The Chuppah symbolizes the home that Mollie and Andrew will build together. Love hangs from it’s eaves like an always welcome houseguest… it has no walls, no barriers, it lacks worldly possessions… it is open to everyone. Home is the people who live there, it lives and breathes and loves, drawing you inside. Home; it is where the heart is.
On an unseasonably warm, still San Francisco day… Mollie and Andrew stood together under the Chuppah with all the people they adore sitting before them. As they began their ceremony, an errant gust of wind threatened to knock the Chuppah over. Everyone rushed to save it, including Dennis, and luckily it never touched the ground. For Mollie and Andrew, nothing could have been more appropriate on their wedding day than seeing that the people who they love will always be there to hold them up when the wind gets too strong.
Their wedding was held at Fort Mason, a former Army base that spreads 1200 acres along the shores of the Marina district and more specifically, at the General’s Residence. This stately, recently renovated house was the perfect setting and created a simple and honest backdrop on which to hang the memories of their perfect day. From the place settings to the vintage glass jars collected over many Sunday mornings, to Andrew’s whiskey tasting experience, and home brewed beer, love and passion were injected into the day with a casual ease.
Mollie and Andrew’s wedding day was the perfect celebration of everything that makes them who they are, both individually and together. For them, it is not only their love for each other, but their love for and from their friends and family that will hold them up throughout their lives together.
