Mallorca Wedding Meet and Greet Party at Puro Beach

Mallorca anyone? Greta and Waldo had a meet and greet at Purobeach Bar and Restaurant for all their guests who flew in the day before the wedding. This restaurant on the beach has the best views of the night lights and you can hear the water gently splashing against the barrier walls along the patio.

My five year old niece said, “they have good ham”. Yes their Jamón Serrano is super yummy!

Jen saw the love birds sitting near the pool toward the end of the night and I rushed over to get in on the fleeting moment. Nice eye Jen!

Lafayette Park Hotel Wedding

Adam and Katelyn were married at the Lafayette Park Hotel on October 15, 2011. Its nice when the wedding is all in one location; seems like it makes for a more relaxed bride and groom.

Adam’s wing tips were super cool. They went perfectly with Katelyn’s white dress that had a black sash.

Adam and Katelyn had an intimate ceremony and dinner reception; which gave them plenty of time to visit with all their guests.

I love the candy apples! They had enough for my assistant and I to take one home. It tasted so yummy! One of my favorite “favorite” ideas!

And I can’t get enough night time images of the Lafayette Park Hotel courtyard. It makes a great location for bride and groom night shots.

Congratulations to Adam and Katelyn!
Thanks to Jennifer Low for second shooting.

Sausalito Woman’s Club Wedding Photography

Kevin and Sherry put in a lot of long hours preparing for their wedding day. It showed in all the nicely thought out details that decorated the venue. They tied the knot at the Sausalito Woman’s Club on October 1, 2011. They both love to bike and met on a group bike ride. So naturally their wedding bicycle designs were mingled into the decor. Along with my favorite detail an old blue Schwinn tandem bicycle.
I love it when the couple does a first look prior to the wedding ceremony. Having more than half the pictures done prior to the ceremony keeps the guests from waiting too long for the bride and groom’s much anticipated appearance.

They planned their wedding ceremony at the perfect time of day. Just the right amount of shade and fill light for walking down the aisle.
Since Sherry is a still life photographer I wasn’t surprised to find out that this wedding was full of great details. Here are some of my favorites.
This was my first time photographing at the Sausalito Woman’s Club. I can’t wait to photograph there again! They have beautiful views of San Francisco’s skyline.
Thanks to Keith Hornback for Second Shooting!

Paradise Ridge Winery Wedding Photography

Nick and Joanna exchanged vows on August 20, 2011 at Paradise Ridge Winery. This was my first time photographing at this venue so I arrived an hour early to scout out photo locations. They have a beautiful property with a variety of locations to photograph. I’m in love with the old oak on their front entry way. It has perfect filtered light!
Jennifer Low my second shooter for this wedding took two awesome ring shots! So they are both in this post.
There is another great oak tree on the way up the drive in an overflow parking area. It’s a little more private so we drove the bride and groom down after they did their first look.

Here is that second ring shot. Nick and Joanna had these stones with cute sayings in their center pieces and around the head table. Really a neat idea!

Nick and Joanna were referred to me by previous clients Mel and Alisa. Thanks you two! It is always nice to know more than the bride and groom.
After Nick and Joanna ate their meal we snuck out for a few images at dusk. They have a great view of some of the vineyards right outside the reception hall.
Then on to the party! They had a lively group with most everyone hitting the dance floor at some point during the evening.

Radonich Ranch Wedding Photography

Bret and Lindsey were “hitched” at Radonich Ranch on August 6, 2011. Lindsey did a phenomenal job with the details! There were more detail images than I have room for on the blog.

When preparing the blog post I started with 62 favorite images. In an effort to reduce the 62 images I only included two of the ceremony images, to make room for more details.:)Bret and Lindsey ask me not to spend to much time on their posed pictures. I really tried, to keep it brief but they were so vibrant and photogenic. It was difficult to stop taking pictures of them.

They set up the day to be super kid friendly; with tons of activities for kids of all ages to enjoy. Besides the usual entertainment they also included a photo booth, S’mores, bubbles, hula hoops, Italian sodas, Coca Cola and an ice cream bar.

Lindsey changed into a cute, white summer dress and yellow button up sweater just before dinner. Speaking of dinner Marky at Vignette Events is one of my favorite chefs! The food was so delicious!
After dinner we took the bridal party to some old, rusty farm equipment on the ranch. Radonich has many different mini locations that allows for a variety of image settings. Such a fun location to photograph!

Thanks Lindsey and Bret for allowing us to capture your wedding event! All the details were like wedding photographer heaven.
Thanks to Jennifer Low for second shooting and all the other wonderful vendors who took part in this event.
