Olympic Club San Francisco Wedding – Jessica and Guy – from a top san francisco candid documentary wedding photographer

I felt really privileged to be inside the Olympic Club of San Francisco for Jessica and Guy’s wedding. Even more so I was asked to photograph the wedding as an associate shooter for Jennifer Paschal of Bruce Forrester Photography. Her studio, based in San Francisco, has been around for 30 years and is one of the top studios in the city and the Bay Area.

If you’ve never been to the Olympic Club, you may not know that it has a long and deep history in the city spanning back to the 1800s. It is predominantly a private social club with a heavy focus on amateur sports, specifically golf.

The dinner and reception took place in the City Club House in downtown San Francisco, however the ceremony was held at the immaculate Episcopal Church of Saint Mary the Virgin on Union Street. This church is full of dark and warm wood from top to bottom. Rows and rows of pews for the guests and a cute courtyard to congregate pre and post ceremony. It was here that Jessica and her six bridesmaids and Guy and his ten groomsmen held the most touching nuptials.

Post Ceremony all the guests retreated to the Olympic Club for a spectacular dinner and speeches like I’ve never heard before. A full and elaborate slideshow was presented by Guy’s best man, listing all his great qualities. I was really impressed by how much care was put into it and even how a specially flown in shipment of beer from Nepal was used to celebrate Guy and Jessica. This crew really knew how to make a Guy feel special. The dance moves that the entire wedding party pulled out were fun, wild, and felt almost choreographed. It seemed as though a second dance floor was needed so that there could be enough room to seem some of their extra special dance moves.

Congratulations Jessica and Guy!!
