Wedding Story

Fernando & Michael


Modern Family – San Francisco Style

Before Michael proposed to Fernando last autumn, he asked Fernando’s parents and children for permission.

So when – after eleven years together – they finally were able to marry, it was only logical for Michael to take Fernando’s last name. And it was a natural for Fernando’s son and daughter to walk their father down the aisle.

The moment the officiant – their Supervisor, London Breed (who happened to also be Acting Mayor at the time) – asked “who gives Fernando’s hand to Michael” there wasn’t a dry eye left in the crowd. 

While the guests enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvre, the wedding party took advantage of the sunny day for photos around Yerba Buena Center.

After a “costume change” for the grooms, the reception and party on the Yerba Buena Terrace of the St. Regis Hotel lasted well into the night as friends and family celebrated the new family.
