I loved capturing Anna & Amir’s San Francisco wedding at the Foreign Cinema.  We started the day at Hotel Vitale along the bay with views of the Bay Bridge, and headed into the Mission District for the ceremony and reception.  A glorious fall day in San Francisco; we couldn’t have asked for better weather or a sweeter group of friends and family to celebrate this marriage.  Here are a few favorites from the day!

When Ursy & Dany first told me about their plans, I knew it would be a lovely and full of love gathering.  They were married earlier in the day at the Napa Courthouse, and then met their families at Chappellet Winery, where they exchanged their own vows, in the gorgeous “treehouse” overlooking Lake Hennessey, surrounded by vineyards, with their beautiful husky in attendance as well.  My face hurt from smiling!  Ursy & Dany put together a box of deliciousness for everyone, which included goodies they had cooked & baked together.  They also included a handwritten thank you note to each attendee.  It was such a thoughtful and loving celebration.  Here are a few favorites!

Ceremony: Napa Courthouse
Vows & Reception: Chappellet Winery

I’m so excited to share one of the gorgeous weddings that Sandra shot as an associate photographer for LPP!  Lydia & Michael’s wedding was at Far Niente in Oakville.  It’s seriously one of the prettiest properties I’ve ever visited!  I loved the bohemian style and beautiful elements of nature and color that were sprinkled throughout their celebration.  Here are just a few favorites from this beautiful, heartfelt wedding.

Sharon & Chris share such a sweet connection.  They planned a beautiful wedding in Tahoe, and even though the rain was unexpected, I loved the dreamy glow and light it brought to the day.  It made the celebration cozy and natural, and felt like a blessing on a very sweet and enduring love.

Here are just a few favorites from the day…
