Sarah and David are about the most laid back couple I have had the pleasure of photographing this year… they truly embody the spirit of San Francisco where they met & live. The weather was mostly gloomy with a 99.9% chance of scattered showers and 2% chance of occasional peeks of sun…but these two didn’t bat an eye! We just broke out the umbrellas and carried on as usual and made some really fun and unique photos along the way…fog & mist can be really beautiful! As is our custom here at L, the pretty little things kick it off….
Dad may or may not be a huge softie…
you know your dress is perfect when it elicits this response from anyone:
sarah, I think you must be a runner. I have calf envy.
and finally, David makes an appearance!
Now off to the Japanese Garden at the Botanical Gardens for the ceremony!
little dude wasn’t so sure at first if we were gonna be friends…love the scowl.
I love David’s expression when he first spots Sarah coming down the aisle…. and the ring bearer has the best seat in the house
and just like that…married!
beautiful bouquets by Botanicals Design Studio … Look at the size of that peony!
a stroll around the gardens…and the only little pops of sunshine we got all day
as we left the gardens, we felt the first little drops of rain, then the storm clouds moved in
LOVE the hazy foggy misty-ness in these next few
the sky cleared up briefly as we arrived at the Forest Park Visitor’s Center for the reception
the cookies…seriously cute.
I like a couple who gets themselves a piece of all three kinds of cake. (who can resist the Cakery?!)
love seeing the parents have fun (happy 34th anniversary you two)
watch out ladies… this ring bearer charmed every single female at this wedding (including ME!) into dancing with him. (he asked…what, I’m gonna say no?!?)
what I am most certain are David’s contributions to the wedding festivities!
the sky did not look so clear at the end of the night…it was so mysterious looking I had to take another shot as I was leaving!
Thanks Sarah and David for letting me capture your day, and for not letting a few rain drops spoil your beautiful wedding!
