Intimate San Francisco City Hall Wedding by Amanda Watson Photography
You remind me so much of life’s simple pleasures and everything effortless and sweet in the world. A good read. Fresh, clean sheets. A quick dip in the sea. A cozy, rainy Sunday morning with a hot cup of coffee and no place to be.
— Beau Taplin

Simple love. The kind that touches the deepest corners of our hearts and fills our souls in ways we can't imagine. The kind of love that brings you comfort and takes away any sense of longing that has lingered in your heart. The kind of love that shakes you to the core and holds you so close to their heart you can hear every beat. Simple love. The very best kind of love. Today's simple love story, so exquisitely captured by Amanda Watson Photography, is the type of love that we so often dream about and long for.    

From photographer Amanda Watson: "Taylor & Chris don't prefer the spotlight and after being in many of their friends weddings, knew they wanted something different for themselves. A quick google search and Taylor instantly fell in love with the classic ambiance and architecture only San Francisco City Hall offers and she knew that was the destination where they would later say their "I do's". The wedding guest list totaled 16 people, and all 16 RSVP'd 'yes' that they would be in attendance! Taylor & Chris decided to take the weekend to give their family a proper 'tour' of San Francisco as for most this was their first trip. They visted the Redwoods, rehearsal dinner in Chinatown, wedding at City Hall, lunch in Haight Ashlbury & dinner on the bay. Surrounded by their immediate families, at the stroke of noon, they declared forever to one another (with Chris' brother officiating after getting ordained online just for this occasion) and followed with a day full of SF food and fanfare. Lunch followed in Haight Ashbury on a perfect summer patio at Sparrow where they cut the most darling two tiered cake. And an afternoon outfit change for Taylor put her in a perfectly chic bridal-inspired number by Club Monaco fit for a private dinner on the bay at Boulette's Larder, it was the perfect day!"
