Mackenzie and Sheehan attached a love lock to the Golden Gate Bridge after the ceremony, as their version of a mixing of the sand or stomping of the glass tradition. After hooking the lock, they threw the key into the water.

Mackenzie and Sheehan, star-crossed lovers from San Diego, decided on a beautiful elopement on the Golden Gate Bridge. After much debate, the couple decided on the nontraditional and personal wedding just for the two of them. After the early morning ceremony, the newlyweds got caught in a rainstorm and ran to a small cafe to warm up and have a romantic breakfast. The couple added personal details like hooking a lock to the bridge to make their day extra special.
