Excited to finally have a chance to share some images from Charlotte and Eric's fun two-day celebration at City Hall and Dogpatch WineWorks! I often hear from engaged couples that during the planning process they struggle with how to decide between having an intimate wedding with just those who are closest to them, versus a larger more inclusive event. Charlotte and Eric got the best of both worlds by holding their ceremony at City Hall with close friends and family, and then holding a larger reception the next day at Dogpatch WineWorks. City Hall is such a great place to elope because it's not only cost effective but also an incredibly beautiful and iconic setting. There are gorgeous places to take photos all over that building and the light is always amazing. Lily of the Valley created Charlotte's sweet bouquet. I love how the yellow billy balls and flowering mimosa tie in with all the golden tones of the space!
Dogpatch WineWorks has a great modern, rustic-chic feel and Charlotte chose design details that complemented the space perfectly. Charlotte and Eric also chose to donate their flower arrangements (made by the bride herself) to Random Acts of Flowers, an awesome non-profit in the Bay Area that upcycles flowers and gives them to individuals in healthcare facilities who could use some cheering up. Such a cool thing to do!
With the guys from Dart DJ behind the turntables and Betty Zlatchin Catering serving up delicious bites, it was a perfect party in the city. And just goes to show that you can have your cake and eat it too when it comes to planning your wedding!
