Real Wedding: Erin & Jordan

This week’s Real Wedding features one of our very own Shutterfly employees, Erin and her husband Jordan’s chic and simple San Francisco celebration. The Midwestern couple decided to turn their wedding into a family fun weekend by treating their nearest and dearest to a cocktail hour and dinner party in Fisherman’s Wharf, complete with post-dinner bar crawl through the city.

The adorable couple followed their KISS rule (Keep It Small and Simple) and firmly believed in making their special day just as special for their family. Erin and Jordan said “I Do” on the balcony at City Hall surrounded by their loved ones.

Erin and Jordan’s city hall nuptials were captured by Stephanie Hines, of Shines Photography.

A Gorgeous Winery Wedding from Bella Pictures

Erica and Alan met in high school, but didn’t start dating until after they had graduated. Alan proposed on a romantic trip to Europe at a clifftop hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

They had their gorgeous wedding at Wente Vineyards near San Francisco. “I wanted an outdoor wedding and my husband and I loved the idea of a winery setting,” says Erica. “That area also has a bit of horse country around it, and I’m an equestrian so I was sold!”

When talking about their Bella Pictures photographer, Erica and Alan have only good things to say. “Our photographer did a wonderful job,” they say. “We are still having a hard time narrowing down the pictures we want for our album because so many of them are that good! The photographer was thoughtful, reliable and completely professional. They captured the style we wanted perfectly.”
