This July was packed with some of our most memorable weddings ever, and I honestly can’t imagine a better way to finish the month than with a roadtrip for Brooke & Brandon’s Lake Tahoe wedding at The Chateau at Incline Village.
We actually photographed their surprise proposal last year, and we loved the extensive and thoughtful planning that went into making an incredible day extra special. We knew that day that these two were perfect for each other, but it wasn’t until their Lake Tahoe wedding [ read more … ]
Jaimie & David’s wedding at Fairview Napa was a wonderful event full of love, emotion, and fun. We started off with some photos of Jaimie getting ready and her mom helping with the dress [ read more … ]
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 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 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.
