S.F weddings are so nice. Especially intimate ones, where you get to show your friends and family what you love about this city. This wedding started at the couple’s apartment in the mission, city hall, Fig & Thistle for a cocktail hr, and then The Tradesman for the dinner reception. I personally love both Fig & Thistle and The Tradesman, so it was a treat to be able to photograph a wedding at each of these lovely spaces.
I love it when a S. F wedding also allows us some time on the urban streets. I was able to capture such an eclectic range of things, colors, textures from this little wedding. The flowers & the cake were gorgeous. I’ve never seen a cake quite like this one, it was stunning how well it went with the flowers & fall decor.
Caitlin is a designer at Facebook & a painter. I love the color palette in her paintings. She made their wedding invites, which turned out really well. She used some bicycle wheels in the design. Scott builds bikes, so it’s a really cute theme. I tried to include it a bit too in one of her portraits. Florist: Blair Heagerty
Cake: Jasmine Rae Reception venue: The Tradesman
Theresa & Anupam’s wedding was a mix of their Western and Indian cultures. It was at the Los Altos History Museum, on a super warm sunny day in the peninsula. SF never gets that HOT, so it was a nice change. To keep true to Indian traditions, they had to get approval from the Los Altos City Council to have a horse during the Baraat. And a Baraat they had! The drummers were amazing. If you’ve ever been to a Baraat, you know the drummers give the crowd their energetic beat. And it helps to have good guy friends, who love to dance too.
Anupam road a white mare named Dora with his ring bearer. This old tradition is not only social and fun, it’s also romantic. Dora the horse is with Vintage Carriage Company & she loves people and music. It was a very eventful & festive two days. The Mercury newscame to cover the baraat. An there was even an indian styled tandem bike!
Theresa & Anupam honeymooned in Iceland. It seems to be a popular honeymoon spot this year. Another couple, Sean & Mariah, also honeymooned in Iceland. They rented a camper van and did the Ring Road. It sounds like a quest you go on related to marriage, haha. It’s the main road that runs around the island and connects most of the inhabited parts of the country. Check out Sean’s Iceland photos from their trip, they’re gorgeous!
The bay area is such a small place. I grew up in Belmont, my grandma worked as a secretary in the science department at Stanford. I know and love the rolling hills of 280. But it still felt like such a random coincident when I ran into Theresa & Anupam at their friend Cal’s wedding in woodside, while helping out my catering friend Chef Stephanie. In a few weeks I hope to share a shoot I worked on with Steph at one of my favorite venues.
