Relaxed Wedding At the Dogpatch Wine Works in San Francisco

When I first spoke with J about her and G’s upcoming wedding at the Dogpatch Wine Works I knew they wanted the wedding to be a fun, relaxed party and they wanted pictures of their friends and family enjoying the day. I didn't realize how much talent and personal artistry that would be incorporated. J’s mom made her beautiful beaded dress, J painted the seating chart (a scene from J and G’s first date) and the held florals/boutonnières where made by a family friend. I always love that I am let into my clients lives to hear stories from their past and how that has shaped them into the people they are. I’m forever inspired and so grateful for this work and for my wonderful clients.

Congratulations and best wishes to J and G!

Pacifica, California Beach Wedding

Pacifica Beach Wedding Begins with a Morning Surf

M and P got married on the shore of Rockaway Beach in Pacifica, CA. The couple included lots of personal details, the invites made with letterpress from the family print shop, the florals created by the bride and her friends, along with family heirlooms the brides grandmother’s purse and broach and the groom’s grandfather’s ring. I loved how personal they made the ceremony with traditions meaningful to them. The guests tossed floral compost from Ampersand - so pretty! The day began with a morning surf followed by the beach ceremony and dinner and dancing at Nick’s. What a memorable weekend, it was so fun to tag along on this adventure. Congrats M and P!
