Cayte & Andrew. Golden Gate Club San Francisco Wedding.

It was the most gorgeous day I’d ever seen in San Francisco in December. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky & the air stood still. It was almost 79 degrees in DECEMBER. Sailboats were on the bay, people were relaxing on the beach, the sun perfectly lit up the sky-high eucalyptus trees. They literally couldn’t have picked a more perfect day to be married. Their wedding was held at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio which looked out to the Golden Gate Bridge. For a couple who met in the Bay Area & fell in love here, it was a great location for their special day.

I really think that people have weddings that show what kind of people they are-Cayte & Andrew’s wedding was amazingly fun, carefree & was the greatest party ever! Their wedding was such a great reflection of the wonderful and fun people that they are. Cayte & Andrew had all their bridal party, family & bride & groom photographs taken before the wedding ceremony-which I loved. It gave them so much time after the wedding to relax & really be able to see & talk to their guests. I appreciated them taking my advice and doing all the formal photos before the ceremony-it really makes the day flow so much better & then the couple can enjoy the party! Their reception was a fantastic party-there were food stations set up around the room that represented different areas of San Francisco-there was a Fisherman’s Wharf table where you could get clam chowder & bread bowls, a Mission table where you could get tacos, North Beach where you’d get Italian food & China Town where you ate dim sum. So fun & such a great idea to represent all the great food in San Francisco! As the sun sunk behind the Golden Gate, Cayte & Andrew were toasted by their friends, serenaded with a beautiful love song & spent the evening partying like it was 1999.

Cayte & Andrew-thank you so much for choosing me to document all the joy & laughter from your amazing wedding! You are a darling couple & I loved-LOVED being a part of your special day. You guys were a great couple to work with & made my job so effortless! Thank you to my new friends! Wishing you decades & decades of happy marriage & lots of Sharks games together! XOXO, marielle

Cayte….you are a beauty!!!

Andrew was SO excited to see Cayte!

So many bridesmaids & groomsmen! Cayte & Andrew have so many wonderful friends who were there to stand by them for their wedding…

Andrew brewed the beer for his groomsmen & wrote a note to each groomsmen on every bottle-so thoughtful!

Loved all the miniature pinecone details on Cayte’s hairband & on Andrew’s boutonniere…
