A Surprise Elopement in Picturesque SF

Shasta and Rebecca planned to get married later this year, but a spontaneous decision to elope turned into a beautiful ceremony and a picturesque jaunt around the city.

Shasta planned every detail in very little time. She even found her wedding dress the day before. The ceremony was held at San Francisco's Civic Center Courthouse, which made for epic photography filled with sweeping staircases and enormous windows that let in dreamy swaths of light. Joined by their closest friends, Rebecca and Shasta exchanged sweet, tear-jerking vows.

After the ceremony, the wedding party took the F-line to Boulevard Restaurant for lunch. Then headed out to the Embarcadero to wander around the waterfront, before making their way downtown to a rooftop garden for a grand finale.
