Inspirational Bridal Shoot: City Chic...

From the country to the city and everywhere in between, you can find wedding inspiration right from your location, which is why every big day is unique and beautiful in it's own way. I've always loved the idea of a city wedding; walking downtown through the crowds and busy streets in my dress and trying to catch a cab! If we were to plan it all over again this City Chic Inspirational Bridal Shoot from Amy-Jo Tatum Bridaland photographer Dominic Colacchiowould help push all other ideas aside and win me over with planning a downtown, city wedding!
Romance in San Francisco...

Words from Amy-Jo Tatum...

"Cities have always held a particular fascination and excitement for me, namely San Francisco, which just happens to be my home sweet home. One of the best things about my job is dressing brides for almost every kind of wedding you can imagine, the city chic bride being one of my favorite themes.

"What better way for Natalie and Dave to spend their fifth wedding anniversary than this improvised trek through San Francisco landmarks as bride and groom again? Natalie has been doing editorials for Bride Chicgoing on three years now. Having her hubby Dave pose alongside her was her idea and what a concept it turned out to be. Once we added photographer, Dominic Colacchiointo the mix, the improv and element of surprise began big time. We started our adventure atop the Crocker Galleria Roof Terrace and continued downstairs through the Galleria where the Farmer's Market was in full swing. The stunning bouquet of yellow roses were bought and made up on the spot at a little kiosk called, Abigail's Flowers. After that we all treked two blocks up to the magnificent Yerba Buena Gardens, a park South of Market Street, to take a ride on the Zeum Carousel. I'll always remember this shoot particularly for the carousel ride, the calliope going with Dave and Natalie (and Dom shooting) having the time of their lives . . . .
