Now this is a kiss! If you’re a sucker for the sweetness of ceremony kisses, you’ll love this photo I snapped of Jason and Leah’s ceremony kiss. There is so much love, passion and excitement in this moment.
This couple (who asked their names be withheld) exchanged vows in a beautiful, simple ceremony on Whidbey Island this spring. This month, they hosted a Korean tea ceremony and traditional reception for their family and friends in northern California. Both services were held at the Monte Verde Inn, a gorgeous property in the Sierra foothills owned by a husband and wife team who tackle all aspects of a wedding and reception themselves. For this wedding, the owners provided planning services, catering and the cake — quite the incredible team!
I hope you enjoy these photos, and in case you missed this couple’s Whidbey Island ceremony, check out this blog post.
My good friend and very talented wedding photographer Ann Hamilton was wed at San Francisco City Hall weeks ago and I, along with a troop of other photographers, had the honor of photographing her wedding. We had an incredible time, and the wedding was so beautiful that I couldn’t resist sharing a few more with you.
It didn’t rain on THEIR parade! The Bay area has had the wackiest weather this past year or so, and yet it continues. We had rain on Megan and Sean’s wedding day (rain is a rarity between the months of June and October!) but thankfully the ceremony was at a church and Healdsburg Country Gardens has a barn! Elsa of Elsa Vera Productions was quick to make the decision to hold dinner in the barn rather than the garden and by the time the guests arrived, the barn was set up with gorgeous long tables for the wedding feast! During cocktail hour the weather broke and guests were able to wander the lovely grounds before and after dinner. Everyone had a wonderful time drinking and dancing and eating amazing food! Sometimes it just doesn’t matter what the weather is if you’re got the right place, attitude and crowd!

There are so many ways to make a wedding unique, but how is this for some edible inspiration: Sarah and Joe met at a Seattle bus stop and to commemorate the occasion, their bridal part ordered a replica of that same bus in the shape of a groom’s cake! Little details like this make all the difference.
Here’s the cake, and for more photos from Sarah and Joe’s wedding, check out this blog post.

Who would think you could have a full-on Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony at home? When you have a mother of the bride who is a former film director — and who has great style and determination and a dear friend of the family who is a Greek Orthodox priest — it CAN be done!
Andra contacted me just a few weeks before her Sunday wedding and asked me if I thought I could do some formal portraits as well as photograph an outdoor backyard Greek Orthodox ceremony. With over nine years of experience shooting weddings, I knew I was up for the challenge. My tagline (if you will) is: Classic, beautiful, fresh. Your wedding. Your photography. This means a great deal to me and it should to you, too. Every wedding is different and every bride and groom have their own style. It’s important to find a photographer who can read and match your style. I feel that with my classic training in photography I can handle anything from formal portraits to casual candids and a photojournalistic style. Not everyone wants such formal photography as Andra and her mother did, but if they do, I’ve got them covered!
