch and the Mob serenaded the evening beginning calm and finishing with a party!
