Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to share true love stories from our community…
We open our series of real wedding snapshots with Lindsey and Brittany, two lovely ladies from San Francisco who got married last spring at the historic City Hall. See what Lindsey had to say about their big day!
Lindsey & Brittany
Tell us your love story. How did you first meet?
We met through a mutual friend at a bar in Arkansas. She felt pretty confident that she knew all of the acronyms of “text-speak,” icyww (in case you were wondering). So I spent the rest of the time calling her out on all the ones she didn’t know.
Where and when was the big day?
Our ceremony was at San Francisco City Hall, with our two best friends as our witnesses on June 29th, 2015.
How did you find the perfect dress?
My quest for the dress was so easy! I knew ModCloth would have the best selection for finding a dress that was not too casual, not too fancy, and classic. (Lindsey was #MarriedinModCloth, and her dress is the Just the Two of Lush Dress in Ivory. Check out our wedding boutique for more bridal styles. )
What was the funniest or most unexpected moment of the day?
The judge that married us kept calling me “Brittany,” and Brittany “Lindsey.” And when we kept correcting him, he finally started laughing and said he needed to stop or else he would pee his pants. He was pretty old…
How did you celebrate afterwards?
We celebrated by going to a hot pot restaurant right after, and then later we went to Rich Table (an esteemed San Francisco dining destination) for dinner. We were served the chef’s exclusive selections, and the hostess greeted us with two flutes of champagne.
What does marriage mean to you?
Marriage means being honest with each other, laughing at each other, and enjoying spending every single day with your best friend.
