Thanks Wild About You Photography for sharing these shots!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, two members of the Rebel Alliance found each other against all odds. They tied the knot yesterday at The SF Swedenborgian Church & suddenly all was well with the world. Congratulations, Jenny & Adam! Here are a few sneak peeks from their stellar wedding (not pictured: Endor the Ewok). Stay tuned for more! 💜 #elyhallowedding

Love comes in many shapes and forms, but one thing always holds true: "Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends." -1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Happy Valentine's Day to all you kind and patient lovers!💞💝🥰

We love to see people expressing their unique style in our historic space. Beautiful ceremony for a fun couple!

Sneak peek of what I was up to this past weekend in California! It's not every day you get to capture the love of two people in a 120 year old venue and then proceed to party in a 1940s supper club, all in the heart of San Francisco. Thank you Dana and Will for letting me capture this beautiful day!


Wow what a beautiful shot from Helen & Zhe's wedding! ❤️👰

Helen and Zhe | sneak peek


The lovely Gardiner family stopped by for a visit today to show their children what is now a piece of their family's history as well as California history! Jodi & John had a Christmas wedding in Dec. of 2009. 🎄🤵👰


Today we were visited by Mary Karne celebrating her 70th wedding anniversary with her son & daughter-in-law. They even found her 1948 entry in our registry! Though her husband Bernard has passed, she was moved to tears during her visit. We love celebrating the anniversaries of couples married here! #lifegoals #marriagegoals ❤️


The Parish House is conveniently located next to the church and serves as the perfect reception area. Our garden is used for cocktail hour.
