Ali + Kirk: 6.16.18 | A San Francisco Mint Wedding | San Francisco, California

It was a sentiment shared over and over throughout their wedding weekend, whether announced on a microphone during the toasts or whispered quietly as guests watched them from afar: Ali and Kirk were made for each other.  Not just in the fairytale, happily-ever-after way, but in the inside-joke, same-wavelength, best-friend and partner-in-crime type of match.  These two are fun AND funny and constantly cracking each other up with silly antics and hilariously timed one-liners.  But there’s another side to their relationship that emerged on their wedding day: a sweet protection, a shelter, a level of comfort rooted in their bond that shows just how much these two care for each other.  One of my favorite moments of the day occurred during their vows: after Kirk read his personalized words to Ali, in which he included a Hunter S. Thompson quote, Ali began her vows with, “Well, this is gonna get weird…” and shortly thereafter read her very OWN Hunter S. Thompson quote that she included among her promises.   Kirk’s face when he realized the coincidence tells the story better than I ever could, but thank god for the photographic proof, am I right?  The San Francisco Mint stood as the perfect backdrop for this cool CA couple to make things official.  One of the raddest places we’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing, it was pretty magical seeing the combination of the historical venue and the very ‘Ali +Kirk’ details of the day as they came together in a perfect cohesion of classical grandeur and epic personal style.  From Ali’s AAAAH-mazing fashion – including her insane Berta dress (with a removable train!) sky high Louboutins and fluffy reception jacket (also, I would be remiss if I forgot to mention Kirk’s awesome Star Wars socks!) to the lush, yet almost antique floral stylings from Bewilder Floral, to the reception tables in the courtyard featuring pets’ names from throughout their lives, to the after party held downstairs in the “Vault”, complete with dancing on tables: this day was all Ali + Kirk.  The biggest takeaway from their wedding?  Marry your best friend and every day is a party.  Cheers to the newly minted husband and wife! 😉
