We first met Jenna & Chris on Halloween night at Mel & Dave’s wedding in Puerto Rico. Jenna was dressed as a 1920’s flapper and Chris pulled off a very convincing  Will Ferrell in the move Elf! It was such fun wedding and led Ben & Eric all the way to San Clemente, California for Jenna & Chris’s wedding at Casa Romantica. Such a beautiful backdrop for the wedding ceremony set looking over the Pacific Ocean. Such a magical night, the sunset was perfectly timed for portraits and the first dances were just in time to catch the evening twilight. As the light faded everyone enjoyed a wonderful dinner set under the stars. They danced the night away in the breezeway looking over the ocean and stars.

It’s amazing that through people we have met over the years, via business, school, & friends we are able to meet people of all cultures, careers, & places. Weynab & Colin are some of those people we were lucky enough to photograph based on a referral from a former classmate Ben had at Texas state 7 years ago (who also happened to be living in San Francisco). Weynab & Colin had their ceremony at the Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church and the reception at the Bridge’s Golf Club in San Ramon. After photographing portraits on the beautiful grounds, exploring via golf cart, they had an action packed reception with tearful speeches, packed dancefloor, & spiced with a few Ethiopian traditions.

We are so fortunate to know so many people all around the world. Carla & Mike are now included among those people. Both from England, they decided to have a destination wedding in Sorrento, Italy for the same reasons we had a destination wedding. For them, Sorrento is just as close as Costa Rica is to us. We met up with them for the first time at the rehearsal dinner two nights before the wedding and began the celebration with their friends & family in a beautiful Italian garden with house made wine. They had their ceremony at the Cloister of St. Francis in downtown Sorrento and the reception just outside of town at Hotel Relais Blu. The ceremony was completed mostly in Italian and translated to English and was a popular tourist attraction for everyone that happened to walk by! We walked the streets of Sorrento before heading to the reception in their tiny rented Italian Fiat. Carla took the back seat to avoid having to hang her beautiful gown out the window! The wedding reception overlooked the island of Capri which at sunset was absolutely breathtaking and ended poolside. We look forward to visiting these two in London next year:)

We first met Mary-Kate & Matt at their Austin engagement session. They both live Houston now but MK grew-up in a town very close to Geneva, NY where they had their wedding. Belhurst Castle was a perfect venue for their destination wedding with beautiful views of the finger lakes. This area is known as the wine country of upper New York so they decided to kick off the festivities with a wine tasting tour. This made the wedding rehearsal all the more interesting than most.:)The weather was absolutely gorgeous on the wedding day and the light could not have been any better! Matt’s grandparents are deaf so they incorporated some sign language into the ceremony. It was all very touching and there were not many dry eyes in the crowd. After the ceremony we took MK & Matt down to the docks for some portraits and then the party got started! The music was so good that even the guy in the full neck brace could not resist busting a move!:)
