Charly and Mario had a beautiful modern, Mission wedding. You can tell that they are totally in love with each other, and that their neighborhood holds a special place in their hearts. Mission is a vibrant inner city community with beautiful parks, cute little boutiques and exciting restaurants and bars. It was in one such hot spot where we had their wedding; Wurst. If you’ve never been, Wurst is a Bavarian restaurant and beer hall… AKA uberkitchen and wunderbar, located in the legendary old Franzl’s Gasthaus building on 4th Street in Mission.
Charly and Mario had 14 attendants in their Bridal Party, seven (7) each, many traveling to be present. As you can imagine, there was quite a lot of activity while getting ready in the morning – quite a lot of fun! The ladies began with mimosas in matching floral print jammies.
Once everyone was looking dapper and gorgeous, it was time for a first look photo session. Mario’s expression when he saw his stunning Bride really melts our hearts.
Side note: Along with the professional images that were shared with me (by the Photographer who happens to be a good friend of the Bride!) I also want to show you some behind the scenes shots that I snapped of the decor elements. I think adding them will help round out the full vibe of this event, so please don’t mind the fact that my cell phone snaps aren’t as nice and aren’t edited to match the dark and moody professional ones.
Can you believe this gorgeous ceremony under patio string lights was our Rain Back Up plan?! There was also a much more intimate feeling with loved ones gathered so closely for the ceremony. Even if the Plan A outdoor location would have been beautiful too, they were so happy and we agree that it turned out just beautifully.
While Charly and Mario and their lovely attendants went with their photographer for formals in a nearby park, our team ‘flipped’ the patio from ceremony space to lounge area. We brought in cocktail tables and decorated them with pretty linens, floral arrangements. Then to make the fire pit more cozy and inviting, we added cushions and baskets of warm blankets. (Of course in the hustle and bustle of the moment we didn’t happen to take any #bts photos but hopefully we’re painting you a mental picture.) 😉
Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres inside at the bar, and snapped polaroids with a giant LOVE ball prop and of course wrote well wishes in the guestbook.
Charly and Mario, your wedding was beautiful! Thank you for choosing us. Our team had so much fun executing your modern Mission wedding, and working with Wurst and our amazing group of vendors. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
