Wedding on the Bay, Y’all

My latest wedding was of a lovely couple from Texas.   All of the guests were visitors to San Francisco and most of them were from out-of-state.  The bride and groom chose an intimate wedding celebration on the Hornblower Yacht, Sunset.   We had all kinds of weather including a bumpy ride, smooth sailing, fog and clear skies.

My bride and groom were camera-shy so I got a few shots of the flowers created by Melana Events.    I liked  the  spring-time tulips as the bride’s bouquet centerpieces.

During the wedding, I learned about a Texan tradition: the groom’s cake.  Apparently, in addition to the traditional couple’s cake, the groom gets his own cake.  This cake is chocolate and is decorated to the groom’s delight.  Our groom loved his motorcycle at home so he chose to bring one along for the ride.

The loving couple and all their friends and relations were super nice and loving.  Hope y’all had a great time on the Hornblower and a fun visit to San Francisco.

  1. Shoey, i had a “groom’s cake” at my wedding; somehow i thought that was pretty standard but it doesn’t sound like it is … was this the first you heard of it?
