For a year, Lexy and Yates were passing strangers, living just a block from each other in the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. They shared many of the same local haunts without encountering one another until Yates saw her one day in Za Pizza, approached, and asked for her number.
When I met them, the couple shared an apartment in North Beach with impressive views looking southeast towards the Bay Bridge and the city’s iconic, downtown skyline.
So it seemed fitting when they said their vows in the Grand Hall of the Flood Mansion in front of a panoramic vista of the city by the Bay, where their romance began.
The Flood’s floor-to-ceiling bow windows offer a sunset view of some of San Francisco’s most compelling landmarks – the Golden Gate Bridge, the Palace of Fine Arts, Marin County and, of course, the Bay itself. The venue’s gorgeous Italian Renaissance design and Pacific Heights address make it the ideal location for a San Francisco wedding.
Epic Roasthouse, where Lexy and Yates held their rehearsal dinner, sits right on the waterfront just beneath the Bay Bridge, if you’re really eager to show off the city and its culinary reputation to out-of-town guests.
Dream a Little Dream organized this wedding with Betty Zlatchin Catering feeding the guests, Maria Chang of PMA providing make-up and florals by Soul Flowers.
