Sometimes you prepare for rain, expect rain, and instead get nothing but blue sky. In the days leading up to Calla and Jo’s wedding, the forecast looked wet. We came up with a rough plan in case of rain, but it didn’t vary so much from the clear day plan. When I arrived at the house in Stinson Beach where getting ready was taking place, Calla and Jo were enjoying the beautiful day and doing their hair and makeup together. There was Cowgirl Creamery cheese in the kitchen and a loaf of local bread. Once Calla and Jo were ready, we heading up to Mount Tam where their wedding guests were dropped off via yellow school buses. A progression to Trojan Point soon followed. There was music, singing, toasts, and Calla and Jo married each other (no officiant). After some pictures among the Serpentine rock formations, we heading to the Stinson Beach Community Center for Hog Island Oysters and beautiful food by Fork Full of Earth and the live music of Qinn Deveaux and his band. Such a wonderful day.

Great people, beautiful places, fun times, lots of love, laughter, and joy, excellent food and music… 2015 was a good year.
When I first started talking with Molly and Jake about photographing their wedding, it was a good sized affair that they were planning. At a certain point in their process, they decided that the wedding that they had been planning was not the wedding that they wanted… so they shifted their focus. They decided that they wanted to get married somewhere hilly with beautiful views. They wanted just a small group of friends and family, killer food, and to keep things simple. So when I got to Fort Mason to catch the shuttle to Trojan Point on Mount Tam, I was not surprised to see a school bus pull up to take us to the top of the mountain. With smiles on our faces, we all boarded the bus. Jake did roll call. Once we arrived at Trojan Point we walked out to the point and were greeted by views of Marin, San Francisco, and the Pacific Ocean. The cool breeze balanced the warmth of the day. Molly and Jake’s ceremony was bursting with heart. After the ceremony we travelled back to Fort Mason to the restaurant, Greens. The staff there was absurdly nice, and the food exquisite. Elizabeth Clayton of Lowe House Creative made sure that all the details of the day were taken care of. Belle Flower of Oakland did the flowers. And Molly made the chocolate chip cookies. It was a beautiful, intimate, and personal wedding. I feel so honored to have been apart of it. Congrats Molly and Jake!
