Tucked away in the Sausalito Hills among the Eucalyptus trees is a Colonial Revival complex that is expansive yet embodies a quaint sanctuary space with incredible views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Cavallo Point is a destination for couples near and far that want to escape the city sounds and surround themselves with the natural elements. This one of a kind wedding venue was exactly where Tina & Brian had their hearts set on saying their I do’s before their friends and family.
The wedding ceremony was set on the Mission Blue Lawn with only 50 of their closest people around them to witness. The weather was gorgeous for a beautiful January wedding and the sunset as the two exchange their vows enhancing the romance that was all around them. The couple chose classic colors of whites and green to incorporate in their wedding style. The brides bouquet had all the perfect florals compiled of roses, Lisianthus, ranunculus and eucalyptus greens creating a fresh and classical palate designed by Angella floral design.
The bride wore a stunning gown by Rivini and Brian, the groom, was just an Indochino styled perfectly.
Upon arriving in the bride suite I went to work right away in styling their invitations using loose florals and their rings. The groom seemed super excited yet both of them were calm and easy to work with.
The couple initially met on tinder. They set their first date in a San Francisco coffee shop and within weeks were completely smitten with each other. The two shared a common love for hiking spent 2019 training to do the Tour du Mont Blanc in Europe, which was 6 days of strenuous hiking and planned a vigorous hike through the Alps in France, Italy, and Switzerland. Cavallo Point was a perfect place for these two to tie the knot.
Our favorite plan or Mandy Scott was there to plan everything to perfection and as usual everything went perfectly. For a couples portraits the two shared their first look behind the Cavallo point chapel where the light poured in spiritually creating a harmonious symmetry of highlights and shadows. Then we drove Tina and Brian down to the lower parking lot where sailboats swayed in the harbor and took the couple on a short hike up to where the views stretched over the waters and the Golden Gate Bridge stood proudly behind them as their back drop. There are so many gorgeous views around there that I never grow tired of Cavallo and it still remains one of my favorite places to shoot a wedding.
Wedding reception followed in Verbena A restaurant and terrace. Guests enjoyed a plated dinner followed by speeches, cake cutting and dancing. Tables were beautifully dressed in gorgeous linens by La Tavola Linens. The crowd was thrilled and danced all night closing the venue down!
