FIREHOUSE 8 WEDDING / LAFAYETTE PARK
Ugh I forget just how lovely this wedding turned out. Here's a sneak peak. We use to live right around the corner from Alamo square park, I miss going to that park, the amazing view of the city from there, walking through it and getting coffee on Divis. Sigh...but I love Oakland & our 1926 Spanish house. The weather is better and the vibe here feels good. I'll always miss the urban feel of SF, the walkability and how the fog at various times of day can feel so cozy & somehow romantic.
Emily & Jon got ready in Japan town, which made for some fun photo ops. Nice touch with the Sushi socks, Jon. The florals are from my lovely friend Lorena of Home Sweet Flowers. She has a style that I can always recognize. The green hues of the bridesmaid's dresses were rich & pretty with the magenta pops of color. During the ceremony, Emily's dad played a song on his saxophone, so lovely and so sweet. It was nice for guests to just walk over to the reception at Firehouse 8 from Lafayette park. What a great authentic SF experience.
Firehouse 8 is owned by a really nice lady, who's been in the neighborhood for decades and also owns a boutique on Polk. I met her once when BHLDN invited me to an event there. She invited me & my friend Kate of Pieces by Violet up to the roof to check out the view. It's an amazing SF space with some original architectural detail, exposed brick, and a huge skylight. I need to find out who the caterer was cuz the food was so so good, one of the best wedding meals I've had.
Lovely wedding to be a part of.
