I was fortunate enough to photograph the sweet, intimate wedding day of Matt and Marco this October. They began by getting ready at the Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa in Sausalito and then held the ceremony and reception at Matt’s family home in Larkspur.
The rain threatened to make things difficult. However, it relented just in time for the key moments of the day.
Some guests joined via video call…
Heirloom family jewelry hung over their heads as they took their vows…
I’ve had the honor of photographing a lot of weddings on the San Francisco Bay. The view from the Hornblower yachts is unmatched and breathtaking! Last weekend, I photographed the wedding of Fidelis and Scott aboard the Empress Hornblower.
Congratulations, Fidelis & Scott!
That’s a CHEESECAKE wedding cake!! Yum 🙂
Scott is a professional umpire and made sure we got a shot of him and Fidelis in front of Giant’s Stadium.
A beautiful night to be married on the California Hornblower. Shannon and Kaelan almost didn’t make it to the boat in time but jumped out of the Uber and ran down the Embarcadero to take their vows! Congratulations, Newlyweds!!
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!
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!
San Francisco City Hall weddings are always beautiful. The building and the neighborhood have so much to offer visually and are so iconic of San Francisco. For the wedding of Saba and Sia, we photographed in and around city hall and then took them on a wonderful city tour for photos all over town. We went to the Palace of Fine Arts, the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park, and Baker Beach. What a beautiful day with a beautiful couple!
