Gothic punk at a seaside wedding with whales and wine

Elle and Spor live in San Francisco, and decided to get married far north in rural Mendocino county. A gorgeous winery called Pacific Star created an amazing space with a bluff overlooking the Pacific and a 1000-foot drop to the water. Jessamyn Harris photographed the day and shared these details with us.

Check out the gothic style rooted in punk rock and a backdrop made in seaside heaven.

The guests could see whales in the ocean during the ceremony.
Dark Garden in San Francisco created this amazing corseted dress.

The pair wrote their own vows in poetry form.

Personalized match boxes and chocolate bars.

    • I had my wedding dress made by Dark Garden [http://www.darkgarden.com] in SF. They make corsets and gowns all by hand and do amazing work. The great thing about the dress is it's 2 parts, and I will definitely wear at least the corset again. They did spectacular work!

  3. I love how I saw the second picture and I was like "Oh hey, Fort Bragg!" without even reading anything. NorCal ftw! Fort Bragg is just the coolest town.
