Angelica and Brian celebrated their love with a catholic church ceremony followed by a reception at the Marine’s Memorial Club. Their day was filled with so much love and happiness that radiates in ever single one of their pictures. Before we get into their wedding pictures, let first start at the beginning with their love story:
Brian and I met on October 28th, 2017 at a bar in San Francisco. We were both there celebrating Halloween with our separate group of friends. I was talking to one of my friends and that was when I first saw Brian walking by her. He caught my eye, smiled, and I smiled back. Afterwards, he walked over to me and the rest is history.-Angelica
We got engaged on December 29th, 2018. Brian proposed at the same place we had our first date and the exact spot we had our first kiss at the Palace of Fine Arts. This place means so much to us and that is we choose it for our engagement session.
We always knew we wanted to get married in San Francisco since that is where we fell in love. Also, this place is where both our parents grew up and where we currently live. We also knew we wanted to get married at St. Peter and Paul church in North Beach. Not only is it a beautiful Catholic Church but it is a special place as Brian’s parents were married there.
We choose the Marines Memorial Hotel due to its beautiful ballroom, location, and history. It has character and offered a lot of what we were looking for in a location such as ambiance and SF view. When we first walked into the ballroom we both immediately felt excitement and knew this was our venue. We even started to dance in the middle of the room to vision our first dance.
Our wedding theme is San Francisco! We are even getting a SF trolley to drive our wedding party from the church to the venue. We can’t wait to see those photos! Our plan is to mark all the tables as a different neighborhood and wedding cake to have the Golden Gate Bridge and city skyline. Our colors are gold, all shades of red/berry, and navy.
We are looking forward to celebrating our love with family and friends. We want to have amazing drinks, great food, and lots of dancing!
Angelica had 6 of her closest friends stand with her in the bridal party, who all wore beautiful floor length red bridesmaid dresses. Angelica’s incredible makeup was done by TK Glam Brian and his guys opted for slick blue suits with a red bowtie. The couple wanted their first look to be as those chapel doors opened when Angelica walked down the aisle, so the bridal parties stayed in separate hotels until the big moment.
St. Peter & Paul Church located in the North Beach district of San Fransisco towers 191 feet and is rich in history. Some of the foundation can be traced back to 1884, before the 1904 earthquake! This Church is such an icon for North Beach and was an important place for Angelica and Brian to say their I dos.
After this beautiful couple where officially Mr. and Mrs, they hopped on the O’Farrell Jones & Hyde Line street car, popped a little champagne and celebrated their first moments of marriage with the closest friends! During one of the first meetings with Angelica and Brian, she expressed how excited she was for pictures in front of the trolly so we are thrilled at how incredible they turned out!
Angelica and Brian’s reception had so many special little details. They continued with the red color scheme and brought in some gold accents to match the incredible ceiling detailing in the ballroom. Plus their welcome table featured canvas prints from their engagement session!
How awesome is their football lovers custom cake topper!?
There’s nothing more special than walking through the city that holds so many memories. San Fransisco is where Angelica and Brian met, fell in love, got married, and continue to spend their lives. To them, it will always be home.
