Blake and Mike’s San Francisco trolley wedding
When San Francisco residents Mike and Blake decided to get married, they decided on San Francisco as the perfect location. We love that they chose to incorporate guests into their big day and make them feel welcome by giving guests a trolley tour of the city.
From the photographer, C Wagner Photography & Design: The stylish grooms had both been living in San Francisco for years when they met in July 2012. Mike was starting his last year of residency in psychiatry, and Blake was forging ahead in his career at Enterprise. Each of them was looking to meet someone who could bring out the best in him. On their first date they bonded over good food, talked about their moms, and sang the Spice Girls. Before they knew it, they were in falling in love.
Their San Francisco City Hall ceremony was full of laughter and emotional tears. Their day was shared by their closest family & friends, some of whom were visiting from out of town. And so, to show their guests around their San Francisco city – they hired a trolley car to tour around San Francisco and stop at Golden Gate Park’s Shakespeare’s Garden for a luncheon before taking a break and having their reception at Restaurant Lulu’s.
