Wedding Photographer San Francisco City Hall - Wedding Dress

Wedding Dress at City Hall

A frequent question we are asked revolves around San Francisco City Hall wedding dresses.   Should they be formal or less so.  It is a civil ceremony, so is there a need to dress up that much?  To me, the answer is yes! Its a wedding, one of the main events in a person's life.  So should you wear jeans?  Of course not, but we have had couples wearing jeans.  The reason we most often receive is that it is only a civil ceremony and not a formal affair.  However,  many of the brides who just assume they should dress casual are often surprised when they walk into city hall and see all the fancy white wedding dresses.   In the photo above, our bride went pretty much all the way in this beautiful wedding dress with a formal train.  For this photos we back-lit her to highlight the dress even more.
