Jireh and Craig - Crowne Plaza Hotel

Jireh and Craig were married in a lovely morning wedding. The day's timeline was a little bit different than normal. We did all the portraits after the reception. It was great since it gave us so much time to play! It made me nervous though that Jireh might spill something on her dress before then but luckily she looked just as stunning as she had at the beginning of the day. What a wonderful day to be a part of!

How great was this wall in the hotel. They looked at me like I was crazy when I said "can you step behind the glass?" But it ended up being my favorite shot of the day!

Sandy and Jerry - Mark Hopkins

Sandy and Jerry were married in a sweet ceremony of just the two of them at the Mark Hopkins Suite. It was so wonderful to see these two amazing people share their vows and commitment to each other overlooking San Francisco. Being from Nashville and planning the day from afar they enlisted the help of the wonderful Elisheva Basseri with A Bride's Best Friend Wedding Consulting to coordinate their wedding. Congratulations to Sandy and Jerry!

Sarah and John - Thomas Fogarty Winery

This wedding has been one of my favorites so far. Not only did I get to work with one of the sweetest couples, I had the pleasure of working with some of my favorite wedding vendors. Amy Paris of Paris Designs coordinated and designed the event. Stunning! Ingela of Ingela Floral Design did all the florals. Gorgeous! And the event was at one of my all time favorite locations, Thomas Fogarty Winery. Fabulous! Adrian with Sound in Motion was the mc and rocked the party. I'm awed by their talent and wonderful work.

Sarah and John had a lovely day wedding on what couldn't have been a better morning. I heard the rehearsal had met with some fierce wind so we were all glad that the wedding day was calm and sunny. Sarah and John opted to see each other before the ceremony allowing us to get all the family and wedding party photos done prior. This left us time to capture some photos of the two of them after and get them right into the reception. Congrats to both of you!!

Becki & Craig - Harvest Inn

Wow! That's the first word that pops into my head when thinking about Becki and Craig's wedding. Everything about their wedding day was perfect! I had the pleasure of working at The Harvest Inn in Napa for the first time and I was blown away at how gorgeous it was. Every time I turned around there was a new and wonderful place to photograph. It didn't hurt that Becki looked radiant in all her wedding day finery, including an Amy Kuschel gown. Kelly of Jigsaw Events was the wonderful coordinator and Katie with Ambience Florals created the fabulous floral decor.

Becki and Craig opted to see each other before the ceremony which is something I highly recommend. Contact me if you would like to know some of the benefits of doing this.

Becki had seen something like this in a magazine. They set up a backdrop during cocktail hour where we were able to photograph them and their guests.

The cake topper was hand made and is an exact (sort of) replica of Becki and Craig themselves down to the sash on Becki's dress and Craig's boutonniere. Complete with a golf digest mini mag and their dog.
