When Erika and Nikolay invited me to document their wedding celebration at San Francisco City Hall, their cheerful, playful personalities didn’t quite prepare me for the emotion of the ceremony. Among an intimate group of family and closest friends, the couple exchanged rings in the City Hall Rotunda. Tears of joy flowed freely, as you’ll see. The San Francisco City Hall wedding ceremony is a short affair; not much pomp and circumstance, just the moment, and the connection between the two people who are making a life commitment to one another. It was a privilege to be present at such a personal and pivotal point in their lives.
