A Nautical Yacht Wedding on the San Francisco Bay in San Francisco, California
Mark Agustin-Hanson (35 and a registered nurse) and Tom Agustin-Hanson (26 and a lending club representative) connected through Myspace and eventually started to date. Four years later, the couple was on a sailboat tour of the San Francisco bay. Mark was planning on proposing to Tom on the boat, but since the weather was absolutely awful that day, he waited until that night. Mark gave Tom a box of his favorite chocolates, and under a pink truffle was a note that read, “Will you marry me?” attached to an engagement ring. Since Mark’s initial proposal didn’t go according to plan, the couple decided to try again and have their wedding on a yacht in the San Francisco bay. Tom, Mark and their sixty guests cruised to a spot facing the San Francisco skyline for their ceremony. Tom and Mark both wore navy tuxedos but in different styles, and invited guests to dress in black tie attire. The nautical theme of the wedding was complemented with a navy blue, white and gold color palette. Nautical images, ranging from an octopus to a compass, represented tables where guests were seated at, and everyone was invited to write a handwritten message for the couple and place it in a glass bottle. The aqua blue wedding cake was dotted with white beading, with a black topper depicting the two grooms in tuxedos.
