Philippa recently moved to the Bay Area from New Zealand and married John at gorgeous San Francisco City Hall.
“After many years of a long-distance relationship it was just lovely to finally be getting married and both staying in the same place,” Philippa said.
The weather was a bit unusual the day of their wedding.
“After months of dry weather, we had the first day of rain. I think it’s supposed to be good luck!” she said.
The rain certainly didn’t spoil the day.
“It was perfect. The location was fabulous, we got to be married in the Rotunda,” she said. “It’s just a fabulous setting. Ananda did such a great job with the photos that it looks like we had the place to ourselves.”
After the ceremony, they had dinner with friends and family at Original Joe’s in North Beach.
Philippa said she moved far away from home to start a new life with John because, “He’s a very kind man, very smart and we share the same interests. I feel totally protected with John.”
In the spring, they are off to New York for their honeymoon.
