Celeste and Sergio got hitched yesterday at San Francisco City Hall. As we pulled up in the limo, we found Sergio waiting outside of City Hall, holding the paperwork and looking forward to seeing his bride. While waiting for their number to be called, Celeste had a corndog emergency of which her sister Emily promptly took charge.  With a happy and full stomach and only their immediate families and two witnesses, Celeste and Sergio stood in the rotunda at the top of the stairs and were married. On the way back to their reception site, Sumner House, they had the limo pull over at the Post Office where they placed handfuls of wedding announcements into the waiting mailboxes.  With another tier of guests, they read personal vows to each other.  A delectable Indian dinner was served along with flowing glasses of champagne; the guests kept coming and the dancing began. It was all joy and music and love and food.  This wedding was true reflection of two distinct individuals and their delight at being in love, as you can see below.  Can you tell I fell a little in love with the bouquet?
