A Wedding Fit for the Great American Music Hall

A second generation couple to be married in San Francisco, Carla and Adam held their wedding and reception at the Great American Music Hall. Their ceremony mixed old classics with San Francisco favorites — quotes from The Wonder Years and Albert Einstein, a local psychedelic Motown throwdown band, and ‘I Left My Heart In San Francisco.” To honor Adam’s Iowa upbringing the signature cocktail featured Templeton Rye, but the reception showcased Philz coffee and had mini bottles of San Francisco’s favorite aperitif, Fernet Branca, as favors. After all those great details, the couple added their personal touch as sneakerheads by wearing their favorite sneakers during the reception.
