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!
