Shannon and Daniel’s San Francisco Fairmont and City Hall wedding screamed lavish and luxurious. Honestly, I was loving every second of it. I will forever be grateful to the couple for letting me take part in their special day.
To begin, Shannon got ready at the Fairmont in San Francisco, while Daniel was a few blocks down at another hotel.
The San Francisco Fairmont is often used as a wedding venue! However, not very many know that it also makes for an amazing getting-ready space. I recommend booking a balcony room! That way you can utilize the gorgeous balcony for photos!
Not only does this venue have incredible rooms, but it also has a beautiful garden. Trust me when I say that it makes for the most beautiful first look and bridal photos location.
The best part is that the San Francisco Fairmont is located near downtown San Fran which is close to part two of Shannon and Daniel’s wedding.
Shannon and Daniel rented out city hall for the entire day’s event.
We flipped the ceremony space which was by the famous staircase into the reception space. If you do end up doing that, make sure to get good spot lighting because the venue can be very very dark without it.
The decor for their wedding was incredible. They used silk flowers to decorate and make the entire space feel even grander than it started out! I didn’t even know that was possible, but they managed to make it happen!
It was so sweet to see the parents of the bride and groom come together and meet.
They shared the sweet stories of their love and the couple mentioned how they looked up to their parents to model a healthy and long relationship.
I am truly so happy to have been here for their special day, and I hope you all enjoy the photos!
