San Francisco Walk Through A Wedding

What can I say? After winning a ticket to Justin & Mary's San Francisco Walk Through A Wedding, I was soooo ecstatic to attend! After almost four hours of driving, we pulled into the Embassy Suites parking lot, and I made my way up to the room full of excitement, and to be honest, a little trepidation. It was fun to see photographers I already knew as I stepped into the room and found a seat. Grabbing a tan Moleskine tied with a blue bow, I started writing furiously as the information started flowing. A flow that continued throughout the day as Justin and Mary shared everything they did on the wedding day from their arrival to departure. I drove away that night utterly exhausted, but overflowing with so many new ideas and new friends. Justin and Mary, thank you so much for sharing this experience with me!

Started the day out right with this gorgeous Justin Alexander wedding dress. The details on it were exquisite!

Shoes, like these red heels, add the perfect pop of color, and Vera Wang anything is always a yes!

The fascinators and hat from Lo Boheme added the right touch of 1940s flair.

Elizabeth and Ryan flew in from Baltimore to be our models for the day. Lisa's amazing hair and makeup turned Elizabeth into a modern, retro bride.

With its vaulted ceilings and beautiful natural light streaming through the windows, St. Mark's made an amazing backdrop for the wedding ceremony.

With that look in his eyes, you can tell Ryan loves Elizabeth just as much as, if not more than, the day they got married four years ago!

An old typewriter, cherry pie, real antique letters, and vintage accents were pulled together in the basement of San Francisco's Bourbon & Branch for our Boxcars & Bugle Boys themed reception.

Never saw such a cute Candy Girl!

The bridal party looked like they stepped out of a USO poster.

Elizabeth, I know all the Walk Through A Wedding attendees in other areas must have been jealous that we got you for our bride!

That looks like a really fun "wedding"--1940's is my favorite era! I love the bride's dress too. It looks super fun and swing-y! =) Thanks for posting, Lydia!

@Jessica I'll be hanging out with my family before and have to drive home afterward, but I'd love to get together some other time. We'll talk tomorrow! :-D
