CHINA CABIN TIBURON WEDDING

This venue was great for this intimate, vintage inspired, casual wedding.  China Cabin is a Victorian saloon venue space that was originally commissioned in 1866 to carry mail and passengers between San Francisco and the Far East. Amber was referred to me by the lovely ladies at Metier, Sheri & Trina are the sweetest people who own & curate one of the best jewelry boutiques in SF. These mamas have mad style. I had the pleasure of collaborating with them a few years back and was already a lifelong fan. They carry the most unique and vintage heirloom jewelry I’ve ever seen & hope to own more of.  Jason is a graphic artist based in Oakland. It’s always nice to get to know the couples I get to work with and find out that we have mutual friends, in this case other than Sheri & Trina, also our friend Matt Leunig another Oakland artist. Amber’s friend did all the flowers, and the palette and style worked so well with the space and Amber and her maid of honor’s vintage style, tho also modern. Her little girl was the flower girl, and I could not get enough photos of her. Love the matching animal print jackets!! If I have a little girl I’m so stealing this.china-cabin-tiburon-wedding_0007

Berkeley City club & Brazillian Room Wedding

One of my favorite places to photograph in the east bay is the Berkeley city club, it’s rich with architectural details and the library is so unique, colorful and glamorous. Jason’s velvet suit jacket & Brandy’s vintage inspired beaded gown complimented the space so beautifully. We did all the photos before the ceremony without the groom seeing his gorgeous bride. I met these two cuties through one of my besties who hired me to do a holiday photo booth for their company holiday party. Company parties can be so much fun, with good cocktails & yummy horderves. I made some fake presents as props in funky handpainted wrapping paper & my personal favorite the candy cane headband. Check out photo booth photos here.  We were lucky enough to catch some magic golden hour light before dinner at a lake near the Brazillian room. Brandy was a glowing goddess with that beautiful light. Can’t wait to go back for my next city club wedding.  berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0001 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0002 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0003 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0004 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0005 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0006  berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0008-2berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0011 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0009 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0010  berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0012 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0013 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0014 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0015 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0016 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0017 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0018  berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0020 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0021 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0022 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0023 berkeley-city-club-brazillian-room-wedding_0024FROMSFWITHLOVE.COM

SF CITY HALL CABLE CAR WEDDING

This was the funnest wedding ever! After their city hall ceremony & portraits, we did a SF tour on a cable car. Everyone got a bit tipsy, and it was a blast. Tho it was challenging to photograph on a moving vehicle, I loved every minute of it. We went to the Golden gate bridge, Palace of Fine arts, Giants stadium, Potrero hill & I got off in Hayes valley where everyone went to dinner.  Not sure who put all the effort into all the great details, from the Just married sign on the cable car, the congratulations banner inside, the bedazzled bride goblets, rainbow and unicorn balloons…things like this do make for a festive environment not to mention great inspiration for the photog. The flower crown & bouts were by Ampersand, they were beautiful! Kim & Erin have such loving friends & family. There was so much love & fun, what else do you need really?

UC BERKELEY BOTANICAL GARDENS WEDDING & REDWOOD GROVE

Being able to do outdoorsy weddings close to home is such a treat. The University of California Berkeley Botanical Gardens & Redwood Grove is gorgeous. And it’s extra meaningful if you went to school there or are an East Bay local. Lia &Rainier are the cutest couple, I thought so when first meeting and photographing them while they were still dating. We shot at Steep Ravine cabins in Marin, the photos turned out so good, see them here. They met while living in a multi-roommate house in SF, how cute is that! Rainier is a pro cyclist & Lia is a black belt in martial arts. It would be fun to see these two athletes take each other down, ha. Lia was a jaw-dropping bride, so elegant. And those colorful heels, so fun. Rainier’s wedding band is custom made with Mt. Rainer joining the Golden gate bride. It’s the coolest men’s band, I’ll include a close up when I finish the whole wedding. I loved being their wedding photographer!
