Oakland Latter-day Saints Temple Wedding | Janice and Richard

 

On August 6th 2011, Adam and I arrived at the Latter-Day Saints Temple in Oakland.  As we waited outside the doors of the temple, we looked around while photographers and other family members were all waiting for the same thing; their bride and groom to exit the doors as a happily married couple. Only a select few are allowed to be inside the actual temple and watch as couples get married. So Adam and I, Janice and Richard’s closest friends and family waited outside with excitement along with the family and friends of 16 other brides-to-be that day.

The temple is astonishing.  It’s huge! As a little girl, my family would drive past the temple on the freeway and I remember always thinking it was a castle. It’s not any smaller now than the way I remembered it. On that day it was still is a castle and Janice was the princess that became Richard’s queen.

 

What a sweet fairytale.

After the portraits at the temple everyone drove to the reception site to watch a ring ceremony be performed for the family and friends that were not able to witness it inside the temple.

San Francisco Saint Patrick Church Wedding | War Memorial Veterans Building | Rina and Daniel

 

Rina is stunning, sweet, smart and did I say stunning?  Daniel and Rina had the most gorgeous San Francisco Saint Patrick Church Wedding!  We started at the Saint Patrick’s church where they held their ceremony then moved to the beautiful  War Memorial Veterans Building.  Of course I’m the type of girl who loves to let pictures tell a story.  So sit back and scroll down to learn more about Rina and Daniels wedding and the beautiful day they had beginning as two people madly in love and ending as two people madly in love and married!!

Rina was blushing as she came in and was greeted by an amazing mariachi band while friends and  family members chanted besos!!! Rina and Daniel did not disappoint!What did I say? Stunning right? 

The War Memorial is right across the street from San Francisco’s city hall. Made for a nice back drop in the court yard.

What a lucky and handsome groom.

Brentwood Wedgewood Golf Club Wedding | Maribel and Israel

It’s been way too long since I have sat down and worked on a blog post.  My life has been so incredibly busy these last couple of months and I finally have a week to just relax.  Relaxing also means not putting on any makeup until the middle of the day but Adam just asked if I want to go shopping in the city and what girl can turn something like that down? Time to bust out the good ol’ makeup box.

Maribel and Israels wedding was so pretty and very sweet. Israel is a Sergeant deployed in Iraq, so to see them together after he has been away so long was touching. I’m thankful to have been here to watch them get married and thankful for my ability to document this important day for them. The bird theme of the wedding represents a special time in Maribel and Israel’s lives together. Israel had gotten really sick and to make him feel better Maribel told him a story about a pair of birds. The birds in the story represented them and their love.  A little while later Maribel  decided to write the story and  it is now a published book.  Now that’s a fairytale come to life. This  little guy was just running around. He was no bigger then the size of my hand.  Bunnies are my favorite little animals, hence my pet rabbit Mogwai. =)   I  absolutely love this photo of them!

Mill Valley Wedding | Stacey and Richard

When booking her wedding, Stacey called me over the phone to talk details. She told me she was having a very small wedding with only close relatives and a few close friends in Mill Valley. She also told me they would be playing Rock Band. If any one could pull off video games at a wedding it was them. =)

San Jose The Ranch House Wedding | Mandy and Brook

The drive to Mandy and Brooks location at the Ranch House in Joseph D. Grant Park, San Jose, was one of the most challenging drives I have encountered as a wedding photographer. Worth every second of it I must add.  Mandy is the owner of The Test of time weddings specializing in designing the perfect weddings for couples. She designed  her own wedding and it was absolutely fabulous! When I arrived I about had a heart attack seeing all the gorgeous details I was about to be able to photograph. I LOVE details, especially vintage details.  I also love Mandy and Brook!  They are a fun couple who had the most heartfelt wedding possible.  Adam and I were extremely lucky and happy to capture it.

Brook made all of the paper boutonnières by hand. 

As soon as Mandy and Brook saw each other they went from crying to laughing and all over again. The ceremony was full of beautiful emotions that made my heart melt

Ok, so I have this thing for chandeliers. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM. I seriously want one in every room of my house. One day…One day…

When I saw the old crate filled with peaches I about died. It was super cute.

I think these two photos are my favorites.
