San Francisco Verdi Club Wedding: Emily + Marcus

       "I will always be your plus one," Marcus promised, as he stood across from his darling Emily, exchanging vows.  The theme for Emily + Marcus' wedding was inspired by their mutual love for music: Emily is a music writer and they are both avid concert-goers.  If MTV gave an award for the most rock 'n' roll bride and groom, these two would take the cake.  

       Although their wedding was a true VIP experience, it also had all the hallmark details reminiscent of a SF rock concert.  Guests lined up to enter the historic Verdi Club to get their hands stamped with an ink imprint of Iggy Pup (their adorable pooch).  Their program zine detailed the star line-up, and custom concert tickets directed people to their seats. 

       Emily looked stunning as she walked down the aisle, escorted by her loving parents, and when she joined Marcus at the front of the stage, the mood of the room was pure jubilation.  These two are absolutely perfect for each other, even their vows, which were written separately as a surprise, dovetailed together seamlessly.

       After the ceremony, the band played, and the disco ball sprayed its party glitter on the dancers below.  However, this was no ordinary band.  It was a collection of the hippest musicians, friends of Emily + Marcus, selected from bands all over SF, forming a special group just for them.  The band played an incredible set of songs, all hand-picked by Emily + Marcus, giving a once-in-a-lifetime, electrifying performance.  

       We love Emily + Marcus, not only because they are such a creative and talented couple, but also because they are so warm, playful, and caring.  This wedding was truly them, from their awesome tattoo wedding rings to the I-can't-believe-it's-vegan spread for dinner!  They crank up the volume on LOVE!
