The Wedding Party

Being the frequent party hosts that we are, my husband and I decided to dub our September 2010 wedding the Wedding Party. Held in San Francisco, the party took place at Cafe Du Nord, a speakeasy-turned-bar and music venue, with the ceremony upstairs at Swedish American Hall, a more churchy looking space that also hosts concerts. Very talented Berkeley photographer Tom Tomkinson took the pics and helped up set up a "photo booth" on one of the red velvet couches. Click through to see the snaps. Photos by Tom Tomkinson

Andrew's attendants were his sister and two bros. 
Mine were my brother and my two best friends. 
All the guys wore matching ties, but their own suits. The girls picked dresses they liked within a suggested palette.

The handy thrones at the Swedish Hall made for fun photos.

Very cool corsage, by our florist Chestnut and Vine.
I wore a family heirloom cameo on my dress.
My nails have never looked this nice before or since.
I loved the chocolate cosmos flowers in the bouquet. 
The florist Svenja found the most unusual materials.

The cake: red velvet with cream cheese and pecan filling and buttercream icing by Two For Two Cakes.
It was beautiful but also like the best cake ever. Plus, red velvet cake, red velvet couches? I just noticed that.
On stage, giving our welcome. There wasn't a seated dinner, just tables for sitting and eating (slightly) fancy bar food like mini corn dogs, mini sandwiches, roasted veggies, etc.
