Nathali and Victor’s Presidio Chapel and Wayfare Tavern San Francisco wedding was a perfect blend of classic and modern. Of young love and old family traditions. Of serious life commitments and laid-back relaxation. At this wedding, you would find a gorgeous lace bridal dress, complimented with sharp tuxedos and pink bridesmaid gowns, all nestled together with family, friends, and beautiful florals in a lovely white chapel. Head to the reception and you’ll be greeted with amazing, hand crafted cocktails, a traditional American & Norwegian wedding cake, the most delicious family style dinner, and some shockingly epic dance moves from the 90+ year old grandpa! This wedding was truly a night to remember.
About the Couple. Nathali and Victor met many years ago, during their time at college in San Luis Obispo. Nathali lived with a few girlfriends nearby one of Vic’s close friends. Vic was visiting his friend one night, when he mentioned there were some cute girls nearby that would be going out to a party. Eagerly the boys headed out to mingle with these lovely ladies. Nathali and Victor hit it off right away with an undeniable attraction together that only grew stronger the more often they saw each other. The pair ended up back in the Bay Area together as a couple. One brisk October night, Victor and Nathali went for a stroll along Lake Merritt in October. The walk itself wasn’t too out of the ordinary, but Nathali could tell that Victor was acting nervous and feeling clammy. Soon she would realize the reason was because Victor was about to ask her to marry him, and was getting so anxious with the ring in his pocket!
To Nathali & Victor: Thank you again so, so much for letting me be a part of your gorgeous wedding day. You two are such a stunning couple and made for a beautiful Bride and Groom! Nathali- I won’t forget how the excitement of the day truly hit you when it was just us three having a little alone time to get some portraits of you two taken. The smile you had on your face really said it all! Hearing you two call each other husband and wife for the first time was so heartwarming. I won’t ever forget it! Victor- the energy you had during this entire day, despite not eating or drinking nearly enough before the day got started was so impressive! The adrenaline of true love really carried you from sunrise to sunset that night. I won’t forget the sweet look on your face when Nathali was coming down the aisle, or how in love you two looked as you shared your first dance. I hope you are both having an amazing time in Hawaii right now. I can’t wait to see your life unfold together and am so excited about your Thailand plans! I’ll be rooting for you two, always and forever.
