Miranda and Matt’s Wedding

Remember Miranda and Matt?

Their wedding took place in November at the beautiful Sova Gardens, a hidden gem in Sonoma.

This is one of those weddings full of vibrant colors: from the decor of the venue, to the morning attire, everything shined.

Miranda’s bridesmaids helped out and made everything fun.

Alison and Justin’s Wedding

I loved Park Winters the moment I first saw it and couldn’t imagine a better place for Alison and Justin’s Wedding. The Locally Grown Weddings team transformed the property into a magical and romantic place to gather with friends and family.

Getting married in October has its advantages, such as beautiful light, gorgeous weather and giant pumpkins!

Alison has amazing eyes: I have never seen the like.

Do you remember Alison and Justin’s engagement photos? They chose this one image for their gift table.

Madeline designed this beautiful map of the premises.

Every time I have been to Park Winters, I have seen wild turkeys!

Pei-Yee worked closely with Alison to choose an alternative to the traditional wedding cake. A dessert table is always a great option.

Felix Baumgartner’s Historic Jump

Want to see more photos of the jump? Take a look at the Red Bull Stratos Mission Control location page, the @redbullstratos, @redbull, @joergmitter, and @limeximages accounts, as well as the hashtags #felixbaumgartner and #stratos

Earlier today, Felix Baumgartner took a stratospheric balloon flight to 127,000 feet (37,000 meters) and then, he jumped. The freefall jump was an attempt to become the first man to break the speed of sound (690 miles or 1,110 kilometers per hour). It lasted 4 minutes and 22 seconds and according to indicators provided by the @redbullstratos team, Baumgartner surpassed Mach 1. His jump came exactly 65 years to the day after Chuck Yeager became the first man to break the sound barrier in an airplane.

Marines’ Memorial Hotel: Eric and Lisa’s Wedding

I met Lisa and Eric almost a year ago and still remember how we sat and sipped tea while talking about all they were planning for their wedding. Time flies!

Lisa had lots of idea for the photos: she knew from the start that she wanted to take photos around San Francisco, including the hearts downtown and the cable cars. She also wanted some photos in a beautiful natural setting. So we collaborated closely in creating a timeline and itinerary that would give us enough time to reach all our destinations

For Eric and Lisa’s First Look, we went to the Presidio. We had scouted a place before that was easy to get to, but secluded enough for this truly special moment.

The wedding ceremony took place at saint John Episcopal Church.

For a few moments we even got some rain! Enough to shower bride and groom with good luck.

Then off to downtown, where Lisa, Eric and I had chosen a few gritty spots for fun wedding party and couple’s photos.

The day went smoothly and we were back ahead of schedule, so Lisa and Eric could enjoy the reception with family and friends at the Marines’ Memorial Hotel.

Congratulations, Eric and Lisa!

Don’t go robbing banks - Do find your partner in crime!

I’m going to come right out with some honesty right now. I can be a stubborn one. I can be especially stubborn when I see something being done wrong that I know can be done better. Imagine my almost constant state of stubborn in…

Jen and Dmitri’s Wedding at the Presidio

Here are some of my favorite photos from Jen and Dmitri’s June Wedding at the Presidio Inn and Log Cabin. If you haven’t checked out their engagement photos yet, take a peek here and here and here.

The Inn at the Presidio is still fairly new and a beautiful venue to get ready for your wedding.

For their First Look, we used the front porch, which has beautiful light and great rocking chairs.

And then we walked down the street for some photos with the entire wedding party. We lucked out on the weather: sunny, beautiful days in June can be a rarity in San Francisco!

The Presidio Log Cabin is on a hill overlooking the city. The ceremony took place outdoors.

In the afternoon and evening, the light was just perfect.

Inside the Locally Grown Weddings team had transformed the Log Cabin for a stunning reception.

One of Jen and Dmitri’s priorities was to have beautiful photographs of their wedding day, so we took some time to make sure to capture the two of them around sunset time.

Congratulations, Jen and Dmitri!
