Photographer Lori Paladino tells the special story behind having an intimate ceremony at this phenomenal location in the San Francisco, and creating Penthouse magic.
Noelle & Alton opted for a small, intimate approach to their wedding day. Surrounded by just 30 of their closest family and friends, they held an evening ceremony and dinner on Friday night, with the bigger reception and celebration the following evening. They were married at twilight, on the beautiful deck of the Fairmont Hotel penthouse suite, backlit by the gorgeous city lights of San Francisco! A January wedding; the risk of rain and cold weather was high, but these two were blessed by an unseasonably warm day, and their guests enjoyed the lovely view and evening air during their intimate ceremony. Cocktails and dinner were served inside the gorgeous penthouse suite, where the interiors are somehow both timeless yet modern, combined with gorgeous white centerpieces designed by A. Hana, created a sophisticated and elegant setting for their wedding day celebration.
