Mary & Henry’s Whimsical City Hall Ceremony

mary & henry 1

Remember Mary and Henry and their most-excellent bridge-spotting engagement adventure? We caught up with them a few weeks later when they tied the knot at San Francisco City Hall, a stunning location if there ever was one. Although it was early Thursday morning, the place was bustling with other couples eager to get married. Only one judge was available to perform all the ceremonies that day, however, so appointments were soon pushed back. For us this meant one thing: more photos!

We adored Mary’s 1950s-style swing dress and poufy petticoat, and Henry’s snappy gray suit. We squealed when they broke out the signs they made to commemorate the occasion: ladybugs proclaiming “I do” and “Do I!” and giant Scrabble tiles spelling out “FINALLY!” for 13 points. We laughed when they strapped a plastic ball and chain to Henry’s ankle. Most of all, we loved photographing them interacting with the 22 family members and friends who joined them that day, even though technically only six guests (including photographers) are allowed to witness the ceremony.

In the end, they exchanged vows, they kissed, and everyone cheered. It might not have followed strict fairytale protocol, but there was definitely a Cinderella moment (animated below) and we hope Mary and Henry live happily ever after. Do we? We do!
