In years past, it has seemed like I found myself shooting one or two weddings that broke the mold in some way, but for the most part they kept to a formula. Recently, I feel that people are becoming more brave, or adventurous, or feeling more free to make their wedding into the event that they want. Certain traditions carry on, but I see new ones forming, and old ones being sculpted to suit the needs of brides and grooms today. While this trending towards personalizing weddings can make my job unpredictable, I am stoked for the challenge and the newness that it presents. Wendy and Michael’s wedding was a mix of old and new. There were certainly some traditional aspects to it. And there was a fondue bar and candy buffet and games. We started shooting at 8am and were home for dinner. The vendors were all great. People seemed to have a great time. Event coordination was done by Downey Street Events, the wedding was held at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, the stylist was C.J. Poelman, make-up by Jennifer Gamez, florist – Amy Burke Designs, rocking string quartet – Elegant Touch of Strings, and officiating the wedding was Rabbi Nicki Greninger. And now for some pictures. Enjoy!
