Anh & Andrew's Wedding: Swedenborgian Church, San Francisco, CA

Anh & Andrew were married in an intimate ceremony at the most quaint craftsman-style church in San Francisco. The Swedenborgian Church sits on a corner in the Pacific Heights neighborhood behind brick and stucco walls and wrought iron gates.  The inside of the church is warm with rich wood tones and a crackling fireplace. Andrew & Anh made the perfect choice for their intimate affair at this lovely venue.

Isn't she stunning?!

After the ceremony, Anh and Andrew wanted to do portraits at the nearby Palace of Fine Arts, and then we stopped by Crissy Field to get a few shots in the blustery San Francisco summer. Due to the chill factor and the loved ones waiting back at the church to begin the reception, we only did a few quick shots at each location. 

There is no denying the connection between these two. 

On the way back to the church, we stopped at these steps overlooking the Presidio and the Bay. In true San Francisco form, there was a velvety blanket of white covering much of the area, but it made such a soft backdrop for this sweet couple. 

There was no resisting getting some ring shots in the garden back at the church. 

And the house on the grounds was the perfect location to get warmed back up as the couple shared their first dance as a married couple, and they smiled the night away with their closest family and friends toasting the new adventures to come in their lives together. 

Cheers to Anh and Andrew and all the joy and adventure to come!

Alison & Evan's Wedding: Ravenswood Historic Site, Livermore, CA

Alison and Evan were married on a warm summer day surrounded by friends and family. Their rustic country theme fit in perfectly with the Ravenswood Historical Site where they shared their vows in a ceremony officiated by Evan's father. 

Alison looked stunning in her lace and pearls. And Evan, really pulled of the suit and cowboy boots, and I never even heard him complain about the heat! And trust me, I know he was feeling it. But he was ever the gentleman and kept his cool and made sure that his new wife was comfortable and content. 

Lots of sweet treats were included in the festivities, including guest favors of jars of honey to commemorate Alison and Evan's song, Blake Shelton's Honey Bee. And the sweetheart cake and guest cupcakes were the perfect way to round out the day.

We were honored to be part of Alison and Evan's special day and we wish them the best!
