My dear, dear friend Kerry and the love of her life Daniel. I could not be at their actual wedding but loved capturing some relaxed moments at their wedding site, the Chinese Pagoda in Golden Gate Park, a few months later. xoxo
I photographed a wedding last night at the Golden Gate Club and it reminded me that I had *this* wedding from last year not up on the blog yet. Too beautiful not to share! Kaitlin and Patrick were dreamy clients. I think Kaitlin bears a strong resemblance to Cameron Diaz and I swear she just radiated and glowed all night. Patrick is British with Irish roots so a few of his relatives arrived wearing fascinators and my eye continually kept turning to them, they were so elegant and beautiful. Other cultural elements included a surprise bagpiper for their ceremony and crackers during the reception. There were so many sweet moments during this wedding but by far my favorite was at the very end of the reception, when members of both immediate families spontaneously surrounded Kaitlin and Patrick in one big giant hug, while dancing to The Beatles. These are the moments to treasure and hang on to for a lifetime.
Thanks for the always amazing coordination by Jane Hammond Events and absolutely gorgeous flowers by Chestnut and Vine, two of my favorite vendors to collaborate with. Thanks also to my right-hand woman, Katherine Emery, for assisting and contributing some of the images below!
One of my favorite weddings from last year was Kyla + David’s very lovely wedding held at a private estate in Napa. Such a perfectly gorgeous summer garden wedding that I was happy to be a part of.

Here’s one of my favorite photos from this wedding of Kyla with her maid of honor.
Carolyn and Sri decided to elope and a few weeks later, it turned into an intimate mini-wedding attended by 20 close friends and family at their friend’s house in Tiburon. We walked out to the open space preserve directly behind their friend’s house to one of the most amazing locations in the Bay Area, with 360 views of the Bay, from the Pacific Ocean to the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge to the Richmond Bridge. As you will see, Sri had a big knee surgery a week before their mini wedding and could not put any weight on his knee, yet he was such a gamer, smiling the whole time and insisting on hobbling out to the fields. We were so lucky to have this beautiful space on one of the most gorgeous nights of the year, warm, sunny and free of fog.
A simple and sweet wedding at The Tavern at Lark Creek! An absolutely lovely venue, the Tavern is set under a grove of redwood trees and strings of lights. Jennifer and Patrick have been engaged for awhile, long enough to have a little girl in the middle of it, and finally made it official last September. Jenn definitely has a lot of spunk and liveliness and I love how she just makes Patrick relax and smile.
