Erinn & Ben – San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographer

I was SO excited to be a part of Erinn and Ben’s San Francisco City Hall wedding the other week. I’ve known Erinn since I was nine years old and so getting to be a part of such a special day in her life was exciting and such a big honor. I am so excited to share a selection of their photos with you today.

One of my favorite parts of San Francisco City Hall weddings is getting to see everybody arriving, getting excited, saying hello and giving hugs. Lots of hugs and plenty of big smiles all around. This was made especially exciting by the fact that Erinn and Ben actually live in Germany full time and this was the first time they had been back to the USA in about a year and a half – and the first time that each of them had met the others’ family!Erinn and Ben's San Francisco City Hall Wedding / San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographer / SimoneAnne.com Erinn and Ben's San Francisco City Hall Wedding / San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographer / SimoneAnne.com

Next was the waiting. Erinn and Ben got all checked in and ready for their ceremony. There’s always so much going on City Hall and the corridor where you wait yields some sweet photos. Erinn and Ben's San Francisco City Hall Wedding / San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographer / SimoneAnne.comErinn and Ben's San Francisco City Hall Wedding / San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographer / SimoneAnne.comErinn and Ben's San Francisco City Hall Wedding / San Francisco City Hall Wedding Photographer / SimoneAnne.comLove this one.

Next I asked Erinn and Ben to head to the other side of the building so I could get some stunning photos of the whole building. I’m obsessed with how beautifully these turned out! Wowow.
