A Wedding at Alcatraz Prison?

Escaping the 100 + degree weather at home we have been exploring the Bay area of Northern CA.   We visited Stanford and UC Berkley; went to Muir Woods; went shopping for souvenirs on Pier 39; had New England clam chowder in a famous sourdough bread bowl and my personal favorite–visited Alcatraz!

Alcatraz Prison was once home to the country’s most infamous criminals including Al Capone and the famous Robert Stroud, “Birdman” of Alcatraz.  The solitary confinement cells made me so claustrophobic I couldn’t even go inside. The cell house is dark, dank and filled with death stories!   Yet, outside the walls of the cell block there are beautiful views of the skyline of San Francisco.

To satisfy my curiosity I had to know if any Modern Brides ever wanted to turn the site in her wedding venue.  It came as no surprise to find out the event design goddess Sasha Souza had pulled it off!  She turned Alcatraz into a dressed up private event.  It’s not exactly a Modern Jewish Wedding–but, Sasha proves if you dream it…!  Here are the pics from her website!

Tomorrow’s Real Wedding features a Modern Jewish Wedding that also takes advantage of the beautiful San Francisco view!

    • Erin and Daniel had a beautiful, intimate wedding at the elegant Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Austin. It was a beautiful spring day for a simple, laid back ceremony on the back lawn and a low-key dinner reception followed afterward indoors.
Erin didn’t want the spotlight to be on herself too much; she and Daniel were both keen to spend as much time as possible with their families and friends. Becky with Brock and Co Events did an outstanding job executing a flawless event.
