Real Wedding: Zena + Lance’s Sweet San Francisco Wedding

Happy Monday! Today I have the sweetest wedding to share with you guys sent from photographer Olivia of Olivia Leigh Photographie. It took place in the East Bay area of San Francisco. A bit about the day from Olivia:

Zena and Lance were just the sweetest, and the day was an incredibly perfect celebration of friends, family and the important things that mattered. I found it to be so refreshing in its simplicity, and of course Zena looked gorgeous in her hipstery short BCBG wedding dress. The wedding was largely a labor of love from friends and family: the invitations were designed and hand-drawn by Zena’s sister and a friend; cupcakes were baked by friends prior to the wedding; the band was Zena’s sister’s boyfriends band who kept the guests dancing all night long; catering was by a taqueria in Berkeley; and the centerpieces were reused from a grad school colleague who serendipitously was married at the same space the day before.
