Mia and Ben contacted me last month about shooting their little San Francisco City Hall wedding.  Last minute wedding planning …. no problem.  These two fun, outdoorsy, creative people were easy going and blast to work with.  When we exited City Hall we were approached by a man from Greece who told us he could give us a deal on a vacation there.  Oh, how I love you San Francisco.  After City Hall we went to Mia’s parents house for a waffle brunch, toasts, and good conversation.

The Brazilian Room, or as I like to call it The Brazil Room, is funny venue.  Their fees are quite reasonable, it is beautifully placed in Tilden Park, it is close to cool other places, and is picturesque itself.  It is spitting distance from the Regional Parks Botanical Gardens (no fee to enter), the Redwood Valley Railway steam trains, epic views of the Bay on Grizzly Peak, and so much more.  The funny thing about this venue is that they pack in a lot of weddings.  Typically they will do 2 weddings a day on Saturdays, which means that your wedding will be first thing in the morning, or that you will be setting up for your evening wedding as the morning wedding is just leaving.  You can opt to book the whole day, but is seems that most people choose to just book one of the 7 hour slots.  The quick turn around also means that you pretty much have to use a caterer from their short list of approved people.  Over the years, I have shot at the Brazil Room a couple times, but in 2016 I was fortunate enough to photograph 5 weddings there.  I have decided to do a mash up and show a few highlights from these weddings in one post.
