Chanslor Ranch Barn Wedding
Anna + Eric Part II

Here’s part two of Anna and Eric’s rustic barn wedding at Chanslor Ranch in Bodega Bay. Anna and Eric put so much of themselves into the day from the table settings to to the DYI photobooth Eric built.

I love how each culture has different wedding traditions. Anna grew up in Russia so at the reception her parents greeted the couple a loaf of karavay (a small round loaf of bread). With their hands behind they’re back, Anna and Eric took a bite from the loaf each one of them attempting to take a larger bite then the other. Whomever takes the bigger bite is the considered the head of the family. After much deliberation, her nephew announced they both took equal size bits, making them both head of household.

San Francisco Argonaut Hotel
Art Deco Wedding

Suzie and Matt’s Art Deco inspired wedding at the Argonaut Hotel in San Francisco was just smashing. It was such a sweet and touching day from groom’s gift, to the vows they recited to one another, to the joy everyone felt for these two tying the knot. I feel fortunate to have been a part of their special day.wedding ringswedding invitationwedding jewlerywedding suitewedding invitationsbrideletter to bridewedding shoesArgonaut Hotel weddingsbridal prepbridesmaids toastwedding makeupwedding dressbridesmaidbridal prepring bearerflower girlflower girlsflower girl hi-fiveArgonaut Hotel wedding cannerybeautiful bridecannery wedding Argonaut Hotelfirst kissfirst kissjust marriedbride and groomArgonaut Hotel Wedding pictureswedding shoesfirst dancewedding speechwedding speechwedding dance

COWLES CONSERVATORY WEDDING
PART II

We lucked out at the Cowles Conservatory for Marcello and Nicky’s wedding. The impending rain threatened to pour down but instead we got a cool summer day, that is for July in Minneapolis. The couple meet in Connecticut while in school and have since moved to Scotland but bride grew up in Minneapolis, so the wedding was agreed to be held there. Much of the planning was done remotely but it all came together with Nicky and Marcello’s creative touch. One of my favorite moments from the day was the couple’s unique wedding vows, these were recited while making a splatter paining. You can check out the first part of the Cowles Conservatory wedding here.
