Eloping to San Francisco

The preparation for our big day in San Francisco was both thrilling and nerve-wrecking.

Booking of flights, making sure we made all the correct appointments, hiring of photographer, makeup, hair, flowers – the list of to-dos just goes on and on. Looking back now, I’m glad we were lucky enough to have met people who helped us and gave us so much valuable advice.

Eloping with A to San Francisco and getting married in the City Hall is one of the most beautiful thing we’ve ever done together.
