St. Vincent School for Boys Wedding in San Rafael // James & Brynna

St. Vincent School for Boys is one of those venues where you walk up & it takes your breath away. It is placed on one of the most gorgeous, sprawling grounds, surrounded by eucalyptus groves & beautiful Italian-looking pathways & stonework. Chad & I had actually just returned from Italy before this wedding (a trip we took celebrating our 5 year anniversary!) It was wonderful to be reminded of the architecture & masonry that we fell in love with while we were abroad. St. Vincent's also has one of the most beautiful Catholic churches in the East Bay...high, beamed ceilings & incredible, stained glass windows surround you when you enter the church. It's impossible to not be affected by the immediate reverence that washes over you. It's a very special place & we get really excited whenever we get the chance to shoot there! 

James & Brynna are such a sweet couple. We loved being a part of their day from beginning to end. They have a beautiful love story that's been built over many years & such a great community of friends & family that came together to witness them committing their lives together. We felt like part of the family by the end of the day & that's a huge compliment to the lovely couple & everyone involved! We worked with a great team of vendors:  Cinthy with A Touch of Grace / Coordinator  - Branching Out Cakes / Wedding Cake - Not Just Flowers / Florals. Thanks to everyone who made this day happen, but thanks most of all to James & Brynn! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this amazing day - love you guys & cheers to the Daly's!

Sausalito Summer Wedding // KC & Anna

Sausalito is such a perfect place to visit in the summer. It's one of Chad & mine's favorite places to take a little day trip - we do the same things every time we go & every time, it's the perfect day. When we heard KC & Anna were getting married at one of our favorite spots, we were SO excited. The Clipper Yacht Club overlooks the bay & the beautiful hills of Tiburon...we found out that KC's family actually owns & runs the marina! Whenever you find out meaningful elements like that in your couples' weddings, it just makes the day feel even more special. There were so many details of this wedding that were beautiful, but I'm not sure it would have been as beautiful if it were a different couple. KC & Anna had such pure joy & love overflowing out of them into every bit of their wedding. As the photographers, Chad & I get to see the most intimate, behind the scene moments throughout the whole day. It's one of my favorite parts of our job & it makes us feel very close to every couple we get to work with. This helps produce trust & genuine emotion while we are photographing. The best way I can describe KC & Anna's wedding is that the reality of their commitment to each other & the anticipation of finally getting the chance to start their lives together was always present in their mind. The ceremony was just so sweet & Christ-centered , which was incredibly beautiful & refreshing. We were truly honored to be a part of it. Congratulations, KC & Anna! Love you guys!
