San Francisco City Hall Elopement

San Francisco City Hall Elopement. Cat and Joe wanted a simple, sophisticated, San Francisco wedding! They planned a no-fuss elopement at the enchanting City Hall. And while there were many couples getting married that day, Cat and Joe reserved the fourth-floor balcony so they could enjoy their intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends.

Cat, ever the fashion-forward bride, wore jaw-dropping heels for her big day. The colorful chevron beading made a stand-out appearance.

Inside the rotunda, the exquisite architecture and stately design requires no additional outside influences – it’s impressive on its own.

Cat wore a long-sleeved gown with an open back and a side slit, perfect for showing off her dazzling heels.

The dress also featured lovely detail on the wrists and bodice for a feminine finish. Her bouquet was an elegant collection of oversized blooms, tied with light blue silk ribbons.

After the ceremony, the couple and their guests headed to a local restaurant for a small celebration. They shared laughs, toasts and even slices of a one-tier wedding cake made just for them.

As the sun began to dip, they made their way down to the Sutro Baths and Lands End area to capture a few sunset photos in between the trees.
