The day finally came… well for this couple it was wedding week! Cherise and Sid finally had their wedding this weekend at Old St. Mary’s Church by the financial district in San Francisco. They flew a bunch of their family and friends from all over for this semi-destination wedding and had a week of visit the bay area. The couple actually rented a whole house over by Alamo Square to stay for the wedding for friends and family and to do their prep there. The place was awesome along with a balcony up top where we did some pictures of the girls there.
Jennifer and Will were married at the Sweden Borgian Church here in San Francisco. Its a small historic church full of many small details in Pacific Heights. It is a rather dark place inside, so wedding photography here is a real challenge. The courtyard outside provides a place for some portrait photography and they also have an area inside for cocktails or a reception.
After the beautiful couple was hitched they proceeded to the reception at the Marines Memorial Hall in downtown San Francisco. The night was celebrated food, friends, family, speeches and dancing! Congrats!
The day actually started for Aaron as he and his groomsmen got prepared at the San Jose Hilton. Aaron had one kick ass suite there and was a great scene for the boys to prep up. As all that was happening, Lisa was getting prepped and done up at the salon thats located on site at Bella Montagna in San Jose. Bella Montagna was the site for both the wedding ceremony and the reception. This was a completely outdoor wedding and with the beautiful weather we had yesterday and the city backdrop it made photography easy and beautiful.
I met with Aaron and Lisa months ago and after meeting them I realized they both had a great sense of humor. Im glad they selected me as their wedding photographer cause I really had a blast working with them.
From, funny moments we all shared to the beautiful sunset and the touching speeches from that night, everything was in line for a fantastic wedding, two of the bridesmaids even performed a song. Thanks and congrats to both of you two. Here are some highlights.
