White & Gold Ballroom Wedding in California

Allison and Mark’s gold ballroom wedding captured by Clane Gessel Photography was a glamorous celebration that took place inside the Alexandra’s Room of The Westin St. Francis in San Francisco, California. With a black tie affair in mind, Allison had her bridesmaids and groomsmen dress the part in solid black dresses and tuxes. To offer some contrast to the setting through decor, creams and golds were added in the florals, linens, candelabras and seating. Did we mention the entire reception was decorated with candles? Everywhere you looked there were candles. The traditional Jewish celebration included hamantaschen favours, a klezmer band and a beautiful chuppah for the ceremony.
