Here is Susan with her mom putting the final touches on her look.
Susan and Brian in front of the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park.
I think this photo may be my favorite - the colors are fantastic. Wedding photography is by Tim Daw, website timdawphotography where you can see his portfolio. I did make a shawl with the remaining kimono silk, lined with ivory silk faille. As it turned out, the weather was a bit chilly that day so she wore the wrap during the outdoor ceremony.
And lastly - there were bicycles! Susan and Brian opted not to cycle themselves, I think that was a good choice, although you can see the vehicle they are riding in appears to have 4 sets of pedals. Some of the guests did arrive in the park on their own bicycles with many in full victorian and steampunk finery.
Can I say it? So San Francisco! I loved creating this dress and getting to know Susan. I wish them joy and happiness for their life together.
