San Francisco Jewish Wedding Photography at Temple Emanu-El & Foreign Cinema | Ellen & Gadi

Ellen and Gadi’s wedding plan was both simple and elegant.  They were to get ready at The W Hotel, marry at Temple Emanu-El, and hold their reception at Foreign Cinema.  It was like a best-of-the-best tour of three of San Francisco’s most elegant venues.

Ellen and Gadi included some unique, stunning, personal touches at their wedding.  I loved the huppah and the ketubah particularly.  A friend had laser cut both of them, and the results were spectacular.

This was also a very special wedding to see because not only is Ellen is joining Gadi, she is joining his two children who both adore here.  There’s something extraordinary about watching the enthusiasm of two young people for the woman who brings their father so much joy.  Even though I was an observer looking in at this wedding, I felt so much admiration for them and for Ellen.  Seeing these two young people give speeches, embrace, and dance the night away with their new family member was deeply touching.

I hope you enjoy these photos.

If you loved this wedding, you’ll love this photography from another Foreign Cinema wedding.
