San Francisco City Hall and Bimbos Wedding Photos with Shab and Joe

Jim Vetter Photography proudly presents the wedding experience of Shab & Joe!

The night before their wedding, my friends Shab and Joe had a fantastic rehearsal party at Wingtip in downtown San Francisco. Wingtip has a beautiful private club on the penthouse level of the building. Their guests enjoyed great live music, killer wines, and hand-rolled cigars.

The wedding ceremony was held the next day with the ceremony at San Francisco City Hall. It was attended by family and a handful of close friends. They took their vows on the top level balcony. This is my favorite spot in City Hall because the light is so beautiful.

Shab made her entrance to the reception by marching up the street with a New Orleans jazz band called Brass Monkey! It was the most fun I’ve ever seen in a grand entrance. Shab’s friends and family joined her for the procession.

Bimbos 365 Club has been around since 1931 and has seen a lot over the years. What it saw on February 20th, 2016 was a once in a lifetime celebration of friends and family with great music, delicious food from Taste Catering, and incredible dance performances.

The DJ was the one and only Mancub of Space Cowboys fame. He kept the music to the high standards of this eclectic audience. The Duniya Dance and Drum Company was so entertaining! If you’ve never seen this kind of dance, you will be in for a treat. You help but smile as you watch them. They do it with such joy.

Shab and Joe wanted to throw a party that gave them the opportunity to cut loose with their friends. They simply wanted to have fun and make it all about the celebration with the people they love. They certainly succeeded!

620 Jones San Francisco Wedding Photos – Dawn and Steve

My good friends, Dawn & Steve were married at 620 Jones in San Francisco. You may remember their awesome engagement photos from a few months ago. It was such a pleasure working with my friends for their amazing day!

620 Jones is such a cool San Francisco spot. They have a great room upstairs for the bridal party to hang out and its right downtown with great energy all around.

We stopped into this cool little wine bar called The Lab by Napology. We relaxed there and had some wine before the ceremony.

Engagement Photos at Golden Gate Park and Baker Beach with Christina and Brian

Christina and Brian are the cutest young couple. They have been sweethearts for a long time already and really wanted to have a San Francisco engagement session. We photographed them in Golden Gate Park near the Music Consourse, Shakespeare’s Garden, and Japanese Tea Garden. Then we also shot at The Palace of Fine Arts and Baker Beach. We had a beautiful day and an even more beautiful couple.

San Francisco Old Mint Wedding Photos with Tiffany & Luke

Last weekend Jim Vetter Photography had the honor and pleasure of photographing the very cool wedding of Tifany & Luke at the Old Mint in San Francisco. The Old Mint, built in 1869, is the actual building where they minted silver coins and made money. This building survived the great earthquake of 1906 and if you ever go inside, you’ll understand why.

This venue was a great fit for the unique personal style of Tiffany and Luke – slightly edgy, slightly industrial and classicaly good looking!
