San Francisco City Hall Wedding
San Francisco’s City Hall might just be the cream of the crop of wedding venues. Chris and Jung wisely chose to reserve the fourth floor of the building for a Monday afternoon ceremony, and were treated to some seriously gorgeous architecture. We love this bride’s sweet purple bouquet, and of course all of Jessamyn Harris wonderful images! Don’t miss the rest of the photographs in the gallery.
From the photographer: Jung and Chris were friends for years before they started dating – but once they did, they realized very quickly that they wanted to spend their lives together, so I believe it was about one year from first date to wedding. They were married on a Monday morning at San Francisco City Hall – they rented a section of the 4th floor in that amazing building, with gorgeous natural light pouring in and lots of history and romance surrounding them. Then their guests walked over to a restaurant in Hayes Valley, Absinthe, for a private luncheon and cake.
Jung took care of lots of the details and planning herself, and they stuck to a budget and DIY aesthetic. I was amazing at how fabulous, lovely and fun it was, while keeping very true to themselves and their goals for their wedding. Perfect!
From the bride, Jung: The month we picked between my birthday and his birthday (March and May), eliminating any possibility of one celebration combining either of our birthdays with our anniversary… We had 3 months to plan our Monday afternoon wedding and I think that was the perfect amount of time. Any more time and I think I would have been stressed with unnecessary filler-projects. Not too long and not too short… just enough time to get everything ready while still being excited and quickly going through the planning process because the clock was ticking.

I love San Francisco City Hall weddings. Been there so many times. This is such a unique place to get married. I love this particular wedding which has been put together by a very creative couple. Bridal bouquet is very unique and cake is lovely.
I’m curious: how did they reserve the 4th floor? Also, did they rent chairs for the ceremony? I’m also doing a SF City Hall wedding. PS-did they rent chairs?
Simple and elegant. I love the setting and the fact that it’s in San Francisco. And the photos are beautiful.. Literally my dream wedding!
