What do you do when you grew up in the south and live in New York City? You get married in San Francisco, of course! And thanks to the ever fabulous Tamara J. Events I was lucky enough to photograph Garrett & Meredith’s sweet, intimate & Southern San Francisco wedding.
Picture Perfect, and Good Enough to Eat
You already know this wedding was off the charts amazing since it was designed by the incredibly talented Tamara J. Events. But capturing the vision that Meredith and Tamara created with their classic spin of white and gold complimented by the beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets created by Marianne Healow of Tango & Foxtrot …LOVE!!! The reception was held at the San Francisco restaurant Trou Normand, recently named by Reverie Gallery as one of the most beautiful industrial wedding venues in the United States. Perfectly crisp white linens came from La Tavola Fine Linen Rental and the wedding cake, which displayed the Lovell Family crest, was made with love by Cafe Madeleine. The total effect was stunning – talk about a dream team of vendors!
One of a Kind Wedding Dress
Meredith’s wore two dresses (LOVE AGAIN!!). Her first dress was by Vera Wang, which had been #flawlessly redesigned by a seamstress to embody Meredith’s vision, and her veil was made from some of the train they cut away, and the redone bodice and peplum were made from horsehair, I loved her unique touches! Her second dress was also perfect and in complete alignment with the style of the day, which she got from Calvin Klein.
The Complete San Francisco Wedding Experience
Garrett and Meredith’s ceremony was held at one of my very favs in the whole wide world, the iconic San Francisco City Hall, and then the entire wedding party took a Classic Cable Car trolley around the city past the ballpark, with a stop at Cupid’s arrow and a drive through Fisherman’s Wharf, on the way to their reception at Trou Normand. Afterwards they were off to the Palace of Fine Arts and finished at Crissy Field with everyone’s favorite big red bridge in the background.
My sweet Meredith, in honor of your love of black & white images almost the whole blog is done that way 😉
Congratulations love birds! See you in the Big Apple or Nashville one of these days!
