Modern and Chic San Francisco City Hall Elopement

I love me a good elopement. Even if the couple dresses up to the nines and invites a shit ton of guests – it STILL ends up being cheaper than a traditional small wedding. Take Lizzy and Timothy's San Francisco elopement at City Hall. The bride and groom wore designer clothes, invited some close family and friends, and hired a kick ass photographer. The result? Pure AWESOMENESS.

From the bride, "I didn't suspect Tim's little shenanigan when he took me to Victoria
Beach in Los Angeles. He ordered the ring over the phone and had it sent
to his brother in Arizona. His friend in Los Angeles also gave him his
pocket list to propose. The last puzzle was to have his brother in
Arizona to bring the ring. He made up the plan as an ordinary field trip
and wanted to catch up with his brother. Without a doubt I thought we
were just going to do some sightseeing and some photo shoots since we
both love photography. When we were at the beach and our friends
"pretended" to take photos for us. All in a sudden, he kneed down and
pulled the ring from the camera bag and I was shocked. I guessed I had
to say 'Yes' for his great acting performance. He said he wanted to
give me a surprise and he certainly did.

We have been in the relationship for almost three years now. One thing
that keeps us bonded is we both love taking a lot of pictures when we
travel. Tim and I both love taking pictures with those vintage 120 film
cameras. That uncertainty of exposure and the wait of film development
seem to attract us over and over. We like to discuss the composition
once the film is developed and to spot every little amazement that was
not noticed in the viewfinder.

Our friends witnessed many precious moments of our love story, so it
would be honored to have them included in our wedding photos. Joseph had
so many creative ideas and we had so much fun shooting the group
pictures at the City Hall. That dazzled our ceremony!

San Francisco City Hall's beauty and grandeur are undeniable. We
attended our best friends' ceremony and were profoundly moved when the
marriage commissioner gave a short speech about how important and sacred
the marriage is. A few months later, we came back here for our own
ceremony. It was a precious moment to be pronounced 'You are now husband
and wife.'"

OMGah. How much do you ADORE this stylish urban elopement?
