The Pearl | Venue Showcase | San Francisco Wedding Photographer

This industry sure knows how to throw itself a party! I was thrilled when The Pearl asked me to photograph their inaugural showcase last week. The Pearl is a beautiful new venue in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. It’s been open just under a year and is full of distinctive artwork from artist Alexis Laurent. I love the open space, natural light, and industrial feel. Plus, the whole place really came to life with all of the beautiful details and designs of the participating vendors. See a bit of the event and the venue below, and scroll all the way down for the full list of credits.

The day began with a beautiful luncheon for event designers and wedding planners. Such a beautiful design by 2 The 9s Events with rentals from Bright Event Rentals, cake from A Spoonful of Sugar, and linens from Napa Valley Linens.
