Michaela and Aaron | Fairmont Penthouse, San Francisco

This past August, I had the pleasure to be a part of a truly magical wedding ceremony in the lavish Fairmont Penthouse suite in San Francisco. Michaela and Aaron envisioned a simple and intimate wedding with their closest friends and family. Simplicity has never been more beautiful. The 6,000 square foot penthouse served as the perfect setting to allow the 40-person guest list experience the couple’s electric love first hand.

Guests were greeted at the door with Michaela and Aaron’s favorite rosé champagne. The ceremony was held on the expansive terrace overlooking the stunning city skyline, with a string quartet adding to the naturally beautiful ambience.  After a lot of tears and a couple “I dos”, the library opened up as an open bar for a 2 hour cocktail hour.  Guests roamed between the Ballard room to shoot some pool, the library to get any drink they so desire, or mingle on the lovely terrace. Once the dinner bell rang, guests were invited to join the couple in to the romantic dining room for a wonderful three-course meal along with live piano in the background. The night was rounded off with dancing and mouth-watering desserts, even some late night snacks.

As beautiful as every last detail of the wedding was, it was unmatched by the intangibles Aaron and Michaela brought to the night. Their genuine love for one another filled the atmosphere. Everyone who caught even a glimpse of the newly weds automatically fell in love with the couple. I am very honored that I had the opportunity to compliment their organic love with details.

 Love,
Bethaina
