We are Travis and Tina. We're planning our low-key urban wedding. These are our tales as we coordinate our celebration.

The Ultimate Wedding Bike Ride

Our dear friend, Eugene Kim, graciously offered to shoot our wedding bike ride from the bike for us! What a treat. His photos came out great and it was super special to see him since he came up from his new home in Los Angeles for the occasion. Thank you so much, Eugene.

Travis and I got appropriately dressed for the ride -- Travis sported a tuxedo jersey and I wore a customized white jersey with lace and helmet veil. It was a hoot to celebrate with our cycling friends, family (my sister and dad rode on rented bikes which was just plain awesome) and even the strangers along the way who got excited by the idea of it all!

And here, in a photo story, was the ride. From Golden Gate Bridge to the tip top peak of Mt. Tam and home.

Thanks, Gregster!

Heck Yeah

Julian flew up from Comic Con in San Diego just for our ride -- and flew back down the next day for the rest of the convention. What a guy!

And this about sums up how truly great the morning ride was:

A Real Couple -- A Fake Wedding Shoot

Hey remember that faux wedding photo shoot we participated in back in April?

Well, the photos are out. We stepped outside our comfort zone to help out a local women's based wedding collective, Locally Grown Weddings, focused on sustainable all things wedding in the Bay Area. They are updating their site and wanted some real couples to pose for photo shoots.

We spent a sunny Sunday in April getting dressed up and shooting photos around our neighborhood. We'll admit -- is was awkward. But we're glad we stepped up to the adventure.

The photos are now on the collective's website.

And they were also picked up by a wedding blog. How funny!

More real photos from our wedding weekend to come...

Wedding Day Dinner

After we got married at San Francisco City Hall and took photos at the Golden Gate Bridge, we took our families to our favorite pizza place, Pauline's Pizza.

Not only did we have dinner at Pauline's after our first date (and closed the place down), but we visit so often, we have a favorite table and especially favorite servers. We rented out a room for our dinner so we had a fun, cozy atmosphere to chat with family during dinner and host the awesome slide show our moms coordinated and put together.

Such a fun evening of delicious food (signature pizzas and butterscotch pudding!) to close out one of the most memorable days of our life.

Here are some of our favorite photos from the dinner. Photo credit to Pamela Palma.

Photo Time

Hey -- we're back! It's been weeks and we've got a lot more to share from our Big Day and honeymoon.

Where were we? Oh yeah -- after we got hitched at City Hall, our families joined us on a shuttle bus and we headed to one of our favorite San Francisco spots -- and an iconic one at that -- the Golden Gate Bridge for some photos.

We've biked over the Golden Gate Bridge hundreds of times. It's the gateway to some of our favorite times spent together on our bikes so it was fitting to incorporate it into our truly San Francisco Big Day.

In typical San Francisco summer style, there was some fog and it was a bit chilly. We cuddled together for some quick photos as our family bundled up inside the Warming Hut (until it closed). It was fun to get some photos and share the views with our loved ones from out of town.

Here are a few of our favorite shots (photo credit to Pamela Palma unless otherwise noted):
