Breanne & Adam’s San Francisco City Hall Elopement

breanne & adam01
A gorgeous Beaux-Arts building appointed with a sweeping staircase, San Francisco City Hall is perhaps the most popular place to get married in San Francisco on a weekday, with local, national, and international couples alike making their way through its doors. It’s also a common site for protests. We encountered both when we arrived on March 14 to capture Breanne and Adam’s nuptials, but thankfully the clutch of protestors wielding signs to save City College of San Francisco didn’t prevent anyone from getting hitched that day.

Since we had a full hour between their marriage license application and their civil ceremony appointment time, we had the pleasure of getting to know our stylish couple, who had flown in from Reno. Breanne is an artist and events manager and thoughtfully coordinated everything, from her fanciful spring-inspired dress, mustard-colored cape, and mustard-colored shoes to Adam’s green tie and pocket square. She even put together Adam’s boutonniere and her lovely bouquet of ranunculus, white roses, and spray roses.

At one point while we were watching a couple get married under the grand rotunda, the groom broke down in tears. Breanne almost did the same but Adam came to her rescue (the other bride ran to the bathroom to get some paper towels for her groom). She managed to hold it together for their own sweet ceremony. Here are some of our favorite moments from our time together.
