If you live in San Francisco then you know that there was a major demolition done on Doyle Drive this past weekend. Unfortunately, my best friend and her fiance had planned their wedding in the Presidio, just 100 ft. from where the demolition was going to take place. What did this mean? It meant finding a new church and reception location THREE WEEKS before their wedding. Can you even imagine? They handled the entire situation EXTREMELY well (and became famous thanks to a news report on them....people kept saying, "Your here for THAT wedding?! We saw them on the news!".) and in the end, everything came to together and you would have never known what they had just gone through. It was AMAZING.
I tried to gather as many pictures as I could from the weekend but I think I spent more time talking, eating, drinking and celebrating to get as many as I would have liked. The ceremony was held at Calvary Presbyterian Church and the reception was held at The Ferry Building, which was BEYOND and probably my most favorite reception location I have been to. Every detail was accounted for and the party lasted all night. It could not have been any better. Here are a few pictures that I love from the weekend.
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. R!

And where are my hubby and I?
I swear every picture did not come out that we took together!
Here is one that is okay, but I blame the sun for ruining this one.
And yes, I am aware the groom is no where to be found. I have a TON of photos of the bride but forgot to take a picture of the happy couple after the ceremony. At that point, I was only thinking about celebrating. Sorry J!
