Real Moment Photos of Ashley + Nick on their Wedding Day- San Francisco, Ca.

As I am writing this I remember… Ashley and Nick are from Tulsa,Oklahoma and we are serious rivals today. Today is the Golden State Warriors and The Oklahoma City Thunders in today’s Basketball Playoff- Game 4. However, I love this couple despite being major sport rivals today,LOL.  I am about to present and share to you… Ashley and Nick, married on April 5th,2016 here in San Francisco. Ashley contacted me a month before asking if I could come to her hotel at the Chancellor Hotel here in San Francisco at 6 a.m because she needed to be out and ready to go by 9 a.m and I said yes, I would love too. Ashley said she loves pink cheeks and pink lips and I was super excited to use my new Nars Lip pencil in Jardin des Plantes. I knew this color would look amazing on her and I was right !!  We never had a chance to do a Pre Wedding Hair and Makeup Pre View because the just landed. I told her to send me some pictures of what she likes , she requested volume and simplicity and so we created this look for her… Nick is a chef and she told me that Nick and her got inspired being in this food centric city , that he has applied for chef positions and I am crossing my fingers that there dreams come true. Always with Love for couples who make that commitment to each other. Congratulations…

Is San Francisco a great place to have a Wedding and if so, Why?

San Francisco is a magical city, it has many different cultures, great year round weather, it never snows, and never gets too hot. Great hotels in all price ranges. Great food, and lots of great venues to get married. There are also great Elopement Destinations, and many things to do before and post Wedding, for you and your guests.

Everything you can think of for a 1st class city.

The City has a variety of transportation to choose from. San Francisco International Airport is only a 10-25 min drive to the heart of the city (Union Square) depending on the time of the day, of course, without traffic. As soon as you land at SFO, before you know it, you are in the City! For you and your Wedding guests, we have Taxis, Uber, Lyft, Bart (which is the city’s subway, and it costs $8.95 one way, which will take you directly into Union Square).

 

*A little side note, If you plan on getting married at San Francisco City Hall, I would suggest taking the Yellow Taxi for added classic photo prop, for great pictures.

 

We also have a great double decker, the Red Big Bus that will take you to all the major landmarks around the city for $45.00 for 24 hours. Great for guest who want to entertain themselves, and for you! We have an abundance of restaurants that will appeal to everyone’s taste buds. From our local Mission Burritos and Tacos, to California’s fusion Cuisine and everything in between. San Francisco will not disappoint.

Interested in San Francisco Landmarks? – This 49 square mile offers, beaches, bridges, beautiful parks, hiking trails, lots of piers, unique landscapes and neighborhoods to admire. Natural backdrops for your wedding day photos will be endless.

Stay tuned as I talk in more detail about San Francisco, Weddings in San Francisco, beauty, hair & makeup, hotels and more.

Xoxo,

Lia
