Wedding dress alternatives don’t get any more chic than this bridal jumpsuit by Rime Arodaky! The Ganeys knew that San Francisco City Hall was the first place they had to shoot after their recent move to the Bay Area, and this incredible shoot was born – the jumpsuit was the perfect alternative to a white wedding dress while still feeling bridal and fresh! Frequent collaborator Gather Design Company got a taste of the SF Flower Mart to create the bride’s stunning black and white bouquet, adding a beautiful organic touch to the ornate interior of one of the nation’s most beautiful city halls! Incredible film portraits capture the light and grandeur of this spectacular setting for an intimate wedding!
The Ganeys wanted to think outside the box when it came to bridal fashion, and the Patsy jumpsuit by Rime Arodaky ticked every box! The long lace sleeves and nude illusion bodice flowed into a sheer skirt overlay that added a playful train to the fitted white pants. The combination is utterly bridal and yet totally fresh!
Gather Design Company let the setting and the fashion guide the floral choices – with a simple elopement ceremony, the bouquet would be the focal point when it came to flowers. She created a black and white bouquet to pop against the white marble interiors and gilded accents of San Francisco City Hall. She incorporated hellebore, astrantia, silene, anemones, garden roses, and black cherry calla lilies to create the bride’s airy monochrome bouquet.
These scalloped edge peep toe Sam Edelman heels were the perfect way to add a stylish black shoe to the bride’s crisp white jumpsuit!
The Baroque dome and elaborate Corinthian columns inside San Francisco City Hall offers such picturesque backdrops for portrait sessions, and The Ganeys made full use of the incredible light streaming in through the patterned windows!
This chic black and white palette for the bride and groom is the perfect way to add timeless elegance to a fresh and modern wedding!
You can’t get married at San Francisco City Hall and miss out on this incredible staircase! The location makes for fairy-tale perfection at every angle!
What is a city hall wedding without a triumphant ‘Just Married’ shot outside!
