Katie + John

One Leidesdorff | February 26
6 • 23 • 2011  |  Real Weddings
Katie and John were really fun to work with for two main reasons; one was because they are dear friends of ours, and two, because Katie new exactly what she wanted, and knew she had only six months to do it in. With the date quickly set, and the color palette of all shades of metallics in place, the planning frenzy began. We decided on the new downtown San Francisco venue of One Leidesdorff. This is an old bank, and the bar is actually the old teller windows. It has a lot of charm, and with the right colors and lighting can be a magical place where you can party into the wee hours of the night (sometimes hard to come by in the Bay Area). Another added perk, you can rent out the alley next to the building, which we did, and held the cocktail reception there with a full micro brew bar.  
 
They then found their photography match with Joel Flory of Flory Photo, and were so excited to have them cover their wedding day. It was a very long day, with a very large wedding party and 322 guests, but Brittani ran the day perfectly so that I could be a guest at their wonderful celebration. This was also the day that snow was in the forecast for downtown San Francisco. It didn't end up snowing, except for a few flurries the night before, but it was definitely chilly, so our tents and cozy indoor reception were a welcome sight to the guests.  
 
We are so happy to share these images with you, and we'll start with her lovely coat handed down from her grandmother that looked so divine on her!
They popped into the Philly Club with the entire wedding party!
Congratulations to Katie & John!
