11.11.11 Mission Wedding & Trash the Dress Session

This wedding was such an absolute pleasure to be part of, so quirky and fun and outside the norm.  April and Sam decided that instead of having one big wedding they would have three small weddings all over the world!  The first was in Bali, the second in Venice and the third here in San Francisco.

April & Sam live in the Mission and wanted to give their out of town guests a real taste of the city.  They love art, fashion & technology, and dig the Mission graffiti style so much that they commissioned an artist to use the foyer & staircase to their amazing loft as a huge canvas to go wild (above).  Check out pictures of their amazing place:

That's me going over the wedding plan with the groom, his sons & his Dad

The Bride designed this dress for her friend to wear

Obsessed with the Bride's closet!!

April's amazing Alexander McQueen dress and incredibly cool and daring veil!  Not to mention her drop dead gorgeous Maid of Honor, Anastassia who's wedding I planned this past summer.

Guests were told to come to a parking location and were picked up on a bus and transported to the ceremony site, a chic Mission loft that we transformed into a beautiful ceremony location.

That's me getting the Bride down the aisle!

Guests were then taken downtown to Water Bar for a delicious meal with views of the bridge.

Then on to the afterparty at the couple's super cool apartment.

The next day, a trash the dress session with their incredible photographer they flew out from their Italian wedding, Mauro Pozzer

So different and so much fun, thank you April & Sam!
