A tattooed couple, a chuppah covered in ferns, and an overlook of San Francisco made for a fabulously fun and romantic hipster wedding in San Francisco. The indoor ceremony at Sunnyside Conservative took on a natural motif with shades of green accented by bright pink and red buds. The entire celebration was filled with personality, which expert photographers Helena and Laurent brilliantly captured in every frame.

70s hipster summer camp.
Kate: Despite getting choked up and not being able to deliver the final line of my vows — “I love your face” — Micah nevertheless and unplanned delivered the proper response at the end of his — “You are the best of the human race.”
Micah: There were technical difficulties during our first dance as the song kept skipping. We were unfazed and, as the DJ looped the track around the skips, we looped our dancing to match and got all of our friends to join us for the beginning of what turned into the dance party to end all dance parties.
The Couple Recommends:
All of our wedding professionals stood out: Helena and Laurent captured our aesthetic perfectly (and are just rad folks, to boot). Shannon’s floral designs — especially the chuppah — were out of this world. And our caterers were able to design a menu that honored both our heritages and respected our guests’ diverse dietary preferences. We feel lucky to have worked with such a talented group of people.
