Teresa & Michael {Engaged}

Teresa and Michael met in fencing class. That's one I hadn't heard before! What a fantastic start to the obvious fun and adventurous relationship they have! I pretty much didn't stop laughing the entire time. I can't wait for their vintage inspired wedding at the Vine Hill House in May.

Kim & Gareth {Engaged}

Kim & Gareth are getting married next month at the gorgeous Villa Montavlo. Cultures will mix at this wedding as Gareth is from Ireland and Kim is Vietnamese. It's been great hearing how they're bringing elements of both of their cultures into the celebration. I can't wait for the big day!

My first wedding of 2010! {Elise & David}

What a great way to start off the 2010 wedding season! Elise & David are two of the sweetest, most kind hearted people in the world. Their overall love of life made them such a joy to be around!

Being huge readers, we took most of their portraits in Bell Bookstore off of University Ave in Palo Alto. The owners were so kind to let us in after hours to get these portraits.

Both Elise's parents and grandparents were married in this church. I love the candle light!

A friend of theirs had an old restored Model T. The perfect wedding day transportation and very cool for some photos!
