Rancho Nicasio outdoor West Marin wedding

Country music, bbq and a beautiful view onto the golden hills of West Marin? Yes please :) Elliott and Kelsey got married at the scenic Rancho Nicasio, which is a fantastic venue that is perched right in Nicasio valley. Just less than an hour from San Francisco, you feel like you’re much further away from any city. I loved the pure joy these two had with one another! Also, this wedding had LOTS of great shoes… you’ll see :) Congrats Elliott and Kelsey! <3

Michelle and Andrew at The City Club of San Francisco

Michelle and Andrew were like giddy teenagers - so in love - and so excited to be marrying one another! This elegant wedding erupted in song, as Michelle and her besties busted out “Going to the Chapel of Love” while getting ready. Andrew’s childhood pals teased him just the right amount, while also quoting Rilke. Thank you for sharing your special day with me, lovebirds!

“A complete sharing between two people is an impossibility and whenever it seems, nevertheless, to exist, it is a narrowing, a mutual agreement which robs either one member or both of his fullest freedom and development. But, once the realization is accepted that, even between the closest human beings, infinite distances continue to exist, a wonderful living side by side can grow up, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole and against a wide sky!” Rainer Maria Rilke

San Francisco City Hall wedding with marigolds

Marigold + mint bouquet, gold sneakers, scarves, dancing… this wedding had so many sweet elements! In addition to growing their own bouquet, Bill and Katherine gifted their guests marigold seeds (I got some, too!) which connects their special day to future blooms in the gardens of their community. In addition, marigolds are good companion plants: they protect a wide variety of plants from pests and harmful weeds. If you plant a marigold beside most any garden vegetable, that vegetable will be healthier. What a lovely metaphor.

San Francisco City Hall wedding with Classic Cable Car tour to Fort Point and Baker Beach

A perfect spring day graced this wedding that began at San Francisco City Hall and adventured around the city in a Classic Cable Car, stopping at Fort Point and Baker Beach. What is better than dancing on a trolley car, drinking Veuve Clicquot while simultaneously taking in the view of the Golden Gate Bridge? Not much! Felicitations à Anna et Rabea!
