Dulce and Cedric were married at San Francisco City Hall following a quick portrait session at Stern Grove. City Hall has their giant Christmas tree at the top of the stairs and it is breathtaking. Such a beautiful place for a December wedding!
Stern Grove is always beautiful with its towering trees and beautiful stonework and walking paths. Its worth checking out for weddings and other events.
We love weddings on the bay! And Hornblower Cruises is the very best way to get married on the bay 🙂 We had the honor of photographing the wedding of Jessica and Josh recently and here are some highlights below. Congratulations, Jess & Josh!
Barbara and Danny had the perfect wedding day at Inn Marin & Suites in Novato California. The weather was ideal. The guests were warm. The bride and groom were gushing with love for each other. Jim Vetter Photography LOVED photographing this wedding.
Casa Real is setup to really cater to vendors as well as wedding couples. This makes it a great place to have your wedding and your vendors will love it too!
This was a BIG wedding day! The girls started before sunrise. We joined them at 7:00am as they were finishing getting ready for the day. By the time we arrived, hair and makeup was already complete and the bride and groom had given gifts to one another and to the bridal party.
We then loaded up in a giant stretch limo (Best Time Limousine) with Daniel at the wheel.
The first limo ride to everyone to the Groom’s house where there was a party going on already and we’d be picking up gifts to take to the Bride’s family at another party – the Tea Ceremony.
At the Tea Ceremony there was a lunch feast and gifts were exchanged with family members.
From the Tea Ceremony we went to the beautiful St. Leo the Great Church in Oakland where Father Joseph led an inspiring service and pronounced Katherine and Huy, Man and Wife!
The reception was held at Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery in Pleasanton. Such a beautiful space for weddings. The indoor shots below were photographed in the bridal suite at Casa Real.
Casa Real on on the Ruby Hill Winery and is surrounded by vineyards. It is a great location for artistic wedding portraits.
One of my favorite things about Casa Real is the Amber Room seen below. A wood burning fireplace and beautiful lighting make it an amazing spot for photographing the bride and groom.
A wedding of this scale can only be possible with a team of top notch professionals. Our team included the following vendors.
Kaitlin and Joel were married on a gorgeous day in Livermore California at Las Positas Vineyards. Las Positas is an awesome spot for small to medium sized weddings. It is surrounded by vineyards and the property is recently renovated and feels very clean and kind of rustic-modern. We love being a Las Positas Vineyards wedding photographer!

Wedding Professionals who made this beautiful wedding possible:
Darren and Steve traveled all the way from Liverpool UK to San Francisco to be married at the famous SF City Hall. We gave them the rockstar treatment with morning Dutch Courage drink at Gangway, the oldest gay bar in SF. We then took them to SF City Hall for a beautiful ceremony and photographs. Then we took them on a tour of San Francisco with photos at all of their favorite landmarks. Such a fun day! Planning by O Frabjous Day Events. Photography by Jim Vetter Photography.
Photographing weddings in northern California is such a privilege. Wedding days like the one we had with Monique and Joe at the Sequoia Retreat Center in Ben Lomond, California really make us appreciate the beauty of where we live and the warmth of our clients and their families. Monique and Joe are especially kind and staggeringly intelligent. It was a pleasure and an honor to share their wedding day with them.
Nature gave us one of the most perfect weather wedding days I can remember. However, it takes more than good weather to put on an amazing wedding. We had a stellar team of wedding professionals who really brought it all together:
Robin and Blair were married on a perfect May day in Felton California at the beautiful Fern River Resort near Santa Cruz. Robin and Blair are good friends of mine and it was a great honor and pleasure to photograph their wedding. They were surrounded by amazing friends, family, and incredible nature in this picturesque setting.
A week ago, Susan and Tom were on the beach in Hawaii, on a pre-honeymoon honeymoon I guess, when Susan noticed a San Francisco City Hall wedding had just posted. She hadn’t yet thought about getting a photographer for their upcoming elopement so she reached out to me immediately. I was available on her wedding day of Tuesday, 4.18.17 and here you go!
