Abigail & Vaughn’s Wedding at Fairview Metropolitan Golf Links | Oakland Wedding Photographer
This is the story of a pair of high school sweethearts who finally tied the knot three weeks ago. In Abigail & Vaughn’s own words, here’s the short-and-very-sweet version:
Vaughn and Abigail met in high school. The word “met” is used loosely, because what we really mean is that we both thought the other was very cute, so of course we stayed as far away from each other as possible.
After many years, we reconnected. It began innocently enough by going to the gym together. Thanksgiving 2014 rolled around, and Abigail invited Vaughn over for pie. While Vaughn wasn’t a fan of pie, he was a fan of Abigail, and so he accepted.
The rest, as they say, is history.
John & Lien | Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton Surprise Engagement Proposal
John & Lien came from Texas to visit San Francisco and the Bay Area, and what better place to stay than at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay? This grand hotel is situated on a cliffside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and there is a nice trail with colorful vegetation that runs along the cliff. Beneath it is a sandy beach, perfect for a sunset walk.
After a romantic stroll down the coastal trail, John & Lien walked down to the beach, where they enjoyed the calm waves and the sunset. Upon returning to the cliffside, John showed the ring, popped the question, and she said YES! What a wonderful welcome to the California coast for this lovely couple — congrats you two!
Tammy & Chris | San Ramon The Bridges Golf Club Wedding
Tammy and Chris exchanged their “I do”s at The Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon under a bright and sunny summer sky. For this couple, the most important part of their wedding was the guests, and above all, their family. Tammy carried with her a rosary with her father’s picture and kept it wrapped around her left hand during the ceremony, and she also lit a tribute candle in his memory. Tammy’s brother walked her down the aisle, and later shared a very touching dance with her during the reception. On the other side of the aisle, Chris chose his father to be one of his groomsmen — something I totally think more grooms should do! — and to unite them in marriage, Chris’s uncle, a priest, performed the ceremony.
