Rachel and Bob were married on 5.18.18 at the Lake Chalet Seafood Bar & Grill on Lake Merritt in Oakland, California. It was a gorgeous spring day on the lake!
Rachel had been a server for the Lake Chalet in Oakland for a year or so when Bobby joined as a sous chef. They exchanged many words across the kitchen expediting line (both good and bad) and a wink and a smile was thrown in once or twice. For the two of them, going to work wasn’t so bad as they had each other for a distraction. Their relationship grew from there, as they quickly became best friends.
Fast forward to five years later, where Rachel dragged Bobby to her hometown of Hudson, OH for Thanksgiving. The day after Thanksgiving, the two of them decided to go for a stroll through the downtown. Unexpectedly, Bob got down on one knee in the gazebo on the green and proposed. Before he could finish his sentence Rachel was already screaming “Yes!” And that is how they got here today.
We began the day at the Marriott Oakland City Center and photographed the girls and the guys getting ready. This group has no shortage of character and it shows in the photographs.
It takes a team to make a wedding day like this. Here is ours…
We had a rockin’ wedding on the bay last weekend with Kumi & Tyler. Seriously, the boat was rocking like crazy and the dance floor was hilarious! That didn’t stop anyone from having a great time though. Kumi and Tyler were couldn’t have been happier.
The wedding was held onboard the Sunset Hornblower Yacht out of Berkeley. The Hornblower crew, their service, and their food is always fantastic!
On this beautiful, crisp April evening, Amor and Stoney were married on board the California Hornblower on San Francisco Bay. We had the honor of photographing their ceremony and sharing a few laughs with them.
The Hornblower yachts have the best views in the bay area!
Analili and Ruben were married on board the California Hornblower Yacht on San Francisco Bay on this beautiful February evening. I love photographing on Hornblower yachts on the bay. It is the best view of any wedding venue in the area!
