Cupid's Span; District San Francisco, San Francisco, California

Yvonne and Nick chose an iconic San Francisco location for their outdoor wedding ceremony, and it came about completely on a whim!

“We actually wanted to get married at the Sutro Bathhouse ruins, but the weather was against us,” Yvonne said. “It was barely 50 degrees with killer winds when we went for our rehearsal the day before, so we decided to take a chance and move our venue to the Embarcadero, since it’s one of the more likely spots for sunshine in the city. Luckily it worked out! It was pretty much overcast all day, up until our ceremony, then the sun came out just in time.”

Yvonne and Nick were married in front of Cupid’s Span, a 60-foot-tall public sculpture of a bow and arrow built by artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. The sculpture was installed in 2002 in the Rincon Park area just south of the Ferry Building.

Afterward they took their family and friends to District, a San Francisco wine and tapas bar, for dinner, drinks and dancing.

Yvonne and Nick had huge smiles on their faces all day, but Yvonne said her favorite moment of all was seeing Nick for the first time at the ceremony. “All the anxiety built up throughout the day just melted away when I saw my husband-to-be, and I was finally able to be in the moment, and really enjoy our wedding day!”
