I loved Marla from the second I met her. I mean who wouldn’t love someone who hires you for a dessert shoot at the Presidio Social Club, then models for it? Donuts for days! Over time, we bonded over shared cocktails, bites, laughs, tears, and love. Lots of love.
Every detail Marla told me about Conor, made me know I would love him, after all he snagged Marla, so he had to be awesome!
How’d They Meet?
Marla and Conor met at The Page on Divisadero Street in San Francisco, their favorite dive bar. They have been together for over four years now and live happily in Sausalito where they both share an obsession for the Bay Area and all it has to offer.
The Big Day
The happy couple chose to hold their special day at the beautiful Maritime Museum in San Francisco. One of their favorite things about this venue was the spectacular view overlooking Ghiradelli Square, Alcatraz, and the bay.
First thing’s first, Marla was a knock out in her Monique Lhuiler dress. There are no two ways about it…knockout! The wedding dress looked like it was made just for her and as such was one of the details Marla was most excited about on her big day, Conor seeing her for the time in her dress. It knocked my socks off and I wasn’t even the groom!
When Marla turned the corner, Conor happened to be looking down at his nephew, but when he raised his head and laid eyes on his drop dead gorgeous bride, she took his breath away. It was by far my very favorite moment of their day. Marla was right. Conor lost it and took about an hour to pull himself back together. Those first 3 seconds after he saw her were simply beautiful.
As if she could be any more stunning, Marla was pampered and primped with hair and makeup by Allie Stubbs of Social Beauty Company. The natural and classy look allowed Marla to shine her true self throughout the entire evening.
Now we have to talk about these ridiculously gorgeous Kate Spade shoes that Marla wore…holy gold bling batman! I could’ve done a post on just the shoes. Well, you can see for yourself in the photos below. AMAZING!
After the ceremony was over and guests ran out of tissues, the night progressed into an evening of great food and epic dance moves.
Dinner was catered by Above & Beyond Catering and with booze flowing from Quality Beverage, guest flocked to the dance floor and boogied to the jams of DJ Niall of Four Leaf Entertainment. The bride and groom had their first dance to “From Head to Toe” by Lisa Lisa.
As they say, “What happens at Marla and Conor’s wedding, stays at Marla and Conor’s wedding”… wait no, here are the photos to prove it!
Marla and Conor, I wish you a lifetime full of joy, Bay Area sunsets that inspire you, smiles that make your cheeks hurt, cocktails that knock your socks off, dance parties until the sun comes up and of course…more fabulous gold shoes!
