St Ignatius Church / Julia Morgan Ballroom
J & K were both living in Chicago, but got married at St Ignatius in San Francisco with the reception at the elegant Julia Morgan Ballroom. K went to school at USF which made getting married at St Ignatius extra special. Both doctors, (who got engaged in an ER room!) this fun loving couple had such a fun day in store for their friends and family. They rented a trolley out to sightsee around town, stopping by Alamo square for that iconic San Francisco photo with the painted ladies in the background as well as Nob Hill near the Fairmont!
I had so much fun capturing this wedding. To me this was a perfectly planned “San Francisco” wedding. Classic and elegant with a touch of fun. St Ignatius is always such a beautiful place to have a wedding ceremony. I always enjoy the light, the arches, textures and colors of the building. Julia Morgan Ballroom is also always a venue I am happy to shoot. The woodwork is so beautiful, and there are these large windows that look out over the city. Since its by California street you still see the cable cars trawling in the streets. Speaking of, J&K rented out cable cars for transportation for guests to and from the venue!
The couple really made it easy to capture these fun and beautiful images. They had a larger wedding party, and it really added to the energy and excitement of the day. It was a joy to see this couple not only so in love, but their friends who were also so excited for them. This really shines through especially at Julia Morgan Ballroom where the reception was held. Their friends really cut a rug and there was a live band- which I always encourage. For some reason I always see the most dancing with a live band!
