Did you know that Tanja Lippert is the photographer behind the single most shared wedding on SMP? Yep, it's true. Tanja is a photography genius and because of those mad skills she happens to score some of the most wonderful clients on the planet. Case in point? This next little number. Of which I'm pretty sure is going to give her "single most shared wedding" a run for its money. With details and styling by Brown Paper Design, a bride and groom that are positively glowing and a general sense of all out lovely, this wedding is one for the books. Oh and we didn't even come close to posting all of the beauty so before you go, make sure you check out the stunning full collection of images right here.
And to top it all off, there is a gorgeous video from Basico by Weddings on Film! Be sure to check it out:

From the Bride... We chose San Francisco because it was between our schools where we first met. However, given that we fell in love in NYC where we spent five years together, we wanted to bring things we loved about NYC to San Francisco as well: modern elements mixed with classic, old-world elegance, a little bit of fashion and cocktails with a twist. We also picked decorations that we wanted have in our future home together. We were also lucky to get one key advice early on: prioritize in the beginning of the planning process and stick to it. Later on, I was tempted to consider and implement every idea, but our earlier thoughts helped us stick to our guns! We put in a lot of time to find our vendors, and thank goodness we did. Sure, not everything was perfect or what I expected, but some things were actually better! We had tremendous support through everyone around us. For instance, one of my bridesmaids, Iru Ba, with her business partner Sabrina Cho, made our bridesmaid dresses.

There were so many magical moments on our wedding day. Walking through Union Square toward Albert for our first look.  Seeing all of my favorite people in the world as I walk down the aisle. Riding the trolley around the city with the best friends one could ask for (and them singing at the top of their lungs). We wouldn't have had it any other way. Thanks again all to our wonderful, selfless friends and family for giving us the best day of our lives!
