Laura and Nick's Elopement at the Marin Civic Center / by Sonya Yruel

Laura told me that her love story with Nick crossed an ocean. The spark between them began with a mutual love of music and grew when the two met for the first time in London. Laura had flown there to attend the Tattoo Convention. Over time the two have become each others best friends. She says that their love is that kind of fulfilling love that makes each other the best version of themselves.

It was such a joy to spend the afternoon with these two for their elopement! We headed off to the Marin County Civic Center in San Rafael, for their civil ceremony on the terrace. The building is a stunning work of mid-century architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright. As you glide up the escalator, the building seemingly expands before you. The scalloped repeating balconies were beautiful lines to frame the happy couple!

After their wedding, we headed off the beautiful Marin Headlands, for amazing views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate. Then we headed into San Francisco to Fort Point, for views under the bridge. Then the classic Palace of Fine Arts, and last but certainly not least, a favorite neighborhood, North Beach!
