Rain drizzled down from the overcast San Francisco sky as I pulled up to the house EJ and Tim had rented for their wedding. I parked in a 2 hour parking spot knowing that I would be much longer than that. Fingers crossed. I watched the woman in the car in front of me apply a parking permit to the bumper of her car. It seemed to take her a very long time. Because of the wet weather, I contemplated bringing my rain shoes, but at the last minute decided to wear my dressy shoes. I got out of my car, grabbed my camera bag, and headed up to the house.
They had told me that it would be an intimate affair, but I couldn’t remember exactly how intimate. There were 13 of them… and me. Pretty intimate. I like small gatherings.
EJ and Tim were wonderfully sweet. They welcomed me in, told me a bit of their story, and let me do my thing. Once everyone was dressed and ready, we got on a motorized trolly and headed to Golden Gate Park and then over the Golden Gate Bridge to the Point Bonita Lighthouse. The rain seemed to have magically stopped for us, and we were left with moody skies and moist air. The walk out to the Light House was very impressive. The wind was blowing and waves were crashing on the rocks below us. EJ and Tim walked hand and hand down to the point. Their friends and family walked wide eyed behind them trying to take it all in. Tim’s mother officiated the marriage ceremony. The joy she brought with her was infectious. I felt super stoked to be able to capture this special moment in EJ and Tim’s lives.
From Bonita Point, we progressed to Flour and Water for an amazing multi hour meal.
Congrats EJ and Tim. I am so glad to live in a State where you two can be married.
