The Log Cabin in the Presidio Park, San Francisco offered stunning views of the Presidio for Christine and Hasan's wedding day! I was privileged to be part of the proceedings as an associate shooter with Erin Beach.
You may be forgiven for missing this hidden gem! And what a gem! The Log Cabin is located on the western shore of the Presidio Park. Built in 1937, it was originally a non-commissioned officers' club. It's now repurposed to support weddings, receptions and all other joyous occasions. I was wowed by the stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge!!! It's just a short walk from the Cabin and it provided a grand backdrop for Christine and Hasan's day!
The ceremony was held on the large lawn in front of the Cabin - a wide, visually appealing expanse. Christine and Hasan had met at college in France. Hasan's birthplace is Turkey and Christine's is the US and the wedding guests had travelled here from all corners of the world. Love has no boundaries or borders and this couple proved it!!!
After the ceremony the guests retired back to the Log Cabin for the speeches. I was so impressed by the layout and intimacy of the space. The cabin walls gave a rustic charm and were complemented by the floral arrangements. The speeches were delivered with grace and love, with a fair few jokes thrown in there too!!! There was also an interesting twist to the wedding cake. Rather than sticking with tradition, the couple opted for a cake made from cheese! In almost a blink of an eye it was time for the first dance. It never ceases to amaze me how much fun can be had on the dance floor at a wedding! The men performed a traditional Turkish dance - both young and old coming together to celebrate the union of two very special people! I even joined in at the end from behind the camera, the energy was so infectious!
Congratulations Christine and Hasan!!
