Brandon and Caitlyn's Cavallo Point Wedding

I love when couples have a wedding filled with details that are very personal to them. Brandon and Caitlyn loved the seamless blend of historic San Francisco architecture, stunning outdoor vistas, and natural beauty Cavallo Point offered. It was the perfect backdrop for how they envisioned their wedding. They met in San Francisco while studying at the Conservatory of Music, so it's no surprise that Brandon wrote the music for the ceremony or that they had The Fil Lorenz Orchestra play for the reception. The florals by Chestnut and Vine accented the look of Cavallo Point with the rich reds and berries. We did portraits with Brandon's father's red Porsche by the Golden Gate Bridge. Caitlyn said, "Our wedding day perfectly reflected our tastes as individuals and as a couple. The day was filled with friends and family, and most importantly with love, and we wouldn’t have done a single thing different!"

Thanks to Style Me Pretty for featuring Brandon and Caitlyn's Cavallo Point wedding too.

Mayacama Wedding

I'm thrilled to share some photos from Jenny and Brian's wedding at Mayacama! I loved working with them! Every part of their day was beautiful, but it was during Jenny's dad's speech- when everyone was tearing up, myself included- that I saw a new perspective on weddings from a parent's point of view. You put so much into raising your kids and then you blink, and they are all grown up and you're at their wedding. Seeing them so in love, excited, happy, full of potential, and fulfilled, like an extension of yourself- but fully their own; you're flooded with memories, surrounded by the village that helped make it possible, you raise a glass to toast the newlyweds, beaming with a pride only the other parents fully understand. Thanks Jenny and Brian for letting me be a part of your lives. Check out their video by my friends at Uforia Films - it's epic and captures their story so perfectly.

Head over to Style Me Pretty to see the feature on their Rustic Northern California Wedding too.

Jayme and Slater

I'm so excited to share images from Jayme and Slater's wedding at the Flood Mansion in San Francisco. I knew it was going to be special from the first email I got from Jayme when she mentioned that we have the same last name. It's not exactly a common last name, and at this point, I'm pretty convinced that we are probably cousins of some kind ;) Everything about their wedding was perfect. Starting with Jayme's stunning Carolina Herrera dress, Slater's custom District Homme tux, the venues, their stylish guests, lovely details, and the most epic rip-your-pants-because-you're-dancing-so-hard reception. I loved getting to work with so many other amazing vendors who helped make this wedding what it was. It has also been an honor to see their wedding featured in Brides California Magazine and on Once Wed. Cheers!
