San Francisco is a city of colorful love, and it was the perfect place for Max and Ben to celebrate their intimate San Francisco wedding. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Max and Ben began part one of their two-part wedding celebration. Their wedding coordinator, Luciana Guerrero with Events by GS beautifully designed and coordinated their wedding with all the right touches.

They started their day on the slopes in the trees near Golden Gate Park laughing, dancing, and taking in the vast views. They then headed to the Mission district, where they wandered through the vibrant street art.

As the sun began to set, Max and Ben made their way to the Stable Cafe for their intimate San Francisco wedding ceremony. The venue was filled with flowers and candles, creating a romantic and intimate atmosphere that brilliantly enframed the love between them. It has a manicured garden patio with a warm inviting atmosphere and rustic touches. Tears of joy ran down both of their faces as they exchanged the most meaningful vows. Not a dry eye in the house!

As the night fell, the venue was transformed into an epic dance party, with music, laughter, and joy. The atmosphere was electric, as the space was filled with sounds of endless laughter. Our Geekoto flashes didn’t miss one shot and our MagMod modifiers cast dramatic light in all the right places. Max and Ben’s celebration brought together people from all walks of life. Some of their most colorful friends showed up with sexy smiles and fabulous dance moves. Max and Ben’s wedding was a day that will be remembered by everyone lucky enough to be there. San Francisco was the best setting for them and it was a reminder of the power of love to bring people together.

This coming season they are planning on an outdoor ceremony at The Griffin House on the Columbia River Gorge, with about 125 attendees. In their words, “Our overall goal for the wedding is to celebrate craft and friendship — we will be wearing designs by artists we admire; we’re bringing in some amazing drag queens to perform; and we want the food to reflect local, unique perspectives; and we want to hire photographers with a real artistic point of view. Your work captures real movement and energy, and your images have an emotional fervency that I don’t often get to see in wedding pictures. Your deep treatment of color and angle reminds me a bit of David LaChappelle, whom I adore.”

We are mesmerized by these two and fueled with great anticipation to capture their 2nd wedding this coming September 8th, 2023 in Oregon. Check out their Griffin House Wedding story here.
