Surprise Wedding in Golden Gate Park

The most important part about getting married for Jess + Jerry was each other + the people that would be there. Eloping + throwing a big party in Golden Gate Park with their friends was in the plans but they had a few secrets up their sleeve. Their two-day wedding started with eloping in Golden Gate Park on a quiet October Thursday, a quick change of location upon arriving, and a trek up Strawberry Hill for their ceremony with their closest family.

The following Saturday, they had already invited all of their friends out to San Francisco for their Engagement Party. Friends flew in from all over the country, not knowing Jess + Jerry had already eloped. A picnic-style cocktail hour overlooking Stow Lake started the afternoon, then Jess walked into the party in a beautiful white dress. The cat wasn’t out of the bag yet though. Soon they invited everyone to head up the stairs to continue the party! Upon arriving at the top of the hill, a Welcome table announced this was actually their wedding, with cards to write notes for the new Mr. + Mrs.
