Nelli & Kevin brought together friends and family to celebrate their classically beautiful wedding day in San Francisco at the Ritz Carlton.  We took the full wedding party out for a few photos in some iconic San Francisco spaces, capturing images at the Palace of Fine Arts, and some under the Golden Gate Bridge.  My absolute favorites were of Nelli & Kevin in the Presidio, with some perfect light shining through the trees.  As we headed back to the Ritz Carlton San Francisco for their ceremony, we were greeted by an incredible display of orchids and roses all throughout the ceremony and reception spaces.  The floral design elements in their wedding were stunning.  Here are just a few favorites from the day!

I’m so thrilled to see Joanna & Stephen’s gorgeous wedding featured here on Style Me Pretty!

Joanna & Stephen met in London,  live in Hong Kong, regularly travel to explore far off places, and as their family and friends were going to be traveling in from all over the world, they decided to plan a destination wedding in San Francisco!   I loved the locations they selected (the Fairmont Penthouse for their welcome event, St. Patricks for their wedding ceremony and the Asian Art Museum for their reception).  It was an honor to photograph their beautiful wedding events, to be able to capture their sweet story in such amazing spaces throughout San Francisco, and to work with such an immensely talented group of professionals.

    Melissa Mitchell - Very refined and neat wedding. Great shots everywhere!

I was so very flattered when Lindsey approached me about photographing her wedding day.  Not only is she one of the sweetest people to work with, she’s also the founder and owner of L’Relyea Events, an incredible wedding planning and design team.  She’s a woman with endless style and grace, and I knew her wedding day would be stunning.  Working with she and Brandon was a dream, and capturing their love was so inspiring!  Here are just a few favorites, from the day, or check out their gorgeous feature on Style Me Pretty!
