From the details to theÂ ceremonyÂ to the amazing and oh so crazy reception this wedding rocked! Juan and Diana got married at the St. Isidore Church in Danville then held their reception at the Bridges golf club in San Ramon. This was the perfect wedding to kick ourÂ seasonÂ into high gear. Congrats Juan and Diana! Â You had such a beautiful day!
These girls are awesome!
I ADORE this photo. It was sunset and we had minutes to get our sunset shots. SoÂ JuanÂ pickedÂ DianaÂ up and started running up the hill to catch the sun before it went down. Just in case you were wondering we made it , without falling =)
So if you were wondering, Hector, their amazing D.J. had a littleÂ challengeÂ for Juan. While blindfolded Juan had to feelÂ variousÂ legs and pick which one was Diana’s. I’m not so sure he was in for the surprise!Â Party rockin in the house tonight…Â
Rina is stunning, sweet, smart and did I say stunning? Â Daniel and Rina had the most gorgeous San Francisco Saint Patrick Church Wedding!Â We started at the Saint Patrick’s church where they held their ceremony then moved to the beautiful Â War Memorial Veterans Building. Â Of course I’m the type of girl who loves to let pictures tell a story. Â 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 Â family members chanted besos!!! Rina and Daniel did not disappoint!What did I say? Stunning right?Â
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. Â
It’s been way too long since I have sat down and worked on a blog post. Â My life has been so incredibly busy these last couple of months and I finally have a week to just relax. Â 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.Â A little while later Maribel Â decided to write the story and Â it is now a published book. Â Now that’s a fairytale come to life. This Â little guy was just running around. He was no bigger then the size of my hand. Â Bunnies are my favorite little animals, hence my pet rabbit Mogwai. =) Â I Â absolutely love this photo of them! Â
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. =)
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.Â Mandy is the owner of The Test of time weddings specializing in designing the perfect weddings for couples. She designed Â 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. Â I also love Mandy and Brook!Â They are a fun couple who had the most heartfelt wedding possible.Â Adam and I were extremely lucky and happy to capture it.
Brook made all of the paper boutonniÃ¨res by hand.Â
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.Â
