We bounced around just about everywhere with this wedding. Bridal party and all, we started at the Westin (a great hotel to get ready), had the ceremony at the Randall Museum, then sped off for a 2 hour photo-walk hitting the mural at 18th and Church, Dolores Park, the mural on 19th and Dolores, Union Square cable cars and then back to the Westin! It was a great adventure.
Aubrey and Steven were a referral by a pair of my very dear friends, so I knew this wedding was going to be a blast! It was a such a beautiful location and such a laid-back wedding, that I wish I could have stayed perched on that mountain for a week. Ralston White is a heck of a venue, surrounded by redwoods on a hill that dips into a quarry pond a color blue I've seen in nature only twice before. I'll remember this "fairy-tale" like wedding for years to come :)
If ever there was a couple whom could say "we've weathered through thick and thin, through good times and in bad" this couple is it. They had a rough wedding day, both sick, with the threat of rain on the horizon, and the chilly air swirling about the Bridge's ceremony site. But as miserable as some brides and grooms might have been in these conditions, Loryn and Chris rose above it all. Loryn floated down the aisle and Chris stood proud and tall as she approached him. It was a beautiful day, because no matter how many obstacles came up, they never lost sight of each other, smiling and laughing every moment they could.
