Elegant and stylish San Francisco Four Seasons Wedding

A foreword from StillNation team

We know it’s been a while since we posted anything. Well, let’s be honest, it’s been really forever since our last post! 2016 has been really busy year, and we concentrated on all kind of business-related matters, and simply didn’t have enough time to get to some other things. But new year new habits, right? Now we will totally concentrate on adding new things to the website. We promise – a lot of new stuff will be coming. And let’s start with this stunning San Francisco Four Seasons Wedding!

The venue

San Francisco has many elegant and luxurious wedding venues to offer, and San Francisco Four Season wedding venue is definitely one of them. Many of our clients choose it specifically for the luxury surroundings it has to offer. But besides the fancy look and atmosphere, San Francisco Four Seasons wedding venue got some other cool features, too. For example, it has an access to the balcony with great view on the city. Plus, it has an easy access to the Jessie Square and Yerba Buena Gardens parks. It happens to be really handy for those couples who desire to get some urban-style wedding shots. Check out this elegant San Francisco Four Seasons wedding of Monica and Andrew to see what we are talking about!


Since the wedding itself was held at San Francisco Four Seasons wedding venue, it’s no wonder that Monica and Andrew chose to have their preparations done at Four Seasons hotel as well. Both bride’s and groom’s teams had really good time doing their preparations. There was a lot of talks, laughter, and emotions. And when Monica put her dress on in the girls’ room, everyone was just in awe! This elegant dress, and the way it fit Monica, is truly stunning! She looked like a real queen. And like a real queen, she even had a crown! 🙂

After amazing all the girls with the beauty of her look, Monica was ready to go out and shock Andrew next.  Blown away was he at the moment the he saw her. These sincere emotions are priceless! Then, after officially meeting each other, the couple and the bridal ready was ready to go out for some group shots. That’s when having the parks near the San Francisco Four Seasons Wedding venue turns out to be really useful – even if the couple is tight on time, they will still be able to get some shots. Plus, if the bride is wearing uncomfortable shoes, she won’t have to suffer for too long. You just walk a short distance and you get to the spot with various urban-style backgrounds. We think such backgrounds reflect the feel of the city wedding very well!

The wedding

When we were done with bridal party photo shoot, we headed back to San Francisco Four Seasons wedding venue to get the official part started. Just look at the fabulous decorations they had at the venue! All the decorations displayed a great taste and attention to details.. And indeed, the amount of flowers and sparkles was uncountable. All thanks to the talented florists and coordinators of FloralArt + Decor.

In addition to the beautiful surroundings, there was a very friendly atmosphere as well. Many toasts, a lot of kind words, warm emotions… All of this created warm and pleasing atmosphere. Also, Monica and Andrew has really entertaining program. There were musicians, singers, and performers. They made the whole evening even more remarkable. And the rest of the crowd was participating in fun part as well! The whole night was filled with dances, and no one wanted to stop!

It was a pleasure to photograph this elegant and stylish San Francisco Four Seasons wedding. Monica and Andrew make a very nice couple and we hope that their love for each other will only strengthen with years.

Gorgeous San Francisco Wedding

Let us share with you one of our gorgeous San Francisco weddings that we really love! The reason why we love it so much is because it combines two San Francisco places with the most delightful architecture – San Francisco City Hall and Palace of Fine Arts.

Rachel & Adrio have decided to unite their hearts in the city of San Francisco, being surrounded by a few of their closest people. Their plan was to have the ceremony being done in San Francisco City Hall, and then take some more Palace of Fine Arts wedding photos. Great choice for people who admire architecture. Plus, we think their outfits fit the backgrounds just perfectly! We still go “wow” every time we look at how beautiful Rachel’s dress looks on the pictures. And you could see that windy weather actually played a good role on that day – the way Rachel’s dress is fluttering in the wind in simply breathtaking! It turned out be truly gorgeous San Francisco wedding photos.

And not only it was a gorgeous San Francisco wedding. It also happened to be a heartwarming one. Rachel’s family actually lives in Indonesia, so they came from Indonesia specifically for the purpose of being present at Rachel & Adrio’s wedding. It’s always great to see people gathering from different parts of the world for the special event of their close people. You could see positive vibes and emotions of these people just because of being there, next to each other. Our hearts fill with pure happiness each time we see that!

It was a pleasure to work with this couple and their family. Rachel & Adrio told us that they were planning to go to Indonesia to celebrate their wedding over there as well. We hope that they had a fabulous celebration, and of course, we wish them a life-long celebration of their happiness together!

Gorgeous San Francisco St. Regis Wedding

StillNation had a blast photographing this San Francisco St. Regis wedding! Sandra and Michael are such a positive and energetic couple! From beginning to the end, their day was filled with tons of action, laughter, and positive emotions. In addition, there was always something going on, and smile just never came off their faces.

Before the actual San Francisco St. Regis wedding ceremony began, the couple desired to have some shots taken with the city view. Luckily, we had a perfect spot for that right across the street, which is called “Yerba Buena Gardens.” Some classic shots here, few walking shots there.. and of course you have to have couple of foolish shots with friends!

As soon as we were done with the photo shoot, we drove to the San Francisco St. Regis wedding site. We were truly amazed by the beauty of Sandra & Michael’s venue. They had a separate room with the stage where the ceremony was conducted, and a banquet hall for all the after-ceremony activities, such as dinner, toasts, and of course, partying. The decorations of a banquet hall looked gorgeous! The amount of flowers was endless, the huge vases were filled with brilliant crystals, and smaller vases contained pretty glowing candles. The whole room was lit with a tender violet light, which made it feel pleasant and cozy. It looked like every detail belonged to its place, the arrangement was simply perfect!

It was a long, but also pleasantly-tiring day. Sandra & Michael probably returned home with no energy left, but still with the huge smiles on their faces. They will definitely have a lot of moments to remember from this day, and StillNation couldn’t have been prouder to be a part of this day and have a privilege to capture those moments for them.

Beautiful and Romantic South Lake Tahoe Wedding

There is one phrase that comes to mind when we think about this South Lake Tahoe Wedding: “Love is like a mountain that is hard to climb, but when you get to the top the view is beautiful.”- Daniel Monroe Tuttle.

Not too long ago our team had a chance to witness and to be a part of an intimate south Lake Tahoe wedding. We we there to capture the moment of becoming a family of two beautiful souls. We have photographed a beautiful south Lake Tahoe wedding of Josh and Deirdre. They decided to unite their lives in one of the most peaceful and majestic places in the world, Lake Tahoe. We arrived to a secluded cabin in Meeks Bay in South Lake Tahoe early in the morning, before the rest of the world woke up. We were greeted by the crisp fresh morning air, and calm waters of the lake, which made us feel peaceful and serene. In places like this you, naturally, feel the power of nature, become a part of something bigger and feel happy. Their South Lake Tahoe wedding ceromony took place in the original historic home of Geo. Edw. Kehlet, built in 1934. The atmosphere in this rustic cottage was so warm and quite, that it made us feel at home. Everything was neatly prepared for the big day, not a detail left without attention. The bride and groom had their wedding ceremony right on the shore in front of the deep blue Lake Tahoe. The light drizzle just brought everybody closer together. After the ceremony everybody had a blast at the reception. There was lots of love, laughter and fun, that the family and the friends shared that day. The evening ended with sweet cake cutting and the couple’s first dance, and lots of warm wishes to the newlyweds from their closest friends and relatives. We enjoyed working with this lovely couple a lot and have many more photo shoots with them as their family grows.
