Brian and Angie are married! (teaser)

Brian and Angie — Silly, sweet, and oh so in love! Their gorgeous wedding at Palmdale Estates in Fremont was beyond fun. I always love to see friends and family coming together to put on a wedding. Just to name a few of the efforts, the boys all helped hang lanterns and the girls did the floral arrangements. The result was stunning. We are so happy for them!

LOVE this one!

Happy 3rd Anniversary!!

Today Geoff and I celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary! I cannot believe it has already been three years! So much has happened and changed in our lives throughout this time and it still amazes me that this is the life we are living. I’m so thankful for such a wonderful, thoughtful, and supportive husband, business partner, and friend. I always tell brides that it’s true, you don’t feel very different the day after you get married. It takes time to understand what it is to be a spouse. It’s a learning process that never ends and we enjoy every minute of it!

Michael and Kjerstin’s no-mirror wedding

We are super excited to share Michael and Kjerstin’s wedding today! As you may remember from their teaser post, about 6 months before the wedding was to take place, Kjerstin started a project where should would not look at herself in a mirror for one full year. That’s right, not even on her wedding day. You can read about the project on her blog, Well, we weren’t the only ones documenting the wedding as we photographed alongside ABC’s TV cameras. Kjerstin’s no-mirrors project is being featured in an episode 20/20 airing tonight!

Project aside, the wedding day was really a beautiful one. The setting was the gorgeous grounds of Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside, CA.

When the girls arrived to the bridal suite, the bridesmaids hurried to cover all the mirrors in the room.

Kjerstin wore her “something blue” on her cute little toes!

Although she went the entire day without a look at herself, you could tell she felt amazing.

While the girls were getting ready, the boys were upstairs, busy having a good time of their own.

A groomsmen enjoyed the view…

Just love this one of the bridesmaids helping Kjerstin walk to see Michael for the first time.

My favorite faces are always during the first look when the bride and groom get to see each other.

After a quick photo session, it was time to get married!

Talk about a beautiful view.

Right before the ceremony, Kjerstin’s dad still hadn’t quite finished getting ready. He couldn’t figure out how to tie his bow tie! About 8 people tried to help him tie it, but no one succeeded.

So they settled on a regular tie instead!

In lieu of a favor, each of those small manilla envelopes contained a chip, with which the guests were prompted to pick one of three charities that Michael and Kjerstin would make a donation to.

After dinner, Michael and Kjerstin went around the reception and toasted each table. One of the tables toasted them with…an actual piece of toast!

Their first dance was to “I’ll be Your Mirror”.

It was one crazy party!

Congratulations again to Michael and Kjerstin! You don’t need a mirror to see how in love these two were. (Yes, yes, I couldn’t help the cheesy pun.)

Mike and Rachel are married! (teaser)

Dear, wonderful Mike and Rachel…how we have enjoyed getting to know these two over the past several months. They celebrated with friends and family at their low-key Oak Farm wedding with lots of homegrown touches. They both put a ton of work in to creating this beautiful affair, but I’ve got to hand it to Mike, who, when we arrived, was hand-arranging centerpieces from flowers grown in their own garden. Among many other things, he also made the boutonnieres and designed all of their stationery too! More photos to come soon!

We recently had the pleasure of traveling to Ashland, Oregon to photograph the wedding of Lance and Leslee. We hadn’t actually met before the wedding day, but wow, was this a fun-loving couple! We had so much fun getting to know them and capturing their day!
