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.

San Francisco Presidio Wedding

Gina and Stephen's Presidio wedding was one of my absolute favorites. It was intimate, romantic, authentic, beautiful, and so much fun. I literally could go on and on about how I am obsessed with every part of this wedding. Like the wild/rustic/elegant florals by Max Gill, or the stunning calligraphy and letterpress work by Little Miss Press, the oyster bar at Presidio Social Club... Rebecca Reategui and her team really knocked this one out of the park. It wasn't just the decor or ambience though; I love the guests who own the dance floor like nothing else matters- which was basically everyone at this wedding. It was a true celebration. Cheers! See a wonderful feature from this Presidio wedding on Snippet and Ink.
