I’ve been working on putting together images for a new venture in San Francisco called WedSpring, a concierge-style service that connects engaged couples with some of the area’s best wedding vendors! They have a multimedia wedding resource library and design studio in the city — so if you’re in the neighborhood, you should definitely check it out!
It’s been a lot of fun looking back at some of my favorite images, which you will be able to view at WedSpring when it opens later this month! In the meantime, you can check out some of the upcoming wedding events in our area on their blog!

I was recently introduced to Wedding Paper Divas, and I just love their business model — ordering your invitations online makes things so easy! How pretty is the below floral invitation? I also love that Wedding Paper Divas frequently offers special discounts and promotions to their customers, which you can check out here. Some of their special offers end today, so you’d have to act fast!

Always a thrill when someone in the wedding industry asks me to shoot their wedding! Emilie is the catering director at the Fairmont San Francisco (one of my fave locations!) and she’s getting married! So looking forward to seeing her on her wedding day, but it was fun in the meantime to photograph her Chrissy Field e-session with her sweet fiance! Stay tuned for her wedding pics this summer!

The staff appropriately played the theme music from “The Godfather” when the doors opened to reveal the spectacular barrel room that was the setting for Michele and Ron’s rehearsal dinner at Merryvale Vineyards in St. Helena. Spectacular with the candelabras and king’s table, the New York crowd was dazzled by wine country at it’s best! Catered by neighboring restaurant Tra Vigne, these destination wedding guests were in for a great treat. Michele did a tremendous job “branding” her wedding (it’s what she does for a living). I thought the welcome bags were gorgeous, complete with their own new family “crest” and even a little post mark bearing their initials. Not a detail was missed.
Check back later for Michelle and Ron’s wedding images!

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!
Vendors involved in Megan and Sean’s wedding included:
Location: Healdsburg Country Gardens
Coordinating: Elsa Vera Productions
Catering: Preferred Sonoma
Flowers: Dandelion Floral
Cake: Costeaux French Bakery

Cliff and Vivian are truly two of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and I think it shows in their photos! They had such a good time on their wedding day!
This was my first time shooting at Carmel Valley Ranch and I loved it! There were loads of gorgeous spots to photograph (in fact, it was hard to pick and choose which locations) and the staff was terrific. The food was also really yummy.
Sarah Ward of Sarah Ward Events did a great job of coordinating the day, and I loved Chic Event Rentals and Rose Hip Floral’s simple design ideas. The architecture at Carmel Valley Ranch and the setting kind of speaks for itself!
Location: Carmel Valley Ranch
Coordination: Sarah Ward Events
