Last September Adam and I arrived at this beautiful Victorian houseÂ at Shoreline to share the day and capture the wedding of one of my all time favorite couples in this entire world! I met Shelby at her brothers wedding the previous year, and when we all met for coffee to go over the details of her own wedding, I knew we were all a match made in heaven.Â Â They had a beautiful afternoon garden wedding. Everything was perfect, from the pretty bright colors to the gorgeous hats that the guest wore to Â incorporate themselves with the style of the afternoon wedding. Â I wasÂ honoredÂ to be able to share this special day with the two of them. This is one prettyÂ Rengstorff House ShorelineÂ wedding.
It’s so nice when couples exchange gifts with each other the morning of their wedding and the gifts are things they are able to incorporate into their wedding.
I will never ever ever forget Adam’s speech…. Love, is cheese….that was awesome.Â At the end of the afternoon Shelby and Adam said their fair wells to their family and friends and road away on their favorite bikes.

If your dress is just sitting in your closet taking up space that could be used for some ofÂ thoseÂ awesome dresses you just purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue, whats better then getting one more stunning and over the top fun, fashion forward trash the dress session out of it? That’s what my 2012 Bride Sara did with hers. She called me up and said, “Nicole! I need to get rid of this dress! It’s taking up precious clothing space! Let’s do a trash the dress!” Originally we planned to do something that involved all herÂ favoriteÂ foods, butÂ because we were going to Baker Beach in San Francisco she Â didn’tÂ want the seagull’s thinking it was a free for all chow down fest and attacking her. So we nixed that Idea and decided to use theÂ beautyÂ around us.Â Â As well as Â some awesome colored corn starch. Here is one of the images we got from the set. Talk about a stunner!
Shelby Khan - Most of the time when you look at a photo blog of a wedding you start taking notes about what you do and don’t like. You can’t help it, even if you are already married! The experience is completely different when you are looking at the photo blog of your own wedding.
While you are looking at every detail possible, it isn’t to critique it, it is to love it. You look at the blog and see your love story expertly laid before you through the eyes of everyone else. It is through these photos that you feel the same nervous, excited, joyful and loved mix of emotions that you felt on your wedding day.
I cannot begin to explain the impact that Nicole and Adam had on this outcome. While anyone can take a photo, only they were able to capture the emotion, detail and significance of each moment.
Thank you again Nicole and Adam, you bring us joy every time we look at one of your photos!
