A Bright + Fun San Francisco City Hall Wedding

What a better way to start the beginning of a long weekend with the summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings hitting newstands today! I love seeing all their creative ideas and the real weddings they feature are with some of the most creative couples. And guess what – Shira Shivada, the real weddings editor, is letting me share some photos from one of their real weddings! Thanks Shira!! I LOVE how fun + stylish this San Francisco CIty Hall wedding is. The couple were married at City Hall, then had a parade (with that cute banner below designed by San Francisco artist Jeff Canham) to the restaurant where the reception was held. Such a beautiful day :)
