San Francisco City Hall Wedding: Dionne + Damien

san francisco elopement

When Dionne + Damien decided to get married, plans changed so many times due to family sprawled around the country that they finally decided to just elope in San Francisco! San Francisco’s City Hall is probably one of the prettiest City Hall’s in the country. With Dionne being an interior designer and Damien a musician, this couple definitely has a gorgeous and unique sense of style! After their City Hall wedding, they opted for a sweet bride + groom picnic celebration and I’m so happy Tinywater Photography was there to capture it all! Plus they plan to share these photos with friends + family at a later celebration in their hometown of Atlanta. Congrats to Dionne + Damien!

After Dionne + Damien said their vows at San Francisco’s City Hall, they made their way towards the Presidio to capture photos of their Bohemian chic celebratory picnic. Dionne said it best when it came to describing what was coming up next: “Damien is a musician who loves the outdoors and I’ve been doing interior design for over 10 years. We are both fun loving and silly, so we would love for our shoot to represent who we are…. a little boho, a little rock, a little sweet, a little silly with lots of love! Anthropologie-ish with a hit of 70′s rock.

All of these little details really made this one special picnic! At this little party for two, Dionne + Damien shared a wedding cake and red velvet cupcakes from Copenhagen Bakery, some champagne, and lots of kisses. :) Oh, and did I mention that Dionne did all the florals for the day? Gorgeous job Dionne!
