Outdoor Art Club Wedding | Mill Valley, CA

Sharon and Andrew were married at the Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley, a charming garden centered building nestled in a quiet town just minutes from bustling San Francisco. Spring flowers were blooming, it was a beautiful sunny day and the wedding couldn’t have been any more beautiful.

Wente Vineyards, Murrieta’s Well Wedding

It is rare for me to have the chance to photograph the weddings of people I have known for years and years. Peggy and Paul’s wedding at the beautiful Murrieta’s Well, a part of the Wente Vineyards Estate was just such a chance.  I’ve known Peggy for a long time, “before Paul” even, and it has been wonderful to see her career develop, for her to come home over holidays from Washington DC, while catching up with the family and more. Together, Peggy and Paul are quiet, kind, respectful with just a touch of sass from Peggy once in a while to keep things interesting. With great families to back them up, I’m sure that the pair will do well as they head out to start their lives together in Detroit.

For the wedding we spent a beautiful warm summer night nestled among the vineyards in this surprising event venue out in the East Bay. It was absolutely stunning, great food and a perfectly put together affair for the smallish wedding of just over 100 people.

Stanford Memorial Church Wedding | Nan + Aaron

Stanford Memorial Church is without a doubt one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Northern California. I had the privilege of joining two kind, dedicated, and simply wonderful people in Nan and Aaron for their wedding ceremony at Stanford, followed by a wedding reception at the University Club of Palo Alto. The cherry blossoms of Spring were in full bloom, making for an absolutely gorgeous setting!

Presidio San Francisco Bridal Shoot

Nan and Aaron wanted some extra photos aside from the wedding ceremony, so we met up in San Francisco’s beautiful Presidio Park to enjoy the little small natural paradise just outside the bustling city center.

Farmstead Restaurant & Stag’s Leap Winery Wedding | Jeff + Emma

Jeff and Emma’s beautiful wine country wedding was the epitome of class, sophistication, and a relaxed good time. Bringing a solid Canadian contingent to Napa, the pair started with a photoshoot and some time on the grounds of the Stag’s Leap Winery private estate nestled in the back roads of Napa. We then drove up to St Helena for the main event at the Farmstead Restaurant at Long Meadow Ranch. Farmstead, as the name implies, specializes in farm-to-table fresh and delicious food, and the wedding fare certainly didn’t disappoint. It was a special evening with open campfires and s’mores crackling late into the night.

Shakespeare Garden Golden Gate Park Wedding | Amanda + Josh

Amanda and Josh were married at the Shakespeare Garden in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. The spring flowers were blooming, it was a beautiful warm day and we got to use some of the amazing museums and monuments around the area for some great photos as well. The day started with a traditional tea ceremony at Josh’s restaurant Saison, then and finished at the Grand Palace Seafood Restaurant in South San Francisco for a traditional Chinese seafood wedding dinner.
